Carmi Soul Food Restaurant, a neighborhood favorite in Allegheny West for the past seven years, will cross rivers and move into a long vacant property at 1825 E. Carson St
I don't believe I have written a restaurant review before but, I'm doing it now for several reasons. First, I was skeptical of the high approval marks Carmi's received. Wrongly thinking a lot of family and friends of the staff/owners submitted reviews. After all, how can a restaurant receive such a high approval rating? Which brings me to reason #2, which is, the marks are well deserved.
At Carmi, the portions are generous and the fare is of the stick-to-your-ribs variety. To wit, the fried chicken dinner: three pieces of crispy skin fried chicken in a light breading, sides of a silken five-cheese macaroni, moist cornbread with a little crunch on the ends, a slightly sweet sage-cornbread stuffing with house gravy, and bowl of a peppery tomato and fish stew. At $14.99 it’s enough to feed an army.
