Amy Ruth's feels as if it has always existed. It's confident and comfortable—just as we imagine Carl Redding's grandmother, the restaurant's namesake, must have been. Redding opened his soul-food kitchen in 1998, a year after Amy Ruth passed away, and what a tribute it is to her, to her cooking and to a number of noteworthy African Americans. Order the "Rev. Al Sharpton" (fried or smothered chicken and waffles), the "Stan Hoffman & Lu Willard" (BBQ spare ribs), or any other soul-food staple: fried chicken, catfish, collard greens, ham hocks. If you aren't so lucky to have a southern grandmother of your own to cook for you regularly, visit Carl Redding's instead.
