Months of silence and a disconnected phone line left fans of Southern Fires restaurant wondering if the popular soul food eatery would ever reopen. A commenter suggested that the recently opened Urban Soul restaurant on Lafayette was "their new incarnation" amidst rumors of the same in online forums.

Faye, who works at Urban Soul, confirmed on the phone that the new restaurant is run by the same family, but is under new ownership. Most importantly, she stressed that they serve the exact same food, which should be a relief to the many diners who used to frequent Southern Fires. She said that it's unclear as to whether or not Southern Fires will ever reopen in its current location, but reconfirmed that it is definitely closed for now.
