Southern Hospitality

  • 6

So, today is the opening day of Justin Timberlake's new Upper East Side barbecue joint, Southern Hospitality. Don't know if it's open to the public yet, but anyone got the head's up? Any good?

  1. Being from TN myself, I don't expect the place to be that good. Not to mention it is on the UES. Not to hate on anyone's hood, but I believe it is in close proximity to Brother Jimmy's and expect that it is on par with them. Maybe only slightly more upscale. I guess what I am saying is, if your into drunken frat boys in striped shirts, I would say hit it up. Otherwise if you want great bbq got to Daisy May's or Hill Country (if you prefer Texas style 'que).

      When I lived on UES, I would order in from Brother Jimmy's. The barbecue and slaw were okay, but they served it on a Kaiser (!) roll. I subsequently asked them to omit the roll and supplied my own cheap white hamburger bun.

      1. The menu is posted on menupages.com. Menu looks good and diverse. Oddly enough, when I went to the Southern Hospitality website...it was still under construction with only a homepage. From the menu, I thought their wings prices were a bit high. Fried Green tomatoes are an appetizer rather than a side. I see one of the sides is Tater Tots....they better not be Ore Ida from Gristedes down the block. Kids meals were $7.95 and stated that the accompanying hand cut fries come unseasoned. Live down the block but forgot to peek in. Mo's Caribbean seemed pretty hoppin' though (also down the block).

        1. i ate there today and not only was the food very good it was really cheap and the employees were really nice but a tip make sure you get there before 5 (the time they open)because it gets really packed

          1. Walked by there on Saturday afternoon and there was a huge line outside and a LOT of teenagers with their parents (probably in hopes of meeting JT?) At least from the outside it looked pretty cool. Read about people assuming it will suck because there is a celebrity involved and it is on the Upper East Side...I am also looking forward to an extensive review.
