Raro Lae invited me to the influencer and press dinner of 12|30 Restaurant & Champagne Lounge for the relaunch of their menu.

The ambience of the lounge was an upscale vibe in a two-story DC building with a nice bar and just enough room for an intimate setting.

Since it’s opening last year, the restaurant started with French cuisines but the owner decided to cater more to their African audience. Starting in the fall, the restaurant will add the dishes I was able to taste to their menu.

The menu had various dishes like goat, plantains, and oxtails that reminded you of the motherland. My favorite was definitely the Waayke and Braised Oxtails! The meat was very tender and flavorful and being paired with jasmine rice was so good.

All of the dishes were great and full of flavor from the appetizers to the main courses. They also offer desserts. The lounge also offers brunch and day parties on the weekends on their rooftop!

If you’re in DC or traveling, definitely check out this spot for some good eats!
