Creole on 14th

The new full-service restaurant made its debut in Columbia Heights on Friday at the cofounder of DC’s Po Boy Jim restaurants. Creole is open for lunch, or brunch and dinner every day at 3345 14th St. NW, a New Orleans Criolla and southern convenience food restaurant from Jeffery Miskiri chef. The restaurant will be good to go, in just a few days, but the day celebrating the liberation of the last enslaved Black people in the US, Miskiri, 32, put an opening back to coincide with June X. The new, more “friendly’,’ now in his portfolio, tell the restaurateur that three restaurants are in place.

In D.C. Miskiri was raised. Around the age of eight, as he began supporting his mom around McDonald’s, he was drawn to the food business. In 2014, he started Po Boy Jim, which serves po’boy sandwiches and gumbo inspired by Louisiana. Now he has two locations, in Shaw and H Street NE. In many parts of D.C., the brand of Po Boy Jim has since struck a chord. Miskin said, culture. Private events were held in the restaurants and US senators and congressmen were given catering services. J.P. Chairman and CEO of Howard University. Both of them have eaten there, Morgan Chase & Co.

Rebecca Antoine, Miskiri ‘s mother, and his cousin Ian Reid are business partners. Yet he hits himself at Creole on the 14th. “A bit more formal, but not necessarily upscale,’ he said. ” I decided to do it. “I wanted to deliver more entrances and focus on the other dishes that were exclusive to us in our two other restaurants.” Miskiri acknowledged that it was impossible to open a new restaurant in the middle of a pandemic. Nevertheless, the popularity of the current fan base of Po Boy Jim has stopped him.

“We follow our slogan of good food and service,” he said. “There are still people to eat and we’re giving great food.” And while there were some potential employees nervous to start a new job amid the pandemic, others were excited about being part of the new project in Miskiri. ‘You ‘re Po Boy Jim, others were excited? For Po Boy Jim, I would love to go work, “he said. It wasn’t easy to run restaurants — especially as a small independent company — but it still meets Miskiri he said.

Miskiri said of the restaurant company: “To excel you must like and appreciate it.” “It can’t be about the money because if you’re satisfied you can satisfy you and enjoy whatever money you make.” Creole replaces the 14th restaurant in Tivoli Square, El Tio which closed in November. Miskiri said, renovating the restaurant with 3,300 square feet cost $250,000. While Mayor D.C. Muriel Bowser said some indoor seating will resume on Monday, Creole could only sit in the outdoor and indoor patio on the 14th until June 26, Miskiri said. He plans to do so while following the guidelines on social distance.

The property has between 115 and 130 spaces, but Miskiri plans to reduce its occupancy to 50 percent, by D.C., for an indefinite period. Jambalaya, Criolla, shrimp, and grains and crab grips can be found on the menu for custody. The entries are between $12-$15, and up to $22. Drinks like Creole punch and Blood Orange Mimosas will be served in the full-service bar on Sundays, once indoor seating has officially been enabled. The doors of the restaurant are now open, and accept orders, such as Uber Eats, Postmates, and DoorDash.

Creole food:

Louisiana Creole cuisine is a cooking style originally from Louisiana, the USA, which mixes West African, French, Spanish, Indian, Haitian influences and influences from Southern United States general cuisine. The kitchen of Creole is based on traditions encountered in Louisiana by the inhabitants of Louisiana before the purchase from Louisiana in 180 3 to the United States.

The key to Cajun and Creole cooking is to know how to make a good roux. The strategy was raised in the French language. A roux is’ a mixture of the same fat and flour, especially used to thicken a sauce or soup. ‘ The fat and the meal are then cooked together on the stovetop until a certain amount of brownness or obscurity has been achieved by mixing. Creole roux is considered to be lighter in New Orleans than cajun roux, usually made from butter or bacon fat and flour. Many Creole dishes, though, have a soft roux.

Oil or bacon fat and flour are usually made of Deep Roux. The fragrance of a healthy roux is so heavy that it lasts in clothes until it is cleaned. In creole, the scent is so widely acknowledged that some people know if they make a roux and sometimes conclude that they make a roux. The trick of making a good gumbo, like the right wine and the right beef, is that the roux is mixed with the meal.

Light roux: a light roux suits meal, because roux won’t overwhelm the flavors of subtle seafood. The darker taste of gumbos from beef is not accompanied by a light-colored roux. The flour is cooked to a golden brown for a good roux.

Medium roux: medium roux is the most diverse and likely the most common in New Orleans Creole cuisine. Most criollo dishes work well. The hue of a copper penny or peanut butter will transform medium roux. The dry, brownish taste that is commonly associated with gumbo begins to develop in the medium roux.

dark roux: A dark roux with its intense (dense) nutty taste can completely overwhelm one single gumbo in seafood. But it’s the perfect complement for the gumbo using the ham, bacon, crevices, or alligator. The color of milk chocolate is approximately black roux. It’s difficult to make a dark roux. It requires rather carefully heating oil and fat and starch, mixing continuously for 15-45 minutes (depending on the appropriate darkness), until the mixture has become very dark with a thick with nutty fragrance and smell.
