Soul Kitchen closed; Bongo Room

Saw several positive comments very recently on Soul Kitchen (at North, Damen, and Milwaukee) so decided to toddle on down this morning. Guess what: closed up tighter than a drum. No signs but it sure looks out of business to me.
So we walked down a few blocks to the Bongo Room--got there just in time to get in before the place filled up. Line out the door. Service: great. Food: mediocre. Prices: too high. We all had omelets and they have a nice choice of various ingredients to compose your own. But each one of us agreed: nice-sized (they out to be at $8 per) but remarkably mediocre...over-cooked, dryish. We won't be back. But then they won't miss us because the people in the area either don't have enough other choices or have too much money. Line out the door within ten minutes of opening.
