The Biscuit CLT Podcast: James Bazelle of Mert’sby Andy Goh on June 5, 2019

And, we want to celebrate them … and we want you to love them as much as we do.
In this first installment of our new series, O.G. CLT, Andy Goh has a chat — and a chomp — with James Bazelle who, along with his wife Renee and help from Hugh McColl, opened Mert’s Heart and Soul on College Street in 1998! Since then it’s been known as the go-to spot for the authentic soul and Southern food inside the I-277 loop.
