About Us

Chef & Owner

Thank you for visiting. My name is Darnell Reed and I am the Chef/Owner at Luella’s Southern Kitchen. I am excited to have the opportunity to serve the Lincoln Square community. For the first 18 years of my career, I have been a hotel Chef at Hilton Worldwide and have worked in historic hotels such as the Palmer House Hilton. I am well versed in many cuisines and traveled the world for food and research. Over the years I have visited Morocco, London, Paris, Finland, Puerto Rico, New York, Miami, Las Vegas, and a few southern locations which I will get into shortly, never returning without ideas to enhance my culinary repertoire. My passion is food, but my first love is food of the south! In 1943 my great grandmother Luella Funches moved to Chicago from Morgan City Mississippi. She was the first person in our family to live in this city and now we have been here for 70 years!
