The menu includes dishes such as deviled eggs BLT, banana chia pudding parfait, lobster omelette, shrimp and grits, loaded Oreo pancakes, crispy chicken and waffles, and cheesesteak nachos with eggs and Doritos.

For those looking to sip their food, regular Mimosas and Bloody Marys will be available, along with Amina specialty drinks like the Akila, made with vodka, lemon juice, lavender and pear nectar.

Felicia Wilson, the first owner of the restaurant, named Amina after her daughter. The interior of the restaurant is inspired by the ancient warrior goddess of Nigeria with gold designs and African decor.

“It’s been an incredible first few months since opening the doors to my first restaurant,” Wilson said in a statement. “We wanted to make sure we had dinner service going before breakfast started, and I’m confident we’re ready for the next step.”
