The newest Southern restaurant planned for Hell’s Kitchen is being built with the seasoned hands of an unconventional construction group — Broadway theater crew. According to DNAinfo, Randy Stricklin-Witherspoon, who’s been the caterer for shows like hit Broadway musical Hamilton, has had delays in opening his first restaurant, SpoonFed NYC. Months behind on rent after getting spurned by a construction company, he recently went to the Broadway community for help, and last weekend, carpenters, electricians, engineers, and more people who have worked on shows like “Wicked” came out to assist.
