Healthier Soul Food For a Healthier Anacostia

Executive Chef Steve Lipscombe of Northeast DC's Langton Bar and Grille graced the Anacostia Library with savory samplings of pan fried tilapia, crabcakes and collard greens on Thursday, March 31.

Over 25 people patiently waited and listened to the chef discuss healthy alternatives and substitutes when preparing traditional southern soul food.

After the demonstration, every attendee recieved a sample and gave Lipscombe honest feedback. I rated the tilapia 8 on a scale of 10 and the crabcakes around 6. Note: I tend to heavily judge crabcakes because I grew up in Baltimore...home of the original crabcake!

The event was lots of fun and I threw out a couple of questions about bringing a Langston restaraunt chain to Anacostia. Lipscombe says that we are ready but the residents (and our dollars) must support the business venture.

Check out Langston Bar and Grille on Benning Road and tell the owner Antonio Roberson to come across the river!
