Formerly the iconic Billy Blues, this venue has been resurrected as a soulful fusion of Southern food and live music. The impressive entryway, with a vintage jukebox and portraits of the legends of R&B, rock, jazz, and soul, opens to an inviting bar and crushed-velvet banquettes under moody lighting, all red and amber. A smallish menu offers favorites such as fried catfish, a Cajun-seasoned ribeye, and a hot chicken sandwich. The recommended Soul Roll app—a fried eggroll stuffed with shredded smoked oxtail and creamy collards—is indulgent and worth every calorie. Fried chicken, brined and seasoned, boasts crispy, golden skin and tender meat with a choice of side: smoked Gouda mac, collard greens, dirty rice, or grits (sadly, ours arrived less than piping hot). The scene stealer: lobster sliders, featuring luscious meat with a creamy parsley-onion schmear on buttery brioche buns. Dozens of TVs, a large patio (with hookahs!), and evening entertainment attract a party crowd, but we left before Latin Night kicked off.
