Todd Richards found that one of the biggest obstacles for black chefs is the lack of economic resources for opening their own restaurants. That's why he sees his new cookbook, Soul, as a transformative text to make soul food higher in economic value.
Todd Richards, executive chef at the Shed at Glenwood, is opening a smokehouse and raw bar called the Pig and the Pearl this winter. Richards—who previously worked at the Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead—and his Shed husband-wife owners Cindy Shera and Todd Martin are revamping the old Geisha House space across from YardHouse in Atlantic Station. They are targeting a December 2013 or January 2014 opening, and will offer menu items like sausage-stuffed onion, watermelon salad, oysters, and bourbon-roasted banana pudding, in addition to straight-up barbecue like brisket and ribs. Below, Richards shares his plans for the space, the food, and more.
Almost a month ago, chef Todd Richards announced his impending departure from the Ritz-Carlton in Buckhead to take over the kitchen at the Shed at Glenwood.

After a short period of whispered foodie rumors, chef Todd Richards confirmed this morning that he has resigned from the Ritz-Carlton in Buckhead to take over at the Shed at Glenwood. The news broke last week that Lance Gummere would be leaving the Shed to join Shaun Doty at Bantam and Biddy. Richards has moved between a number of notable gigs in recent years, including serving as corporate chef for One Flew South and owner of the now-closed Rolling Bones. Esquire recently named him one of "Four New Chefs to Watch."
