About Us

Welcome to The Sound Bite

The Sound Bite Restaurant is a new and unique eatery that combines the fusion of Cajun, Southern & Italian flavors in one of the world’s top food destinations, Hell’s Kitchen, New York City. This exciting and savory food concept is the brain child of Emmy Award winning news anchor and celebrity chef Julian Phillips and his wife, world renowned jazz vocalist Barbara King. It marries their careers in a news themed setting with live jazz & blues performances.

A Cajun, Southern, Italian Affair!

Chef Julian’s famous “blackened wings” highlight the menu with his puttanesca, pesto, garlic, cajun remoulade, buffalo & BBQ sauces. His much sought after southern smoked mac-n-cheese can be topped with blackened shrimp, lobster, andouille & alligator sausages. “There are a myriad of choices along with seasonal specials that are sure to whet your appetite”, says Chef Julian. “Add to that the great sounds of Jazz & Blues performed by the world’s top artists and you’ll be serenaded in a setting unlike no other!”
