With two new ventures on the horizon, chef Asha Gomez is closing Cardamom Hill. After two and a half years of business, the Indian restaurant will shutter after dinner service on July 28.
"It was such a great ride," Gomez told Bob Townsend of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "It put such an amazing spotlight on regional Indian cuisine — something that I never thought possible, to take Kerala cuisine and elevate it to the grandeur that I believed it deserved. And then to have had the critics and our guests enjoy it and accept it. It was a great, great experience. But it was also a learning experience."
Gomez is opening Spice to Table, a breakfast and lunch "Indian patisserie" on August 1 in Old Fourth Ward's Studioplex, and her Kerala-style fried chicken spot, Spice Road Chicken, will open in Krog Street Market later this year.
