Afrique Restaurant's founder, Olakunle Ayodeji - whose nickname is "Flash" - operated a restaurant in his earlier life, and for 20 years he nursed the idea of building a restaurant serving authentic African cuisine.
Finding the right location held back his dreams, but he kept on searching and accidentally stumbled onto Afrique's location, once a Mexican restaurant but closed for 10 years.
It was the perfect venue to launch his dreams.
Flash figured it was time to stage a comeback, bringing the warmth, hospitality, entertainment and authentic cooking of his motherland, Africa, for all here in America to experience for themselves.
Thus was born the Afrique Restaurant and Entertainment.
