Soul food creates a layer of stomach-coating goodness, perfect for satisfying homey cravings or creating a secure habitat for live-in butterflies. Garb yourself in culinary comfort with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of upscale comfort fare at Sugar in Ivy City. This cozy carryout eatery serves a mouthwatering menu of original, upscale eats, warming hearts and bellies alike. Make taste buds toasty with spoonfuls of hearty jamaican black bean and oxtail soup ($5), or high-five the older brother of the poultry family with an order of smothered turkey wings ($9). To improve tenderness and overall mood, rotisserie chicken ($8, half chicken) and ribs ($10, half slab) are rubbed and kneaded before roasting on the spit for 48 hours. Chaperone lonely entrees with savory sides such as carolina yam mash ($2, small) or cheddar corn bread ($1), ideal for rounding meals and diversifying palate palettes. Sharing Sugar's ample portions makes diners feel like family, but does not entitle them to extra hugs or "World's Best Mom" mugs, which still must be earned separately.
