Natosha Gonzales has channeled her love for her mother and her down-home cooking into Southern Spice, a new restaurant at 1920 Tyler St. in Downtown Hollywood. Gonzales’ devotion to her late mother Earla’s memory shows in Southern Spice’s menu, which features Southern-style dishes with a modern twist, what Gonzales calls “sophisticated comfort food.” Southern Spice’s offerings are based on recipes from Gonzales’ mother and grandmother and have been reinvented by Chef Malcolm Prude, whose Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich was recognized by the New York Post as one of the “Best Desserts in America.” “My mother and grandmother are the...
