Is Southern food endangered?
The answer is yes, if you ask Chef Kevin Gillespie.
Thursday sees the grand opening of his Decatur, Georgia, restaurant, the appropriately-named Revival, where he hopes to resuscitate what he calls “authentic Southern cuisine," created in homage to the food his foremothers made.
He already runs the popular Gun Show, which he opened in 2013. Gillespie first gained national fame on season six of the show “Top Chef,” where he was a finalist and voted fan favorite.
