This soul food and seafood restaurant dancing on the border between Crown Heights and Bed-Stuy offers unique and bold flavors. Operated by a husband-and-wife duo, Black Nile only serves halal meat and poultry prepared with signature herb seasonings and sauces (which are also available for purchase). Start off with their Crab Cornbread before choosing from a large selection of seafood served over Aged Cheddar Cheese Grits. In addition, there’s also the option to create your own grilled, fried, or baked meal from mains like Lobster Tail, Baked Turkey Wings, Catfish, and Jumbo Shrimp. Finish it off with Blueberry Cornbread.
Like the name suggests, you can have the best of both worlds at Black Nile when you order any of their signature made-from-scratch soul food or seafood dishes. Here, owners Hasson and Fanerra Dupree take pride in only serving Halal meat and poultry. Honey glazed salmon, grilled or fried catfish, and shrimp po’ boys are just a few of the entrees you can choose from. Just make sure you save room for dessert and try some of their glazed blueberry cornbread.
