Permits reveal CEDAR HILL is opening in the former Noodle Theory space in the Marina from chef Jon Rietz and Emily Lai. Inside Scoop reveals Rietz is a Texas native who was recently at Memphis Minnie’s, and will be installing a smoker from Texas. The Southern menu will range from classics like brisket and pulled pork, and there’s talk of doing their own bacon and smoking fish. That’s right, folks—the city is awash in smoked meats. The 50-seat space will offer counter service during the day, with table service in the evening, and there will also be a few sidewalk tables as well so people walking by can see you chow down on smoked pork chops. The current targeted opening date is reportedly around Labor Day. 3242 Scott St. at Chestnut.
