The soul food restaurant plans to renovate and promises "new menu items and a better dining experience."
A Washington Street soul food restaurant known for its chicken and waffles has closed down for renovations.

With a short menu featuring just a few items, basic Southern American home cooking, Soul Food for short, and a changing menu that will feature an array of diverse ethnic specialties. And yes, chicken-and-waffles are on offer. Scott will spend the next year trying to succeed where others have failed, repeatedly.
