10 Soul Food Spots In NYC That You Should Know

Ruthie’s Restaurant

ADDRESS: 560 Myrtle Ave.
NEIGHBORHOOD: Clinton Hill, Brooklyn

You can always count on friendly service at this family owned restaurant. It might take a while for your food to arrive, but it’s definitely worth it. You can get fish and waffles instead of the standard chicken and waffles, which sets this soul food spot apart from the rest. They might charge a bit more than some of the competition, but digging into their ribs, fish, pork chop, or BBQ chicken sandwich, you won't even care. Their dessert menu features apple pie, sweet potato pie, german chocolate cake, red velvet cake, and pineapple coconut cake. Be sure and get a half and half with your meal—you’re welcome.
