There is a new restaurant in Southwest that opened this year called the 7BoysCafé located at 5717 Woodland Avenue; on the corner of Woodland Avenue and Ithan Street.
Gina Gbondo, chef and proprietor, along with 6 other young Black men from South 57th Street, operate and manage the Café. It has been a dream of Gina’s to open a restaurant in his neighborhood and to have 6 of his friends help to make his dream come to life.
The food is prepared fresh daily and the portion size for the price is a bargain. Another factor that makes the café unique is that you can get all types of cuisines; seafood and soul food platters, African, Italian and Asian inspired dishes.
The 7BoysCafé also provides catering service for any occasion. The 7BoysCafé is open Monday through Friday, Noon till 11:00 pm, Saturday Noon till 1:00 am and Sunday 1:00 pm to 10:00 pm.
Gina says that once one has experienced the great taste of the food, they will come back for more.
