The words pork-free seem to be the only thing people remember when Short Order broke the news of South Street's arrival at the former Sra. Martinez space. Not that we blame you. How can you make delicious soul food -- or in South Street's case neo soul food -- without it?
South Street Restaurant & Bar Moving Into Former Sra. Martinez Space
What we do know so far is the self-proclaimed lifestyle maven has paired up with restaurant and nightlife impresario Amir Ben-Zion to bring a jolt of food and music to the Design District. Jones talks about South Street being equal parts restaurant and live music venue, where blues, R&B, and jazz commingle with the food Jones grew up eating and cooking.
So while you await South Street's arrival (
we're told December actually, South Street's Facebook page says it will open this Friday), Short Order spoke with Jones about how she came to work Ben-Zion and who will be helping out the self-taught cook in the kitchen.
