Part restaurant and part community gathering spot, Busboys & Poets is a socially-conscious restaurant founded in 2005 by Iraqi-American activist and restauranteur Anas “Andy” Shallal. The eatery is divided into five separate areas, including a bookstore, the gallery, where works from local artists highlight the décor, and the Langston Room, a dinner theater-style area with a stage. The menu has a selection of burgers, pizzas, and sandwiches, as well as vegan items, and the calendar is full of special events like author talks and open mic poetry nights.
