We’re celebrating two years of Black Box Fix here at Easton! With February being Black History Month, there is no better time to support Black-owned businesses.
If you haven’t heard of Black Box Fix, here is what you need to know…
The Cleveland-based restaurant opened its doors at Easton in Spring of 2021, bringing a unique taste to Columbus. Its chef-inspired menu combines Creole-Cajun flavor with sandwiches and street food, cooked with love and served with passion, that will keep you coming back for more.
What is Creole/Cajun flavor?
Both Creole and Cajun cuisines are native to Louisiana and combine flavors and techniques influenced by European, Hispanic, African, and Native American cooking styles.
Creole food features rich sauces, tomatoes, and the prominent use of seafood, while Cajun dishes are more meat-heavy, one-pot dishes. The biggest difference between the two? Creole food tends to use more tomatoes and tomato-based sauces.
Prepare to be Amazed by Chef Rogers!
Chef Eric Rogers’ passion for food and family began at an early age. Starting at 8 years old, the chef-to-be learned to cook while helping at his grandparents’ restaurant, cooking family recipes he still uses. While working at a local hospital, Chef Rogers found joy in cooking for family and friends, causing some buzz in the community. Eric decided to take a risk and fully pursue his love for cooking in 2013. Since then, he’s opened 13 restaurants, won countless awards, and even appeared as a contestant on Food Network’s Guy’s Grocery Games.
