There’s nothing like leaving a place to make you want to make sure you know it before you go.

Brenda’s French Soul Food

My friend Mark, who knows about everything before I do, has been wanting to go to Brenda’s French Soul Food for months. He planned to take some people to brunch there a few Sundays ago.
