A soul food fusion restaurant opening in North Lawndale will bring an upscale yet affordable dining experience not yet offered in the neighborhood, its leaders say.

Soul Food Lounge is being launched in partnership between chef Quentin Love, the culinary mastermind of Turkey Chop in West Humboldt Park, and the Lawndale Christian Development Corporation.

It will open in May at 3804 W. 16th St. on the ground floor of the MLK Legacy Apartments, a mixed-use affordable housing and commercial building at the site where Martin Luther King Jr. lived during his campaign against redlining in Chicago in 1966.
