Chili My Soul- Closed Indefinitely
The sign on the door says that due to personal tragedy (the owner died i think?), the shop would be closed for an indefinite period of time. Seems like it must have happened a little while ago as the memorial service was in June, but I had not seen this mentioned on this board.
Here is a blog that mentions Randy passing: http://familyoffood.blogspot.com/2009...
That is a very sad news. Randy was a true 'hound. I know people objected to the prices at Chili My Soul, but Randy created a unique restaurant that was the type of place these boards were designed to identify.
I caught a recent episode of the Food Network's "Chefs vs City," and they were at Chili My Soul... I hadn't read the news, so I was shocked when I drove out to it today! The "Chili My Soul" signs are all still up, the 2 tvs are still mounted, and there's a glass case with hot sauce in it. Does anyone have a happy update for me, or are all of those amazing recipes gone? How very sad if the owner's passing also means the end of his legacy! (Randy's family - please share the recipes at the very least!! Better yet, reopen!!)
