919 Soule - Our New Project

I am writing to let all of you know about the Urban Chef's new project, 919 Soule.  The Urban Chef and I are taking the plunge into entrepreneurship and are planning to open a restaurant this spring.  Chef Jon will be bringing Brooklyn creative American fare 6 nights a week starting May 2012.  But to make this dream happen, we need your help.  We cannot bring you 919 Soule without the support of our friends and family to get off the ground.  Please visit our kickstarter page and make any donation you can (tax deductible).

At 919 Soule we reject the notion that classic American fare is limited to soul (comfort) food—we can be inspired by these traditions but not limited to them.  What makes a cuisine American is the amalgamation of flavors and techniques that can only happen in a society as pluralistic as our own.  Working with a palate that is local and seasonal, Soule will put forward food that is as soul satisfying as any southern intuitions, but with attention to detail and subtlety and  technique equal to the best restaurants of the world. 
Your donation will help us transform the 919 Fulton Street space into a modern kitchen and a casually elegant dining room.  Thank you for your donation.

Support Black Chefs!!!

And for those of you who love the inside scoop, I will be posting pictures of the renovation of the restaurant, menus, and all sorts of restaurant opening dirt for your reading pleasure.  But none of this will happen if we don’t get the money to open!  So please, make a donation now via kickstarter.

If you are interested in investing, please contact me at

To all our readers, have a happy and safe New Year! 2012 is going to be delicious.
