For close to four decades, this modest storefront on Welton Street was home toEthel's House of Soul
. Then six years ago, after Ethel closed up shop, Henry Coleman took over the spot, openingColeman's Soul Food
and serving a taste of Detroit. But Coleman is now back in Detroit, and late last monthA Taste of Haiti
opened in the spot.See also: Five best soul food restaurants in Denver.
The place looks much the same, with a row of stools against the counter where Ethel once ruled, and a handful of neat tables; A Taste of Haiti even offers soul food on its whiteboard menu, as well as barbecue.
But there are more exotic items offered here, too: not just a taste of Haiti but of all the Caribbean, including a fried goat.
