I found my way to Hen Quarter, in Alexandria, Virginia during my never ending search for Black-Owned businesses to visit and enjoy. Hen Quarter is a comfort food lover's dream, located at the corner of cobble stoned King and Columbus Streets in historic Old Town (once home to President George Washington) just minutes from Washington, D.C. Hen Quarter, with its traditional southern menu, fits perfectly into the antiquity of its surrounding neighborhood.
Along Columbus Street, blue and white Gingham-checkered covered tables align the the side of the restaurant for outdoor dining. Inside, seating is available on the first and second floor. I was greeted by a hostess who seated me and my son upstairs.
