Washington, DC

1201 U Street, NW

“Dear PoPville,

On my way to work this morning, I noticed the sign was removed with a “for lease” banner put up. Also, the last couple of nights, it has been closed. What’s odd is the tables are still set up…”

I stopped by The Islander when I first noticed the sign was gone a few months ago and was told the sign simply broke. The for lease sign was for the upstairs space. For a second I was nervous because their telephone number was disconnected. But I stopped by today and they were indeed still open!

Their website says:

“The Islander is a family-owned and operated business with ” The Queen,” Chef Addie Green ruling this island kingdom. We believe she’s undoubtedly the best Caribbean cook in Washington, DC. The Islander is a landmark in the Caribbean Community and the Green family has collectively provided the finest in Trinidadian cuisine to the Washington Community for the past 40 years.
