Best Soul Food

1) Black-eyed Sally's BBQ & Blues

We all need a soul food fix now and again. If today’s your day, head to Hartford’s Black-eyed Sally’s, where blackened catfish, cornbread, collard greens, gumbo, cheese grits and fried chicken reign supreme. “We’re currently tweaking a classic shrimp and grits,” said owner James Varano, “so look for that to be a staple.” Varano and his family -- wife and co-owner Dara and daughters Eva and Ella, who rolls the silverware -- tend to equate soul food with winter time -- “When it's cold outside,” Varano said, “you want some stick to your ribs” -- but don’t think that has to be your personal soul food modus operandi: now’s a good time.
