More than just vegan food, this plant-based refuge shows locals that soul food is an ever-evolving concept with endless possibilities. This black-owned eatery artfully convinces anyone unsure about eating vegan food as co-owner Brenda Beener brings her NOLA bayou roots to give us a vegan soul food cuisine that we never knew could exist. With options such as a mac-n-“cheese”, craw “fish,” “shrimp” po’ boy, yams and BBQ “ribs,” Southern comfort food is served sans preservatives, animals, and the other stuff we thought we couldn’t live without while retaining the flavorful ethos that still make it soul food. Beener’s new renditions prove that soul food is ubiquitous—and will continue to evolve once the key ingredient starts with love. Set in an intimate bistro with warm wooden tables, you will be comforted by both the food and sweet family-owned aura of the eatery.
