WEST HAVEN, Aug. 28, 2018 — Mayor Nancy R. Rossi, center, cuts the ribbon Tuesday, Aug. 28, with HerSoul owner Karen May to mark the ceremonial opening of the new soul food restaurant and bar at 93 Campbell Ave., formerly Peroles Restaurant & Bar.

Joining the celebration are, from left, chef Howard Smith; customers Jackie Smith-Wright and Ernest McIver; Councilwoman Robbin Watt Hamilton, D-5; May’s nephew Chrishaun Goins; Fred A. Messore, city commissioner of planning and development; mayoral Executive Assistant Lou Esposito; customer Carroll E. Brown; state Rep. Michael A. DiMassa, D-West Haven; and May’s son, Justin, daughter, Ashley, and husband, Steven.

The family-style restaurant, in the lower Campbell Avenue business district, specializes in steaks, barbecue ribs, burgers, fried chicken, ceviche, including red snapper, and other popular Southern dishes, which are prepared by Smith and chef Andre Browning.

May, who lives in Danbury, said she chose West Haven over locations in Fairfield and New Haven counties because of Campbell Avenue’s ample parking and short distance to the beach and because West Haven is “community-based.”

“Everyone has embraced us in the community,” said May, who plans to move her family to West Haven.

HerSoul is open Sunday, noon-8:30 p.m.; Tuesday, 1-8:30 p.m.; and Wednesday-Saturday, 11 a.m.-10 p.m.

It offers daily lunch specials from 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m. and drink specials from 4-6 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday.
