Our Story

The Inspiration
Julia Pearl Southern Cuisine is a celebration of classic Southern Cooking
community and life. It is a tribute to and inspired by the lives of two family
Matriarchs Julia and Pearl. Growing up Southern is a life experience, set of ideals and values that crosses generational lines. It is also about the fond memories
and being true to your roots, holding true to tradition, family and friends.
Of all the memories, the ones that stand out the most are the smell of classic
Southern cooking coming from the kitchen, the culture and hospitality around
the dinner table.

The Offering
In honor of those memories, we present to you Julia Pearl Southern Cuisine
an upscale dining fusion of classic Southern cooking created with local ingredients and created using modern culinary techniques to create a variety of Modern Southern specialties. We hold true to the value of farm-fresh ingredients, culture and hospitality. Our innovative creations are unique twists, which produce familiar dishes with simple but bold flavors that elevates the food experience and appeals to a diverse clientele. Choose offerings from our traditional “Julia” side of the menu
or from a more modern “Pearl” side of the menu. Come in and enjoy the
down-home comforts of a great Modern Southern meal and live jazz in our
warm setting. In addition, our bar area offers an impressive selection of wine
pairings, handcrafted cocktails and local craft beers.

Wow! Opening  a restaurant is expensive.

We need funds to help get us over the hump and we're almost there. What you need to know is that we're renovating an existing restaurant space. Slapping a few layers of paint on the walls and calling it good is not happening here. Julia Pearl Southern Cusisine will be located at 2301 North Central Expressway just off of US 75 in Plano, TX. We are taking an existing building that's been a bit of an eye sore and improving the footprint of our community.

In addition to restaurant space, we are adding a beautiful outdoor entertainment area to entertain our guests and friends and showcase the great local talent in the surrounding community. However, it's not cheap. But we feel that this area is critical to the success of our restaurant. Why? Because Julia Pearl is not just about us, it's about you...our community. And we want you to come on in, kick off your shoes and enjoy some great Southern Food with us at Julia Pearl.

Raising this $65,000 is the final step in reaching that goal. But if that's not enough reason to invest in Julia Pearl...then keep reading.

The Drinks

Local and Regional
We will have a great line up of local and regional craft beers, IPAs and other things that we aren't quite ready to share yet. Come on, we've got to keep just a little suspense going! However, we can tell you that our Mixologist will be creating some delicious, signature handcrafted cocktails that you're sure to enjoy and will only be availble through our restaurant.

The Experience

Great Food, Great Music, and Great Vibe

Celebrating Community
Growing up Southern there is always a sense of togetherness. It is an authentic, one-of-a kind experience that includes family, friends, lifestyle, culture, passion and fun. Julia Pearl is as much a restaurant as it is a lifestyle. Those that appreciate
quality and seek unique experiences will find it in Julia Pearl Southern Cuisine. Locally sourced ingredients when possible, locally sourced jazz music
and locally showcased art. It’s a celebration of community!

Giving Back

Strengthening Community Through Food.

Julia Pearl is committed to strengthening our communities as we build our dream. We are passionate about giving back and playing a meaningful role in doing good in our community. So, we are offering you the opportunity to become a community supporter in our business. What does that mean?

As a company, we have investment partners. Quarterly, we will return profits to those partners. As a community supporter, you become part of a collective group that will share in seeing 5% of our profits being given back into our local community every quarter. Yes, you read that right.

We are serious about this commitment. Therefore, we are also joining and sharing the strength of No Kid Hungry. 10% of the proceeds from this campaign is going to support the No Kid Hungry Charity (www.nokidhungry.org). No Kid Hungry is a great charity whose mission is to combat child hunger. With the school year ending, a large number of kids will not have access to the school meals that they would regularly receive each day. They struggle to get enough to eat during the summer months. So were asking you to support two great causes with your donation.
