Okay so I went to San Fran. A couple of weeks ago, and went to a restaurant called "Farmer Brown" and it is described as Farm Fresh Soul Food.
It is not like the Soul Food people think of that is drowned in fats and sugars and zero nutrients. It runs off of African American local farmers' produce and meats. It was absolutely delicious, and I didn't gain 5 pounds in one sitting. Check out the website:
Well, I'm back home and I would love to find a restaurant in the MD/DC/VA area that is like Farmer Brown. If anyone has any suggestions, they would be greatly appreciated!
