This immigrant-, Black-, and women-owned space features both a cafe and full-service restaurant inside the most unexpected of spots: a former comfort station (aka public restroom). The diminutive interior has been transformed into a serene, airy respite, complete with kitchen-facing bar and pale pink cushioned booths, that feels a million miles away from the busy street just outside the window. The African Diaspora comfort menu seems relatively straightforward on the surface, but the bright, delicate flavors elevate each appetizer and entree into something special. Early winners include the jackfruit sliders and brown butter trout, but staff genuinely struggle to recommend one dish over another simply because they’re all so beloved.
