Bringing the art of the story back to the dinner table, Eatonville Restaurant launched Food and Folklore, a new monthly series intertwining storytelling and fabulous food, on November 13, 2009. Food and Folklore is wrapped in the spirit of gifted storyteller and folklorist Zora Neale Hurston’s brand of hospitality and a generosity with food.



"Upscale cooking celebrates a down-home writer... If Zora were here, she might jump up on the table and dance."

"What you are doing continues to change the literary, artistic and economic landscape of DC."
