Chef James Robinson makes top-notch dining accessible at another location of KitchenCray on H Street, just a two-minute drive away from The Apollo. This newly opened spot prides itself on creating culinary experiences for the community, and the restaurant team has done just that through both of their restaurant locations and partnerships with local nonprofits, shelters, and youth centers. In fact, Cray even stands for Creative Revolutionary Artistic Youth.
You’ll benefit from this chef’s diverse range of upscale experience when you sample the delicious flavors infused into everyday favorites on the menu. KitchenCray is known for fresh seafood, so consider the crab cake BLT, lobster mac, or shrimp and grits. Or sample the catfish and grits, topped with lump crab and the perfect sauce. Looking for brunch? You’ll find bacon, eggs, and French toast that will hit the spot. And when it’s cold outside, there’s nothing like some warm comfort food like a side of cheese grits. Top it off with a traditional rum cake or good old banana pudding for dessert.
The chef, owner, and servers are known to be friendly, so say hello and experience this new fan favorite on H Street. Tables are first-come first-serve, but you can sign up for a waitlist around 5 p.m. daily. We hear it is worth the wait. Expect temperature checks, distancing, and frequent cleaning. Prefer carry-out? Place a takeout order, pick up your meal, and dig into deliciousness.
