Description - Ben's Chili Bowl by Tracey Gold Bennett

From the days when U Street was hailed as Black Broadway to the current revitalization and gentrification of the new millennium, Ben s Chili Bowl survived it all. On August 22, 1958, West Indian immigrant Mahaboob Ben Ali and his fiancee, Virginia Rollins, saw their dream realized as they opened a hot dog and chili shop on U Street. They never imagined that Ben s would become world renowned or such a beloved restaurant in the nation s capital. Today visitors to U Street will find a diverse and eclectic mix of residents, music venues, trendy shops, and, of course, the Bowl. The images in this book provide a look back over the 50-year history of Ben s Chili Bowl, U Street, the Ali family, and the patrons who have helped define Ben s as a vibrant cultural landmark."
