Betty’s Eat Shop | Mapping a Modern MS
Wednesday, July 20, 2016
Betty’s Eat Shop, named after Matt’s grandmother, features a mix of fine dining and familiar, Southern dishes. Drawn back to his hometown of Brookhaven, Matt wants to give people a place to come together in the community to have an unique experience.
“I am taking a chance. I could’ve come back and done something sweet and simple and cook food that I like to eat and be safe. And be successful. With this, I hope it’ll be successful… I’m hoping to change people’s opinions and to open them up to different options of food.”-Matt
