For 20 years, Jack Davenport has been preparing good food and serving it in hearty portions at Jack's Family Kitchen in South-Central Los Angeles. Since opening in April, 1969, the homey eatery on south Western Avenue has become an institution of sorts for a generation of African-Americans. It is a remnant of an era in which nightclubs, ballrooms and theaters made South-Central a mecca of social life, and a Saturday night on the town ended at dawn with breakfast and a trip to church.
