New D.C. restaurant Bronze creates food from Afrofuturism
Bronze, a new restaurant on H Street NE, is combining Afrofuturism with food.
Its use of fire — charred, torched. and grilled dishes abound — and a mix of worldly spices draw from the founder’s fantasy of globetrotter Alonzo Bronze settling on a Caribbean island 700 years ago. (Whoa, right?)
- We can see why Bronze has been described as one of the most interesting restaurants to open in a while.
What’s cooking: The menu features small plates and larger entrees divided into garden, land, and sea.
- We took note of the distinctive takes on seafood dishes, including charred yuzu squid on skewers and a big plate of prawns over red mustard greens. A half dozen oysters come torched — although ours were barely so — with flying fish roe.
If you feel like sticking to the comforts of land, we recommend the braised oxtail with pappardelle pasta and the couscous with grilled aubergine and broccolini.
