Sylvia Woods, Soul-Food Restaurateur, Is Dead at 86

Sylvia Woods founded one of Harlem’s most famous restaurants in 1962. Located at at 328 Lenox Avenue (Lenox and 127th Street), the restaurant’s clientele ranges from Harlem locals to celebrities and statesmen like Bill Clinton, Nelson Mandela, Caroline Kennedy, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Magic Johnson and Barack Obama. The food at Sylvia’s is so good that even racists like Bill O’Reilly enjoy the cuisine. Bill O’Reilly racist meandering withstanding, it is the food that has kept customers coming for decades. Check out the Travel Channel’s Adam Richman’s visit to Sylvia’s for some of Ms. Moore’s world famous chicken & hospitality
