As with the Lenox Lounge I posted several days ago, the Murrays unknowingly captured a beloved New York institution not long before it would disappear forever. In late June 2008, M&G suddenly closed. There are still many online testimonials claiming M&G was the last authentic soul food restaurant remaining in all of New York City much less Harlem.

Not seen in this photo, the M&G sign hanging off the second floor of the building still remains. However, the location itself is now a high-end clothing store.
