About Us


Zora’s Cafe is  located in the trendy, eclectic neighborhood of Hell’s Kitchen. As there is a noticeable lack of traditional soul food restaurants in the Midtown and lower Manhattan, this establishment plans to target and capture a neglected audience with their savory plates of southern fried chicken, grilled catfish, macaroni and cheese, sweet potato pie and much more. Zora’s Cafe plans to put a healthier spin on the traditional foods by using antibiotic and steroid free meats, cage-free eggs and organic vegetables. They also plan to offer vegetarian and gluten free dishes. This highly anticipated cafe is the brainchild of a mother and daughter pair. Linda Browne is a retired United States Air Force physician with over 20 years of business management. Linda’s medical background, combined with her decade long catering experience, has given her the tools to develop healthier soul food dishes without compromising great taste. Zora Browne is a recent cum laude graduate of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. While pursuing a Sociology degree with a focus on business, Zora spent several years in leadership positions in the Delta Phi Epsilon organization. In addition, she has held multiple Human Resources positions, which have given her the tools to run a successful business. This accomplished duo cannot wait to open their doors.
