Hurston Murals Drive Decor of Eatonville Restaurant

WASHINGTON, DC—I had brunch at Eatonville on Saturday. It was the second time I had been to the restaurant near U Street.

Eatonville, named for the Florida hometown of Harlem Renaissance writer Zora Neale Hurston (and the oldest incorporated African American municipality in the United States), opened in 2009.

The restaurant is across the street from Busboys and Poets; The establishments share an owner.

The food is fair, but the atmosphere is warm and has a bit of Southern charm with an eclectic decor driven by colorful murals that reflect the author’s cultural spirit.
