With the great soul food restaurants of Chicago closing, one by one, a new one would be a welcome treat.
Watch her in this Chicago Now video, talking about the new restaurant, the new theater, who she wants to star there, and how she feels about doing a tribute to Whitney Houston at the BET.
We did cringe to hear interviewer Chris Jones talk about the theater and never once mention the name of the neighborhood it's located in. According to him, it's on a "moribund" block somewhere between Wrigleyville and Andersonville. Oy.
