Chef Kwame Onwuachi is flying the African flag high in the USA and has been acknowledged as one of Food & Wine Magazine's Best New Chef's for 2019.

He is plating masterpieces and doing it in gastronomical style at Kith/Kin which is at the InterContinental DC Wharf .

Although he's from the Bronx, Onwuachi's roots are firmly in Nigeria and actually West Africa because he creates Afro-Caribbean dishes and it's this that caught the attention of the team at Food & Wine.

In the magazine they write that "at Kith/Kin, Onwuachi emerges as a chef settling into himself, tugging at each intimate thread, braiding them into a modern celebration of the flavors of the African diaspora."

Kith/Kin has been a winning restaurant for Onwuachi, last month he was nominated for a Rammy Award in the category of rising culinary star and also named as a finalist for a James Beard Award.

The food accolades are rolling in for this top chef - he is definitely one to watch on the global food scene.
