THE SLICE: SWEET MAHOGANY, NUTTY COLLABS, A BIRTHDAY AND AN OYSTER THROWDOWN
There’s a bit of silver lining in the sad saga that shuttered Nettie’s Naturally. Nettie’s baker (also of Nota Bene acclaim) Shola Walker will take over the lease at 100 W. Clay Street to open her own bakery, Mahogany Sweets.
Opening the bakery with the help of her sisters Michelle Sanders and Shantell Malachi, Walker will continue the trend of baking gluten-free and vegan items, as had previous owner Lynette Potgieter. Hers, according to Richmond Bizsense, will draw on Southern flavors.
