This Pan-African soul food restaurant from chefs Solomon Johnson and Mike Woods is a collaboration born from heritage and innovation. For Maryland-born Johnson, it’s his Jamaican culture, and for Oakland native Woods, it’s the food he grew up with and fell in love with when traveling to New Orleans and the Caribbean. The result: bold flavors that take you on vacation even if you’re eating it at your own dining room table. The cultures come together in dishes like the Adobo Pork Bussdown, Sea Island Red Peas, Carolina Gold Rice, Fried Plantains, and Jerk BBQ and Kijani Kibichi sauces. The Gangsta Mac—a crispy corner of the pan mac and cheese—is a must with every order.
