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?

    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)

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

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

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

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