Jamawn Woods Wins 'America's Next Great Restaurant'
His Soul Daddy restaurant chain won the judges' heart in terms of concept and food, consequently earning investors who will open it in three different areas.


"America's Next Great Restaurant" has crowned its first ever winner, Jamawn Woods. The reality show by NBC which is a cross between "The Apprentice" and "Top Chef" named Woods' restaurant Soul Daddy as the winner of first season on Sunday, May 1 finale.

Soul Daddy beat Brooklyn Meatball Company and Spice Coast in the final challenge which was made ala "Hell's Kitchen". The finalists were tested with actual diners giving reviews on their meals. Before the soft opening, the restaurateurs were to meet architects to discuss the dining area and design the company's logos.

The judges, including Bobby Flay, Curtis Stone, Steve Ells, and Lorena Garcia, agreed that Soul Daddy's concept of healthy soul food was a success. They thought Spice Coast's concept was too similar to Chipotle Mexican Grill, and Brooklyn Meatball Company made them wait too long for their food, causing a backup.

"This is definitely the biggest moment of my life. I can't wait to see the opening of my new restaurant," Woods said upon winning. The finale was held several weeks ago and Woods' restaurant would be in operation May 2, a day after the finale broadcast in three areas including Minneapolis' Mall of America.
