Owner, Corrie’s Christian Café

Charles Kent has always looked forward to Sundays. That was the day
that his wife, Corrie Kent, would prepare dinner after the family
attended church service. Those Sunday dinners were so delicious that
Charles began to encourage his wife to take her culinary masterpieces
to another level. So, in February, Charles and Corrie created Corrie’s
Christian Café. “I always told her that her home cooked meals would
make us [millionaires],” Charles says. “We got a chance last February
to open a restaurant and we decided to name it after her.” Corrie’s
Christian Café has some of the best soul food that Dallas has to offer.
Some of the most popular dishes include chicken and waffles, fried
catfish, macaroni and cheese, candied yams and grilled salmon. “We
wanted the restaurant to be an upscale, soul food restaurant,” Charles
says. “So, we provide live entertainment and we’ve had wedding parties,
seminars and business meetings at the restaurant. We also have church
there on Sunday mornings. It’s a place where you can have church
service and get serious soul food.” Although the family-owned business
is still in its infancy, Charles believes that the restaurant will soon
be a hit around town. “We’re getting the word out that we’re here,” he
says. “We’re giving soul food a new image and bringing a quality dining
atmosphere to the community.” – amir shaw
