Since Adwoa and Sylvester Osei Ford-Wuo parked their mobile African food business at the brick-and-mortar African Bar and Grill in 2010, they've done a lot to expand Denver's ethnic food scene. And now they've done a lot more: They've opened a second location, at 18601 Green Valley Ranch Road by Denver International Airport.
The new African Grill & Bar offers dine-in and takeout.
The owners say they wanted to bring more culture to the Denver area and give people a chance to experience Africa -- without taking a sixteen-hour plane trip. "It's all of Africa. We have West, East, South, Central, everywhere in Africa," explains Adwoa.
Seat yourself -- on the floor, if you like, at the new African Grill & Bar.
In many African cultures, sitting on the floor and eating communally as a group is a common practice. That's an option at the new restaurant. There's also more standard seating.
There's plenty of space for larger parties -- off the floor.
After a soft opening yesterday, this African Grill & Bar will host a grand-opening party on Saturday, October 19, when a cultural troop will perfform from 5 to 10 p.m. and a DJ will spin tunes from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Starting next week, the restaurant's regular hours will be Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays from noon to midnight, and Sundays from 11 a.m to 9 p.m.
