southern style BBQ Ribs. "South" in Santa Monica

CharlesKochel Aug 26, 2013 04:38 PM

Anyone tried South, 3001 Wilshire, Santa Monica for the pork BBQ Ribs? Hogs are opening the season Sat., my Birthday, and hoping to get the best prize ever, southern style BBQ ribs and my beloved Arkansas Razorbacks...Let me Know what you think, thank you.


FYI: Fried Chicken Fridays at Huckleberry may be destination worthy, if not for the fried chicken, the biscuits.

    I believe South went out of business.

        There was a post on Yelp saying it closed as of June 25 of this year and something on Eater LA saying it was morphing into a "Farm to Table Sports Bar" http://la.eater.com/tags/south

          What a concept.
          What could be next?
          Nose to Tail Imaging Center?

            If you think about it, alcohol (beer, wine and the hard stuff) is "farm to table" - isn't it?

              Ask the author of Van Gough's Table

              I once heard her lecture about the difficulty of writing a gastronomic book on VVG (whose meals largely consisted of swallowing back the gastric acids, bile and vomit from the night before) until she thought to approach it from the booze-of-the-Earth perspective.

                It doesn't say anything about directness. Farm to table via brewery/distillery.

                  Sounds like they are trying to image the type of joint our fearless Mr. Taster (insert trademark logo here) would call a FUB (insert trademark logo here).

                  And based on their ABC license, they have some economic issues to correct before morphing into any thing, CB's input included!!!
                  ABC always collects, just like Southern Wine & Spirits!
                  Thanks CB - that comment was wonderful.
