Let me start by saying, Jeff Eats absolutely loved The Potter’s House Soul Food Bistro. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a huge-fan of “cafeteria style” setups….maybe it takes me back to P.S. 179 in Brooklyn circa 1956—I just don’t know…but I really enjoy the whole business of sliding/picking-up food with a tray. Now I know- that some of you guys maybe thinking that I’ve totally cracked-up…but I loved the whole tray “vibe” of The Potter’s House Soul Food Bistro.
For the record, Jeff Eats “sampled”…fried chicken, roasted chicken, baked tilapia, smothered pork chops, mac & cheese, corn bread, candied yams, collard greens, sweet potato pie, peach cobbler. Trust me on this one, every item was delicious and the prices were dirt cheap.
Look! I was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1949. The Ocean Parkway Jewish Center was 5 blocks from my apartment building. Waldbaum’s and Bohack were the supermarkets of choice. The point—Jeff Eats wasn’t exactly “raised” on southern soul food. As a “kid” the closest I got to the stuff was Raynors Cabin in Baldwin, Long Island—and I think the owners of that joint were Irish.
Anyway… based on the above “personal history”…I’m telling you, that The Potter’s House Soul Food Bistro makes fabulous southern-soul food.
The Potter’s House Soul Food Bistro is open Saturday-Sunday, Wednesday 10:30am-6pm, Tuesday Thursday-Friday 10:30am-8pm, closed on Monday
