Federal US Marshalls Raid New Ivoire
Last week we caught a raid in progress – from rushing out of unmarked vehicles in full body armor and brandishing long guns, to a suspect being taken out of New Ivoire Restaurant with hands raised.
It appeared as if about a dozen officers were involved and one suspect was detained.
New Ivoire Restaurant (which I’ve been going to for 20 years now) has the best Dèguè or Thiakry which makes a great breakfast or dessert.
