A bit about Eatonville Restaurant
Eatonville Restaurant, named in honor of writer Zora Neale Hurston’s Florida hometown, is real Southern-style cooking, crafted to pleasing perfection and served up from some of the greenest techniques around. As an homage to the Harlem Renaissance writer, the founders of Busboys and Poets created this Hurston-inspired haven whose menu brims with delicious Southern dishes, whose décor is adorned with the customary elegance of the country, and whose atmosphere is filled with jazz, story-telling and all-around merriment.
