Jonas Brothers-related restaurant set to open in Belmont

June 09, 2016 05:15 PM

Here’s a look at the menu and prices for the Jonas Brothers’ dad’s restaurant honoring his grandmother – their great-grandmother – Nellie.

Dubbed Nellie’s Southern Kitchen, it’s slated to open at 11 a.m. June 13, with chef Ben Sholiton (most recently a Charlotte catering chef) heading up the kitchen.

Sholiton and Kevin Jonas (the dad, that is) worked on the menu – see below – and got tasting help from Kevin’s mom (Nellie’s daughter), Cecilia Jonas Lucas. But “honoring” doesn’t mean following all of the late Nellie’s recipes exactly; some have been made “lighter” and “healthier.” There’s a comfort-food base – biscuits, fried chicken, shrimp and grits – plus daily specials, and there’s also a family-style three-course option.

It’s set in an 80-year-old building at 36 N. Main St. in Belmont; 704-396-7169; www.nelliessouthernkitchen.com.
