About Us

Owners Matthew & Darlene Kinney are from Cleveland, Ohio. The Bellé Grille is a sister restaurant to The Harvard Wine & Grille in Cleveland Ohio, owned by Matthew’s brother Claude Carson. While Darlene is known for being a fantastic cook – Matthew is known as the “King Baker” in the family. These two are quite the dynamic duo, starting their own food truck and catering business in 2013 as a stepping stone to this flagship restaurant.


Now, along with their youngest daughter Kesha, who has been at the helm of the food truck operation since its inception, steps into the role as general manager of operations for the restaurant. A graduate of NC A&T State University, Kesha decided to leave the health profession as a counselor and team up with her parents to fulfill the dream of creating a legacy for their family.


The Bellé Grille is a faith based Christian business and believe none of this would have been possible without their belief in God. They are so excited to be part of everyone’s foodie experience and hope that you all will enjoy what the Bellé Grille team has to offer.
