DESIGN CONCEPT “Drop a pebble in the water, and its ripples reach out far.” Soul food should not be understood as plain food. The true soul food is the family bond that deepens after every meal spent together. The design for Soul embraces these precious moments that ripple forever in the heart of the patrons.
