Upscale soul food is the premise: wings, savory greens, Hoppin’ John, catfish and the other requisites, including the redeye gravy-smothered pork chop. Shrimp comes either barbecued or fried, and there’s a notable Louisiana-style gumbo. Period R&B, including the place’s namesake tune, and vintage Life covers featuring esteemed African-Americans, ensure that no roots are forgotten here, however uptown it may be. L & D Mon.-Fri., D Sat.-Sun. Brunch Sun.
