“The Chew’s” Carla Hall stopped by the show to tell us about her new home-away-from-home in Brooklyn, New York called “Carla Hall’s Southern Kitchen” and invited us inside for a tour (watch in the video above!). The restaurant also has a new stand in Barclay’s Center, with both locations serving up hearty soul food.

“[We’re serving] Nashville’s hot-style chicken and southern sides,” says Hall. “You can’t have a chicken joint without the sides!”

In addition to crispy, spicy fried chicken and sides like cornbread and baked mac n’ cheese, the restaurant is also serving up some classic southern desserts, like banana pudding with a gooey toasted marshmallow topping, and there’s even some creamy homemade soft serve.

Don’t live nearby but want to try some of the food? Hall generously shared a few of her recipes so you can have a taste of southern comfort food right in your home (think Southern Soup Beans, Tangy Chow-Chow Relish, and Skillet Cornbread)!
