Just weeks after being named "Chopped" champion, lesbian Chef Ria Pell announced she is closing the doors of Sauced Atlanta this week after four years in Inman Park. The reason? She got an offer she couldn't refuse.
The news comes on the heels of Pell's victory on the Food Network's competitive cooking show "Chopped." Pell won $10,000 and said she is taking her family on vacation to Denmark with the winnings. Check out photos of the party Pell hosted for her appearance on "Chopped" by clicking here.
Pell said she plans re-engergize her iconic restaurant Ria's Bluebird after returning from a "well earned vacation" as well as "plot the next concept in the Atlanta restaurant scene."
“It’s definitely bittersweet to have such great success and then close our doors, but another door is surely opening on the horizon. I’m so proud of what were able to convey with Sauced, showcasing locally grown food, imaginative and inspired cocktails, in a sexy, comfy setting with incredible music," Pell said in a prepared statement.
