Besides celebrity spotting – Serena Williams and big Bill Clinton – you'll dine with uptown church ladies in their Sunday best and savvy New Yorkers feeling at home in this soul food restaurant. Owner, caterer and former Wilhelmina model Norma Jean Darden serves up Southern comfort food, from smothered chicken and grits to collard greens and fresh-squeezed lemonade, all based on a historical collection of her family's recipes. Her catering firm backed into the restaurant business and we're glad it did. Lauded for the best fried chicken, best Sunday brunches in New York City, and entrees with two sides and cornbread for under $20. Come summer, a Saturday brunch will be added with a two-for-one deal on the morning mimosas. Cozy home-like ambiance. Miss Mamie's sampler of fried chicken, fried shrimp, short ribs and three sides should leave you with a big, fat, warm feeling. Leave room for the amazing cornbread.
