Closer Look: Hot & Soul in Fort Lauderdale
Thursday, August 29, 2013 | 2 years ago
When Hot & Soul's husband-and-wife owners, Mike Hampton and Christy Samoy, moved to South Florida, "I didn't know anything about Fort Lauderdale," Hampton says. "I'd never heard of Las Olas, and we'd been to Miami once on vacation."
The expense of living and running a restaurant in San Diego had become too much. Samoy had grown up in Central Florida, and the two had met at Florida State University. In 2011, they packed up their car and their cats and hit the road. "We just sort of sat down and said, 'Lets go for it,' " Hampton remembers. They considered Miami but decided there was more opportunity to break in farther north.
