A Chain Restaurant in Ecuador

***The staff of the Jim Crow Museum receives dozens of letters and emails. Some of these communiques offer insight into race relations -- historically and in the present. While some are hateful, we have decided to share some of these letters and emails with our Internet visitors.***

Hello, my name is Joshua Ferris. I am an American living in Quito, Ecuador. This is a chain restaurant in Ecuador that appears in multiple places in the city of Quito. I thought you may find it appropriate for the Jim Crow museum.

Menestras del Negro

[Translation: Vegetables of the Black (person)...Prepared like at home].
