The flavors of Little Haiti are shaped by the immigrants who have settled here. French-Creole and Afro-Caribbean dishes dominate the menu at the neighborhood's many restaurants, kitsch bars, and family-owned eateries. Evolving food trends have also staked a claim. While one side of the block is home to traditional bakeries and bodegas, the other hosts up-and-coming food joints. Some of Little Haiti's signature dishes are the same ones that have been passed down through generations of Caribbean immigrants, including cornmeal with beans and stewed chicken. Eating out in Little Haiti is relatively inexpensive, allowing you to try a little more of everything. Finish your meal with a true taste of the tropics: rum, one of Haiti's most famous exports.
