**There is a small eatery at 3820 Lancaster Avenue -- an area trying to redefine itself economically even while the pressures of gentrification and the ``so-called'' property of traditional cultures work to gain or regain property.
**The food at Eat Cafe' is pretty good and the menu changes weekly. Eat Cafe' is really an experiment that seems to be working quite well. There is a suggested price of $15. per person, but if you have no funds, you can pay the next time or not at all. Remember your drinks outside of water is not free even if you can't pay. There is an additional price [$2.75], for specialty drinks like Cinnamon-Iced Tea.
** The fish I had last week was baked, which was good, and the vegetables are always done to perfection. Once I had rice which the Chef / Manager [ MR. Donnell Jones Craven] told me was not cooked like regular rice from a box, but with vegetable or chicken stock and spices like parsley and garlic. The MR Craven also told me the rice is rinsed to get the starch off of it. The end result is rice like you may have never experienced it before. Delicious!
** Other main dishes have included Chicken Pot Pie with a puff-pastry crust and a cheese sauce. This was really delicious and tasty. Fried chicken was also good as was the Cheese and pasta [If your not totally tired of this dish like I am.] .
- I forgot to say something about the service. The service is much more than adequate. The wait staff is well attired, professional in manner and attitude, and there is rarely a long wait for the food. The kitchen staff [and I have met at least two of the chefs] are highly trained, highly qualified and professional in manner, attitude and attire. Our Black activist community needs to come out and support this stellar establishment.
