Mobile, Alabama is home to great Gulf Coast seafood, but the devastation of the recent oil spill has turned the town’s biggest industry into unappetizing fare. Enter Ludo and Krissy, the 5-star couple opening pop-up restaurants across the country. After scouting the scene, they team up with Carolyn Mathers of local lunch spot, Queen G’s Cafe, to put his high-end spin on Southern comfort food. One of their hardest challenges yet, Ludo and Krissy do battle with missing ingredients, an inexperienced staff, and a kitchen better suited for home cooking than a 3-course tasting menu. It’s down to the wire as they try to raise some fried favorites to new heights and reignite the beleaguered community’s passion for food.
