At Henry's Soul Cafe, the smell of crispy, lightly breaded chicken mingles in the air with the sweet scent of signature sweet-potato pie—just as it's been doing since 1968. Amidst this mouthwatering perfume, chefs concoct down-home southern soul food such as fried fish, smoky ribs, smothered pork chops, and mounds of creamy mac 'n' cheese. Each day, they lovingly bake their specialty sweet-potato pie, which is as wholesome, famous, and orange as Santa Claus after a bad spray tan. When Henry's green T-shirt-clad staff isn't doling out plates of rib-sticking fare, they strive to better their community by supporting charities that help the homeless, the blind, and children in need.
The kitchen crew at Kasey’s Seafood fries, grills, and steams local delicacies, including more than 10 types of fresh fish and five sizes of male and female crabs, and packs them for carryout. Respecting traditional preparations, cooks use no pork products in their creations, which also include hearty homemade soups and Southern-style sides such as hush puppies, collard greens, and mac and cheese. To accommodate the day’s other meals—breakfast, lunch, and fourth lunch—they also assemble deli sandwiches and platters of steak and eggs.
Choices abound at Cafe Luna, where chefs curate an extensive menu of Italian-inspired and American meals.

Diners ponder their selections atop plush bench seats arranged along pumpkin-hued walls. Mixologists, meanwhile, stir and shake mojitos, margaritas, and martinis behind the bar, which also houses eight rotating draft beers.

Eastern Market Tango introduces locals to the art of tango with group dance parties and lessons conducted by a pair of in-house instructors. Jake Spatz combines his love for dance and DJ'ing in his nightly activities at Eastern Market, and Maximilliano Gluzman brings the skills he learned studying tango with renowned Argentine dancers and teaching at La Academia in Buenos Aires. Their tango lessons focus on correct posture, leading, and following to help couples communicate through body language and respectfully traverse the dance floor. They also work on improvisation, to help couples find enjoyable ways to dance together in crowded clubs or ATM vestibules where space may be limited.
During milongas—dynamic tango dance parties—advanced and beginning students strut their sultry skills on the dance floor until the wee hours. Three-tiered plates of fresh fruit and dark chocolate beckon resting dancers, as pairs work their way across the studio’s spacious hardwood floors.
Khepra Anu, the self-proclaimed ?coconut king? and chef at Khepra's Raw Food Juice Bar, slips busily among hillocks of fruits, nuts, and veggies. He expounds on the importance of raw foods and fasting in health, comparing the process to that of a mechanic changing a car?s oil or a carpenter maybe buying flowers for his hammer once in a while. Blends of leafy green veggies, goji berries, and citrus fruits pour from a juicer, fueling patrons during fasts or simply augmenting traditional nutrition. The foundation for each beverage is coconut water from Florida-grown coconuts, and the elixirs are intended to give the body a chance to flush itself of toxins with seed milks, citrus blends, and mineral-rich greens. Khepra is also excited about raw foods, which he believes contain more naturally occurring nutrients, and prepares nut-and-hemp burgers, nori rolls, and wraps in the bustling shop.
