Restaurants with Soul

What is the restaurant in your little corner of New England that has the most Soul?? Soul can be many things to many people but it always has an explanation behind it. Here are a few examples from my little corner.

1. Moody's Diner: Not the best food around but as the song goes... you cant always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you get what you need.

2. Cafe Miranda: They are the Dude from The Big Lebowski, just right for their time. They roll with the times and are a truly creative machine.

3. Wasses Hot Dogs: The smell alone floods my head with memories

4. Dormans Dairy Dream: Summer nights on Rt.1 waiting for that Pistachio checkin out the locals.

  1. Southern Hospitality Soul Food on Whalley Ave. in New Haven.

    They have grandmas in the kitchen making chicken, BBQ, fried fish, collards and this amazing coconut-pineapple cake.

    Also has pictures of MLK on the walls, homemade curtains in the windows and good music always playing.
