Black Nile

Owned by couple Fanerra and Hasson Dupree, this Crown Heights spot specializes in more upscale takes on classic soul food, including Cajun-style seafood. Pair their juicy fried chicken with any of their countless sides, like baked mac and cheese, coconut candied yams, or Cajun pasta alfredo. If you like seafood, they have options like shrimp over grits (the cheesy grits are amazing, by the way), double crab cakes, and catfish.
