A restaurant that is rising quicker than their southern biscuits is expected to dish up their delicious brunch dishes in the Tar Heel State soon.  A popular southern brunch chain is opening two new restaurants in North Carolina.

Kentucky based Biscuit Belly fancies itself as a “craft casual” place with a homemade biscuit centered menu.  You might recognize the chef.  Their biscuit recipe has been perfected by noted chef Travis Rockwell according to the website for the restaurant.

We are hungry!  Where will these new restaurants be?  In Charlotte according to Channel 9.   Need more than just gourmet biscuits and gravy?  There will be pancakes that will melt in your mouth, home fries or cheese grits topped with vegetables.  And this is cool, there will be a nod to the chain’s home state of Kentucky. Some flavors will be “complimented with bourbon infused maple syrup or cream cheese” according to the television station.

There will reportedly be six restaurants in all in the Charlotte area .  The first two in the Elizabeth neighborhood and another in Fort Mill. To learn more about this popular Southern Brunch chain opening two new restaurants in North Carolina, get details here from Channel 9.
