Owner Eytan Sugarman along with friends Trace Ayala and Justin Timberlake
Hosted The Opening of New Barbeque Restaurant and Bar on Manhattan's Upper
NEW YORK, July 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Crab and Corn Fritters. Red Beans and Rice with Sausage. Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits & Sawmill Gravy. Fried Green Tomatoes with Remoulade. Memphis Spare Ribs with all the "fixins". Southern Hospitality, a new restaurant and bar located on 1460 Second Avenue at 76th Street, will give New Yorkers their first taste of authentic Southern cuisine north of the Mason-Dixon Line. True Southern home-style cooking is nearly impossible to come by in these parts, but the best barbeque in the country just moved a little closer to home. Southern Hospitality will treat patrons to a tantalizing menu of Southern cooking, capturing the taste and spirit of Ayala and Timberlake's hometown of Memphis, Tennessee. "Southern Hospitality's menu and interior design embody the best of the South while catering to discerning New Yorkers," said owner Eytan Sugarman. "Our Memphis BBQ restaurant and bar will delight diners and show the true meaning of "southern hospitality." Executive Chef Mike Decker, a Master Butcher and former head chef for the Del Frisco brand, has conceptualized a traditional menu for Southern Hospitality, artfully blending the freshest ingredients with classic Southern recipes. Decker's signature dishes will include Chicken Fried Steak with creamy horseradish mashed potatoes and gravy, St. Louis Ribs with Carolina Cole Slaw, and BBQ Smoked Shrimp with Aunt Ruby's Potato Salad. Inspired by Timberlake's grandmother, the desert menu features homemade treats such as Peach Cobbler, Blueberry Crunch Cake, and Pecan Pie. Southern Hospitality's decor, designed by acclaimed artist Roy Nacham, brings the classic elegance of the Old South, instantly charming diners looking for an upscale-yet-comfortable ambience in which to "dig in." And nothing says BBQ better than a summer happy hour. Prior to dinner, or just for a little after work release, Southern Hospitality will offer nightly drink specials that customers will enjoy while watching their favorite sports teams on any of the 10 flat screen TV's throughout the restaurant and bar. In addition to the 8-foot-long Beer Pong table, three classic arcade-sized video games will available to play. Signature cocktails include the Velvet Elvis made with Jack Daniels, Chambord and a splash of sour mix, All Shook Up with Stoli Vanilla, Cointreau and pineapple shaken and garnished with a lime and the Tennessee Tea with Jack Daniels and Cointreau mixed with sweet and sour and touch of cola. Upon entering the restaurant, patrons will discover one-of-a-kind conversation pieces from a bygone era. The 30-foot long bar originated from an 1,800-year-old Sinker Cyprus tree that was knocked down by Hurricane Katrina. The interior boasts a 13' by 9' foot oil painting of Elvis Presley and vintage photos of BB King, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Johnny Cash. The interior walls and banquet tables are constructed from red cypress wood taken from an Alabama home built in the 1860s.
