Clinton Hill's SoCo is big, bold, and sweet. The restaurant’s long space, decorated with wood-paneled walls and date-ready tables for two, includes an outdoor greenhouse and a front lounge/sports bar catering to locals thirsty for conversation and cocktails (like a Cucumber Cooler and a light, fruity mojito). The menu’s strongest items are its most basic. An exotic yam tempura sushi roll and a “Jazzy” salad topped with candied walnuts and a fried round of goat cheese add variety to the kitchen’s “Southern-fused” lineup. But the real star openers are the sweet cornbread, an incredibly creamy side of cheddar grits, and a cast-iron skillet filled with a generous serving of mac and cheese—its deep, multilayered taste starts sweet and ends on a sharp note. Entrées include soul food standbys like jambalaya and molasses-braised short ribs, as well as a too-sweet butternut-squash ravioli, but nothing beats the indulgent buttermilk fried chicken breast and wing combo, served over a thick red velvet waffle with a side of sweet maple syrup. Treat yourself.
