Slinging rib-sticking, satisfying soul food, Levi’s Port Soul Food Café was named Editor’s Pick by the Washington Post’s Going Out Guide, which commented on its nautically themed décor. The menu cultivates southern fare—including creamy mac ‘n’ cheese—that is as comforting as a hug from the Marshmallow Man’s grandmother. Dining duets tear into flocks of hearty main dishes, such as fried chicken, baked or fried fish, and chicken wings. Two sides flank each entree, from belly-warming mashed potatoes to candied yams, which Washington Post correspondent Erin Hartigan describes as “cooked to perfection.” Like an altruistic rumpelstiltskin, a rich dessert spins the meal’s sugary denouement as mouths bathe in banana pudding and forks trade plunges into pound cake. Wash down the soulful meal with a pair of drinks.
Levi’s Port Soul Food Café is open Monday through Friday 3 p.m.–7 p.m. and Saturday from 12 p.m.–6 p.m.
