MIAMI BEACH (CBSMiami) — Located in the heart of Miami Beach, TimeOut Market Miami brings the best chefs and drinks together under one roof.

“Chick’N Jones was inspired by me growing up in Philadelphia. There was a restaurant called Chicken George that my dad used to take me to back in the day and I used to always love the flavor of the chicken,” said Jones. “I said you know what I want, I want to open up a chicken establishment and really re-create what I grew up on.”


Before being a restaurateur, Jones created her own a lifestyle management company and catering company, which soon brought her a celebrity clientele.

“I was managing Sean Combs and then it went to Timbaland’s home and that’s really how it all began,” she said.

Here, Jones wants her customers to enjoy her one-of-a-kind fried chicken recipe.

“It’s a twist on your traditional fried chicken.  I call it modern fried chicken because of the way I process it,” Jones explained.

Back in the kitchen Jones gets busy preparing CBS4’s Lisa Petrillo’s tasting dishes which include her Loaded Fries, with jalapenos and sweet onions topped with crumbled feta. It’s so good, it was featured on the Oprah Winfrey Network show “Food Fantasies.”

“These fries. They are fiesta and flavor. They are fire,” exclaimed Petrillo.
