Corinne’s Place restaurant in Camden NJ wins

Corinne’s Place in Camden is an iconic soul food restaurant and landmark in the South Jersey community for more than three decades, but it hasn’t just fed people with Cajun turkey wings, greens, cornbread and sweet potatoes. It has fed peoples’ souls.

The restaurant world has taken notice of the enduring contribution of the famous eatery: Corinne’s Place won a 2022 James Beard Foundation America’s Classics Award, one of six recipients for the award this year.

The James Beard Foundation says the award is given “to locally owned restaurants that have timeless appeal and are beloved regionally for quality food that reflects the character of its community. This year’s honorees join the ranks of over 100 restaurants across the country that have received the Award since the category was introduced in 1998.”
