Yvonne's Southern Cuisine has closed [Pelham]

I just found out today, when I was craving a take-out of their pigs' feet dinner. Their phone didn't ring properly, so I went to the website on the off-chance they were on vacation or something. This is all that's left of Yvonne's:

Pelham will be much poorer without it.

  1. Update (already!) I took the opportunity to email to let them know I wished them well. Back came a reply that they're relocating to Mt. Vernon and will be open "SOON" around Thanksgiving. Good for them!

      Maybe they will take over part of the space where the empty Athena is now. Wouldn't that be nice!

      Probably never gonna happen though

    2. I passed by the restaurant last week, and there's a sign that says they'll be reopening in mid-November with new owners. So all's not lost...and hopefully the fried chicken will still rock the house.

        Do you know what's going into that space? Their first step should be taking down the old signage!

      2. I happened to find this online. If this is true, the place already opened on Sunday.

        1. They've been open for about a week now in Mount Vernon. Not named Yvonne's though, it is called the House of Soul. No signage up yet.

          1. Don't worry they are relocating to Mt Vernon in a great spot on the corner of Park and E. Prospect. They are setting up shop now, but will be open soon! It might be under a different name when they open, but the same great food, family, and staff.

              According to the link it's been open for a week. Is that not true?

                see my post above, they have been open for a couple of weeks now.
