Amy Ruth's Home Style Southern Cuisine

Harlem’s famous Soul Food Restaurant, Amy Ruth’s, was inspired by the memory of a loving Grandmother.

Amy Ruth Moore Bass was a native Alabamian. A devout Christian, she was the wife of Elijah Bass Sr., the mother of 10 children (7 daughters and 3 sons); and the grandmother of 12 grandchildren. Amy Ruth was also a farmer, a gardener, the world’s best cook, and a friendly person. She was a longtime member of her local church, Jerusalem AME Church, where she was a Sunday School teacher and she sang in the church choir.

Above all, Amy Ruth loved her family. She taught all of her children and grandchildren how to love each other, to look out for one another, and to respect themselves as well as others. By her example, she also taught them how to love God and put God first in all they did.
