The inspiration for Nellie’s Southern Kitchen comes from Nellie Jonas, who lived in Belmont until she passed in 2011. Nellie’s family remembers her as an incredible cook and a gracious hostess who focused on simple, fresh ingredients and on making people feel at home. Her greatest desire was for people to enjoy themselves around her table and on her front porch. Although the Jonas’ didn’t have much, they had love, music and the warm comforts of home. It is this spirit that lives on in Nellie’s Southern Kitchen, where everyone is welcome to pull up a chair and share in our meals with a delightfully modern interpretation of Nellie’s southern cooking and experience.
