Chef Kwame Onwuachi has roots all over the world. He can trace his heritage to Nigeria and Jamaica, to New Orleans and New York City. The mix of cultures has culminated in a signature style of homestyle cuisine that incorporates all different kinds of flavors, and Chef Kwame now serves it at Kith and Kin in Washington, DC.
He debuted the eatery just a few weeks ago, a melting pot of international cuisines in the capital of a nation known as the Great American Melting Pot. Grab a table to experience Chef Kwame's unique dishes, which are inspired by African, Caribbean, and American cooking. At dinner, you can choose to taste-test a few different tapas, from spiced chicken pate to King Crab curry, or stick with a single entree. Chef Kwame creates torched mackerel with jollof rice and Nigerian red sauce, Mom Duke's peel-and-eat Gulf shrimp dressed in citrus juice and butter, and the Kith burger topped with jerk bacon, caramelized onions, garlic mayo, cheese, and romaine lettuce.
