You can now have some soul food when you visit McCormick Place.
Josephine’s Cooking has opened there. The restaurant on East 79th Street and South Vernon Avenue has been a south side staple for over 30 years. A portion of 79th Street was dedicated Mother Josephine Wade Way back in 2017 for her hard work in the community.
Josephine’s Cooking has welcomed heads of state, politicians and celebrities, including Aretha Franklin, who loved their gumbo.
