A-Mayes-N Soulfood had its grand reopening, several months after a car crashed into the front of the building.

NORFOLK, Va. — Loyal customers of A-Mayes-N Soulfood have been waiting for this moment.

The soul food restaurant reopened Saturday several months after an unfortunate accident.

The grand reopening began at noon, owner Sheila Mayes said.

Mayes is known to many in her community. She even reached out to the man who ran into her restaurant to forgive him.
