Post Juanita Didn’t Disappoint – Baker’s, Detroit

You know your foodie chord has been touched when you start writing at the table where your food sits. Baker’s Keyboard Lounge in Detroit is forcing me to do just that. For starters, I couldn’t wait to have the stereotypical debate about what real soul food is, given my southern North Carolinian roots and expectations, but I also couldn’t wait to see what their soul food menu was going to entail.  Contrarily, Baker’s showed me the midwestern side of southern cuisine and pushed me into a nostalgic place that wreaked of House of Prayer on Beatties Ford Rd in Charlotte, NC circa 1996.

After downing a plate of fried chicken wings, baked macaroni and cheese, collard greens and cornbread, all I can say is post-Juanita did not disappoint. Juanita was the old cook that left within the last year and caused quite a stir due to her soulful culinary gift to mankind. I am here to tell all Livernois locals, there is no need to fear. Juanita’s recipes are still in tact.  So stop by when you’re in town for a little bit of live jazz, but more importantly some good ol’ post-Juanita soul food, and some extremely generous pours on the spirits. Cheers!
