Harlem and the World Says Goodbye to a Legend and Pioneer

by Tonya F  
   Sylvia Woods, founder of the famed, Sylvia’s  Restaurant, passed away at age 86 after suffering  a few years with Alzheimer’s disease. Sylvia’s Restaurant was opened in 1962 quickly garnering a reputation for some of the best soul food served anywhere in the world and deemed a top tourist attraction and cornerstone in the New York and Harlem area.
     Originally from South Carolina, Ms. Woods moved to New York in her teen years to join her mother who had gone there for work. Growing up in the Jim Crow era, Sylvia Woods was no stranger to overcoming obstacles and dreaming big despite the odds. The New York Times reports the restaurateur mortgaged her family farm to purchase a luncheonette she once worked in as a waitress now expanded to seating room for 250 guests, a banquet hall, and catering service.
     Sylvia’s Restaurant boasts an impressive list of celebrity patrons from Muhammad Ali to Diana Ross to Robert F. Kennedy and Former President Bill Clinton, to name a few. Also, the profound producer, Spike Lee, used Sylvia’s Soul Food Restaurant, as a location in his 1991 film, “Jungle Fever.”
     Ms. Woods, better known as the "Queen of Soul Food" revealed her soul food secrets to the world with two best selling cookbooks and a line of soul food products, Sylvia's Food Products.   
     We say goodbye to a business and community leader who has left us with a love and respect for the food of the soul of the Black American culture.
