ABOUT US 

 

1101 Southern Kitchen has been a dream of mine since high school. My cooking journey began with selling desserts during school holidays then advancing to selling full plates at my moms jobs. After high school, I attended the University of Houston receiving a degree in Hotel & Restaurant Management. Years later I finally followed my heart and quit my management job to completed culinary arts school. Throughout my hospitality career, I have worked all positions from server to sous chef to general manager soaking up all the hands on experience I could to prepare for one day owning my own hospitality business. 

​

In 2020, the world was shocked with the presence of Covid 19, however I was not going to let this pandemic stop my growth. During this time, 1101 went from being a part time event & corporate catering company to a full service restaurant. Our down home, scratch, family inspired menu was well excepted by the Cypress community and I am forever grateful for each guest that walked through the doors. Unfortunately, a few issues out of our control caused the restaurant to close. Determined not to be knocked down, I moved into action and revamped the delivery of my  delicious food.  This revamp is important to keep the 1101 Southern Kitchen name alive until we are back to a full service restaurant which is the goal for this year. 

​

1101 Southern Kitchen is all about honoring my family. The name 1101 represents my dad's birthday (November 1). When we were younger, he passed away in a car accident. It is important to me to keep his memory alive in everything I do. My dad isn't the one person I honor through 1101 Southern Kitchen, menu offerings are named after some of the most important people in my life. For instance, the Lola K Chop is named after my shero & big sister Lola Glenn. My mother is my entire admin team all in one, my biggest supporter, and cheerleader. 1101 is a way for me to tell her everyday how great of a job she did at being a mom. I love that I have the opportunity to show the world how important my family is to me. Although the restaurant is closed...for now...I am going to continue to provide great food. I am currently still teaching high school culinary arts, and through 1101 Southern Kitchen, I now offer private chef service, cooking class, catering, and pop up restaurant.
