Miss Toya’s Creole House Now Open in Downtown Silver Spring

Miss Toya’s Creole House is now open in Downtown Silver Spring, according to a post on the restaurant’s Instagram account.

Jeffeary Miskiri, who founded Miskiri Hospitality Group in 2021, opened the restaurant at 4 p.m. today in the space formerly occupied by Eggspectation at 923 Ellsworth Drive in the Downtown Silver Spring development.

Miskiri, raised in Takoma Park and a Montgomery Blair High School graduate, has over 10 years of experience in the restaurant business, spending seven years working in family restaurants and running a catering service. He opened Po Boy Jim Bar & Grill, his first brick-and-mortar operation, on H Street NE in Washington.

“I went from being a chef to being a restaurateur, on to being the founder of my own hospitality group,” he said to the Source last year.

Miss Toya’s is the sister restaurant to my full-service restaurantCreole on 14th [in Washington], the reason behind it being to expand on Creole and Cajun food,” Miskiri said. “The diversity and the body of language that that cuisine presents is so large that I knew that I could something similar but totally different at the same time.”

In addition to the rum cocktails and crab claws, Miskiri said to the Source last year that the restaurant’s menu will also include items with a twist, such as jambalaya fettucine pastas and a variety of other offerings from his portfolio of dishes.

Washingtonian Magazine reported in their Spring & Summer Restaurant Preview that Miss Toya’s will offer seating for 150 and an outdoor patio.

“This might be my most exciting project,” he said. “I say that a lot, but seeing that I’m actually coming back home where I grew up. . .I know everything about downtown Silver Spring.

“I’m just really excited to bring that Cajun-Creole flair and twist to the neighborhood.”
