Open all of eight months, Sweetpea is a tiny spot on Georgia Ave. with some slim counters and stools for eat-in. Worth the cramped conditions.
I got the smothered chicken (ordered white meat) with mashed sweet potatoes and collards. The gravy was nice and chicken-y, the skin was a gloppy delight, and the meat moist and tender. The collards were just right, and I was glad that in addition to 'candied yams,' they offered the mashed version. Nice hits of cinnamon and clove. Lots of love and pride goes into the food here.
A complete success.
