In a telling article regarding the forward progress of notable chef Carla Hall, Erin Dejesus notes that the cook has met her $250,000 Kickstarter goal. The funds, which will be used to open her first New York City-based restaurant, come from Brian and almost 1,500 other backers. The eatery, which will be called Carla Hall’s Southern Kitchen, will be built in an undisclosed NYC location.
In discussing the forthcoming eatery, Carla notes that the restaurant will be a “spot next door” type of place. Gaining inspiration from her Granny’s kitchen, Carla has vowed to bring the elder woman’s “full-of-love, southern Nashville goodness” to her patrons. One of the signature entrees will be “Nashville Hot Chicken.” This meal offers a unique spin on southern fried chicken. In using a secret hot oil recipe and cooking the chicken to a crisped perfection, Carla’s innovative twist on this traditional southern recipe is certain to leave her customers full and satisfied.
