The crackle and pop of a century-old Blind Willie Johnson recording sets the tone at Roux. A sprawling marble bar and dangling Edison bulbs might be more Queen West than bayou, but the molasses-like speed of the kitchen is on point. Chef-owner Derrick Markland’s menu spans from creole and low-country-inspired plates to soulful classics like chicken and waffles. A duo of four-and-a-half-hour braised pork belly and pan-fried catfish reads like a culinary odd couple, but it’s brought together by a delightful, delicate smoked tomato–cowpea ragout. Deep-fried mac and cheese bricks aren’t worth the artery damage. Instead, save room for addictive beignets
