Café Trope, web site, 2100 P Street NW, Washington, DC, 202-223-9335 (Metro Trip Planner – opens in new window) [Washingtonian | WaPo | MenuPages | Yelp | Gayot]
Caribbean food, cooked by a Gambian. It is right now one of the best places in Dupont Circle. The best way to go here is to order vegetarian, including of course the spinach and the collard greens. The plantains by the way are by far the best of any area restaurant. The salads are good, too. I sampled some of the meat and fish-based main courses. They weren’t bad but I don’t think on their own they give enough reason to come here.

I love this place the food was great and my wife enjoyed the atmosphere
Gonna be back for the thanksgiving dinner
It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Caribbean and French Cusine, so
when I walked into Cafe Trope I knew I was in the right place. I
definitely liked the vibe in here. The food is what I expected:
classic french cuisine with a Caribbean fare. Service was fine,
dinner was exquisite! Bring your wife or that special person for
lovely treat in Dupont Circle!
Unfortunately, now closed. I’d really meant to try it out, but never got the chance.
