Soule Chicago - Chicago
West Town has an authentic soul food restaurant in Soule, a tiny, no-frills establishment on the Chicago Avenue strip that also includes Beatnik, Funkenhausen, Roots and Porto.
For those also looking for a BYOB alternative to the usual sushi offerings, it's a good option. That's because guests may pour their favorite libations--which pair well with the fried catfish and fried-green tomatoes--or spike the house beverage, Soule Punch (a very sweet concoction of lemonade, red Kool-aid and iced tea).
Other dinner options include jerk shrimp, shrimp and grits, grilled lamb chops, fried chicken, and crab legs served with potatoes and sweet corn on the cob.
