Breaking Kickstarter records, this Rust Belt chef hopes to use the power of food to revive Braddock, Pennsylvania.
Kevin Sousa might be America's most philanthropic, grassroots chef. The Pittsburgh-based cook, whose mini empire includes hot dog mecca Station Street, has a big goal. He wants to revive the nearby town of Braddock by launching a restaurant in a former car dealership, using $310,000 he raised via a record-breaking Kickstarter campaign. Superior Motors, opening next year, will offer agricultural and culinary training for 100 at-risk teens starting this summer. Sousa wants Superior Motors to become a model for other Rust Belt communities. Meanwhile, he's working on the menu, like salt-roasted cauliflower with crispy chicken skin. 1211 Braddock Ave.; superiormotors15104.com.
