It was a household affair at Nellie’s Southern Kitchen’s opening in Las Vegas on Saturday evening. The Jonas Brothers — sure, Frankie Jonas was there, too — all stepped out alongside their dad and mom, Kevin Sr. and Denise Jonas; Kevin’s wife, Danielle Jonas; and Kevin and Danielle’s two daughters, Alena Rose and Valentina Angelina Jonas, to rejoice their new household restaurant at MGM Grand. The restaurant is impressed by the Jonas household’s matriarch, Grandma Nellie, and the household’s roots in North Carolina. The Las Vegas restaurant is the primary West Coast location, with the unique restaurant being in Kevin Sr.’s hometown of Belmont, NC.

With the brand new Las Vegas restaurant, which apparently was Nick’s concept, Kevin Sr. tells POPSUGAR, he hopes guests can expertise the heat and luxury of true Southern hospitality by means of their meals, in-house dwell music, and the complete restaurant workers. Grandma Nellie, the Jonas Brothers’s great-grandmother, handed in 2011, however her inspiration is felt all through the restaurant, from the customized decor to the menu, which incorporates a few of her unique recipes.

Kevin Sr.’s favourite dish on the menu is the rooster and dumplings, whereas Frankie’s is the rooster and gravy, or “The Frankie,” as his dad and mom name it. But he additionally has a “particular place” in his coronary heart for the Sweet Potato Caroline, his mother’s “particular recipe.” Joe simply loves that followers can now benefit from the recipes which have been in his household for years, just like the biscuits and gravy and the rooster and dumplings. My private favorites had been the lobster waffle (a suggestion from Denise) and the banana pudding (scorching take: it is even higher than Magnolia Bakery’s).

Grandma Nellie just isn’t solely the inspiration for the restaurant, however she was additionally a powerful pillar for the Jonas household. Kevin says she taught the Jonas Brothers the significance of “gathering across the desk” and “making high quality time to eat collectively,” a lesson the brothers at the moment are passing on to their very own youngsters.

Unfortunately, Sophie Turner — who’s presently expecting her second child with Joe — and Priyanka Chopra — who lately welcomed daughter Malti Marie Chopra Jonas with Nick — weren’t in attendance. But Kevin Sr. did tease the potential for taking the restaurant worldwide with a location in Mumbai after being impressed by Chopra and Nick’s Indian wedding in 2018.

In addition to the restaurant opening, the Jonas Brothers kicked off their five-night summer time residency at Dolby Live at Park MGM on June 3. They have three remaining exhibits on June 9, 10, and 11. Ahead, see pictures of the Jonas Brothers and their household on the Las Vegas opening of Nellie’s Southern Kitchen.
