One could easily say that TLBRT Hospitality has been around since 1993, when Dominique Tolbert, founder & creator, was growing up in a Liberian household, being introduced to the flavors of West African and Caribbean cuisine early on. Since then, her travels have taken her to NYC, where she obtained a degree in hotel & tourism management, and abroad, through multiple study opportunities, which have allowed her to explore the cuisines of many cultures across the globe.

The art of bringing food, music, and people together started when hosting Sunday Dinner parties for friends in New York City, giving them the opportunity to be some of our first and favorite food critics we have had to date, which has ultimately served as a model for today and future business to come. 

Our mission is to bring global foods, intimate event concepts, and unique design pieces, to individuals in the DMV area, NYC, West Africa, and beyond. We look forward to hosting you on this journey and showing you a bit of the life we live through food, events, and design.
