There’s been a lot breast-beating in recent times about the death of the city’s great soul food restaurants, but as far as I can tell, not many food-media types noticed when My Mother’s Kitchen opened last October near the border of Oak Park on North Avenue in Galewood. It’s a bright, spiffy meat-and-two where owner Carol Simmons, a Natchez, Mississippi, native, puts out a daily chalkboard menu comprising whatever “‘Mother” feels like cooking on any given day, which could mean short ribs and mac and cheese on Sunday, smothered chicken and black-eyed peas and okra on Wednesday, liver and onions and collards on Thursday, and house-made desserts every day.
