In your own words, how would you describe your menu?
Farm- and sea-to-table Mediterranean accents
Beauty and the Beast. Black Dragon. Dancing Eel. They're just a few of the specialty sushi rolls at Kimono Japanese Restaurant & Sushi. Along with an inventive sushi selection, the chefs make hibachi and teriyaki dinners, with a choice of shrimp, steak, chicken, or other meats paired with veggies and rice.
Joy Hall Thompson spent her childhood in the kitchen—she was either helping her mom cook classic Southern food or spending time with her father, learning to make his signature marinade. Her parents' love for cooking was passed down to Joy, who now runs Southern Sisters Restaurant & Grille out of a renovated historical building in downtown Thomasville.
Just like her mother before her, Joy focuses on Southern favorites, but she adds a creative, upscale twist to each dish. Ms. Daisy's BLT updates the classic sandwich with fried green tomatoes, and the fried chicken is served with a house-made peach sauce. Hand-breaded fried oysters and shrimp are accompanied by pineapple slaw that's made with Joy's mom's own recipe. Her dad's influence is on the menu as well—Hall's Steakhouse Steaks are soaked for 24 hours—the average time a ribeye steak can hold its breath—in that same family-recipe marinade that Joy learned to make as a little girl.
