In Saturday’s rant/revel post a reader commented:

“Rant: Ghana Cafe is closed! Just moved to Logan Circle recently and went there the first time last weekend. Thought it was strangely empty, but loved the food and planned on heading back many times. Walking past it yesterday, I discovered the chairs were empty out and the windows were half covered in newspaper! Anyone know what happened? Any tips on where else to get Ghanaian food?”

Ghana Cafe moved from Adams Morgan to Logan Circle back in Jan. 2010.

Sadly word of the closure turned out to be true – I peeked in the window Sunday morning:


As for where else to get Ghanaian food – you could try the new (formerly Rahama) Appioo African Restaurant at 1924 9th St, NW (just south of U St. near the new Dino’s Grotto):

“We serve authentic Ghanaian cuisine, and our menu includes traditional dishes such as waakye, fufu, banku,tou zafi, red red, and abunabunu soup. Take a look at our menu page to see all of our offerings.”
