Jamal Sahri Opened Utopia in 1990, establishing its place as a cornerstone in the U-Street community. Offering an ideal local for location for folks to gather, share ideas, music, food, and art. The restaurant has served as a venue for chefs, artists, musicians, community groups to express, relax, share and enjoy the things that make life utopian. 15 years later Utopia stays true to its ideals, still offering the clients original favorite dishes and featuring the original art over the bar, while keeping the movement fresh with exciting new food specials, great live music, and expanded dining room and the back lounge. All designed to ensure your time in utopia is idyllic.
