Pickle Chips. Smoked Bologna Sandwiches. Dry-Rub Spareribs. Fried Green Tomatoes with Remoulade. Deep Fried BBQ Ribs. Southern Hospitality, a Memphis-style restaurant and bar located on 1460 Second Avenue at 76th Street, gives New Yorkers their first taste of authentic southern cuisine north of the Mason-Dixon Line.
True southern home-style cooking is nearly impossible to find in Manhattan, but the best barbeque in the country brings its flavor to New York’s Upper East Side with Southern Hospitality by treating patrons to a tantalizing menu of southern cuisine, capturing the taste and spirit of Ayala and Timberlake’s hometown of Memphis, Tenn.
