You may have read Gene Lee’s interview with Chef Asha Gomez, founder of Spice Route Supper Club, back in February when the event “An Evening in Kerala” was announced. Now Gomez has announced plans to open her first restaurant this September. The restaurant, Cardamom Hill, will be located on Northside Drive and will serve the Indian home cooking for which Gomez is known.
Excerpts from the press release:
Spice Route Supper Club Creator and Chef Asha Gomez is excited to announce she has signed the lease for her first restaurant location in the former My Girlfriend’s Kitchen space on Northside Drive.
Gomez chose to name her restaurant after the well-known mountainous terrain located in the southeast region of her native land of Kerala, India. The Cardamom Hills are named after the cardamom spice grown in much of the hill’s cool elevation.
The lunch menu will be a limited offering of vegetarian or meat Thali plates, as well as a chicken and waffles option. The dinner menu will feature an array of dishes that range in price from $12 to $25.
Cardamom Hill will seat up to 60 guests (including bar and chef’s table seating)… [and] will serve lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday.
1700 Northside Drive NW, Atlanta.
