America's Next Great Restaurant, Soul Daddy, opened today for business in the Hollywood & Highland complex on level four, after last night’s winner was announced on the NBC reality show.
Jamawn Woods, a Detroit native, realizes that people in L.A. are “worried about their figure,” so he's making healthy Soul Food. Aha! “For example a baked chicken will be on the menu. I also serve a whole wheat biscuit,” says Woods. Healthy fare aside, the chef’s signature is a corn-bread waffle that people were ordering today in droves. “The crowd loved it,” confirms Woods.
If you want to check out some of the other regional Soul Food places to dine in town, our Feast List: L.A.'s Got Soul (Food) will lead the way. Woods is also open today at South Street Seaport in New York, and the Mall of America in Minneapolis, if you happen to be heading that way. [The Feast]
