Located just south of Morningside Park near Columbia University, Miss Mamie’s is a soul food restaurant where you’ll want to try as many things as possible. So try to come with a group and get a sampler plate, which comes with fried shrimp, chicken, ribs, and three sides. One of those sides should be the collards with smoky ham hocks, and we recommend subbing the subpar ribs for fried catfish that tastes like it’s encrusted with hushpuppies. If you eat in, there’s lots of seating in the relaxing dining room that has a miniature red piano, and Norma Jean (the owner who opened Miss Mamie’s in 1997) will probably come around and check in during your meal.
