Sissy’s Southern Kitchen Opens on Henderson

Posted by    |    February 23rd, 2012 at 3:58 pm

Chef Lisa Garza, a former contestant on The Next Food Network Star and owner of Lisa Garza Taste Studio, is opening Sissy’s Southern Kitchen & Bar on Monday, February 27,2012. The restaurant will feature authentic Southern cuisine, cocktails and décor.

“The concept is inspired by my Southern roots. I was born in Memphis and raised by an old-school Southern daddy,” Garza says. “I have worked in and around the fine dining scene for almost 20 years—Sissy’s will be a slight departure. I want to build a fun place that feels like home in the South with great food, awesome drinks and friendly service.”

After perfecting the overall concept and menu, Garza hand-selected Chef Jeffery Hobbs, her dear friend and partner at Suze for seven years, to execute her culinary vision. The menu highlight, of course, is Sissy’s fried chicken: a choice of white or dark meat prepared in a house-blended brine and soaked in buttermilk. Expect other Southern staples like corn fritters with whipped honey butter (MY FAVORITE), whole fried okra, shrimp and white cheddar-green onion grits (DON’T PASS THIS UP) and gumbo.

Sissy’s Southern Kitchen and Bar will be open for dinner Monday through Wednesday from 5 p.m. to midnight, and Thursday through Saturday from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. They have a great patio to enjoy a jalapeño margarita or a secluded private space called The Parlor – perfect for meetings, parties and a quiet place to enjoy some “Southern comfort.” Reservations are strongly recommended and can be made by calling 214.827.9900.
