Fodor's Expert Review Appioo

$$ U Street Corridor African
Washington, D.C. is a hub for the African diaspora, with many different countries represented in the city's culinary scene. Appioo, a well-established Ghanaian restaurant owned by chef Prince Matey, is set in the basement of a row house and has an intimate dining room decorated with intricate African wood sculptures. Try the spicy okra stew, the famous goat burger, or one of the most popular (and contested) West African dishes, jollof rice. The drink list features cocktails flavored with mango, pineapple, and other tropical fruits. If you go on a weekend, you may catch live African music.
