upscale southern/soul for nice birthday dinner?

Any alternatives to B. Smith's or Jezebel? Which of those is better? What happened to Ida Mae's?

  1. not sure what is authentic southern/soul but the food at voyage is awesome and the cuisine is described as sothern/cajun. also heard good things about lola (but haven't eaten there myself)

    1. I really like Maroon's on West 16th St.

        Just about to suggest the same place!

            sounds like I gotta try it -- thanks!

      2. If you don't do B. Smith's then try Maroon's.

        1. To answer your question about Ida Mae, it closed last year.

          1. I'll pile on w/everyone else--Maroons would be my suggestion too
