This Ivorian restaurant on U St. is so good you almost want to gatekeep, but then remember you’re not a hater who finds joy in other people’s misery. Starting as a pop-up and now in a brick and mortar shop, the restaurant specializes in grilled chicken platters and kebab sandwiches that are smoked and seasoned to perfection. We recommend the platter, which comes in a styrofoam container brimming with steak fries heaped on a quarter chicken. Add a side of plantains because plantains make any meal instantly better and you’re good to go. Literally. The restaurant is snug with a limited seating area so most people grab their meals and head back out.
