2022 Best Soul Food

Food for the Soul

Brothers William and Donnell Singleton’s love of community is the secret ingredient at this completely halal restaurant, which serves up plate after plate of favorites, from smothered chicken to beef ribs to jerk chicken with collards. For one thing, Food for the Soul prepared 80,000 meals for locals in need during the early days of COVID. And now? It still stands above the rest for creating an atmosphere that’s as homey — you’ll be greeted the minute you set foot in the door — and comforting as the food itself.
