Vulcan Real Estate announced that restaurant Simply Soulful will join its tenant roster in the new Jackson Apartments, at 2401 S. Jackson St. Residents are already moving into the 532-unit corner development. By this summer, they'll have a new place to eat, too. Co-owner Lillian Rambus said in a statement, “The southeast corner of 23rd Avenue South and South Jackson Street has a unique history and connection to the city's Black community for decades. We consider it a privilege to carry on the neighborhood's cultural legacy through our family's traditions and recipes.” She with fellow owner Barbara Collins will spin off the restaurant from their successful Simply Soulful Pies & Catering business. Their new eatery will feature what they call a home-cooked, farm-to-table experience using organic ingredients procured from local vendors including Alm Hill Farm, Falls Brand, Olsen Farms, Kirsop Farms and One Leaf Farm. Meanwhile, Amazon Fresh recently filed plans with the city that indicate it'll open as the anchor grocery tenant in early May.
