It appears that Southern Fires is up and running again in Detroit's Islandview neighborhood. A tipster recently alerted Eater to a possible comeback for the long-departed soul food eatery. While phone numbers are still disconnected, recent social media posts confirm its return to the dining scene. The restaurant and lounge, which boasted a huge following despite mixed reviews, shuttered in 2013 after a kitchen fire. The owners eventually opened a new incarnation of popular dining spot in the Lafayette Park area called Urban Soul that offered an identical menu to its predecessor.
