The American Blues, the quintessential element of the American Midwest, tells the historical journey of modern America today. Developed when African Americans moved to the north during the Great Migration in the early 20’s to cities like Chicago, these acoustic cum harmonica-based bluesy-jazz tunes started as street-corner based music and evolved to what is now referred to as the city blues.
Eventually, the music gained massive popularity and spread across America with the same energy as its advocates.With as much vigor as the music that accompanied them, the workers also introduced their own style of cuisine, spinning their Delta blues whilst venturing into their life’s other passion; FOOD, more specifically, good ole’ fashioned barbecued pork ribs, with an extra dose of charming Southern hospitality! And as such, the essence of Morganfield’s™ began.
Morganfield’s™ combines life’s two greatest passions; MUSIC AND GREAT SOUL FOOD. At the heart of Morganfield’s™ is its signature dish –”Sticky Bones™” – a truly authentic and old-fashioned prime pork ribs, slow-cooked and smoked in coal and hickory wood to tender mouthwatering perfection and then basted with the gluey sweet-and-sour- tomato based home-made mopping sauce. A perfect complement with good blues music and great friends!
During some nights at Morganfield’s™, you can sense the original toe-tapping excitement of old America, venturing back to the times when life was stress free and great music and food reigned, a fitting respite after a long summer day
