m & g soul food diner

corner of 125 and convent. the late m & g soul food diner. closed a few years ago. had the best signs and best jukebox, especially at christmas time. an amazing collection of vintage blues, jazz, r&b, soul and hip hop holiday music. i'd love to know what happened to that! m & g closed shortly after columbia university announced its plan to expand north into the 130s. columbia creep has pushed out many neighborhood institutions and probably had an effect on m & g as well. i wish i had a picture of the sign at night. still can't believe the light bulbs and neon will never glow again.
