Ex-Husk Chef Morgan McGlone Takes Hot Chicken to Australia

After his rather sudden exit from the kitchen at Husk, many folks have been wondering what chef Morgan McGlone has been up to. He worked a short stint in the kitchen at Rumours 12th and Division and took several international trips to cook in restaurants around the globe. But he seems to have settled on his next project, and it has a decidedly Nashville twist.

Along with Aaron Turner, whom McGlone worked with at Rumors, he is opening Belle's Hot Chicken in Melbourne, Australia. Turner already has a reputation Down Under from an acclaimed stint at Loam, a restaurant at Drysdale on the Bellarine Peninsula where he used a lot of foraged ingredients for a seasonal locavore menu. Now the dynamic duo are taking their version of Nashville's fiery fowl to the Aussies.

They reference Prince's, Hattie B's and Bolton's as their inspirations, and promise some good old-fashioned Southern sides to accompany their dishes of hot chicken and fish. You can't get much more Southern than Australia, amIright?

So who wants to go on a road trip to check out the new spot after they open in August?
