I had such a wonderful time with the African Women who Brunch, a very smart and inspiring group of women. It's an incredibly important network that we should all go out of our way to support - African women pulling together, connecting, and empowering one another.
Charming atmosphere with French Senegalese design aesthetic, and food inspiration. Cafe Rue Dix and their staff were amazingly supportive and accommodating to our groups needs throughout brunch. We will ALL be returning soon.
