The big, colorful sign immediately steals your eyes away from anything else on the block. Open for about two years now, Eatonville serves up fancy low-country Southern cuisine.
The open dining room is outfitted with vibrant murals that serves a tribute of sorts to famed African-American writer Zora Neale Hurston. If you’re not feeling all that committed to ordering a whole entree, you can easily make do with a few of their delicious sides.
The drink menu could use a little work, but at least they serve it to you in mason jars. But if you’re just looking for a good bowl of gumbo, look no further.
Located at 2121 14th Street, Eatonville is a short walk from the corner of 14th and U, one of this foodie’s favorite spots in the city.
