Art Scene: Jamal Sahri

This past Sunday, I walked into U-Topia, a bar/resto on 14th Street here in D.C. that has been around forever. It had been years since I last ate there and I was blown away as soon as I stepped in. The art of the walls were all A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I found myself constantly having to re-focus my attention to my conversation instead of glazing at the walls. As if that alone wasn't a fun experience, the food was so delicious. I know you are all thinking 'umm, what does this have to do with the motherland' and I'll tell you: the restaurant is own by Jamal Sahri, the art is done by Jamal Sahri and where oh where is Mr. Sahri from??? Of course, Morocco!!!
