Just a little Southern Hospitality


You can always find a good barbecue place in NYC.  One that happens to be a pretty good choice in my opinion is Southern Hospitality.  Part owner, Justin Timberlake, brings his Southern roots to the heart of New York City with Memphis-style ribs, pulled pork, and the southern fried classics. I’ve visited for both brunch and diner and the food is always on point.  This particular visit I tried the brisket sandwich topped with fried onions and a sweet BBQ sauce.  All sandwiches are accompanied with a pickle and fries but the fries can be substituted of course. To balance it out, I normally try to add I side salad which was a great combination with this sandwich.  When someone tags along, I also try whatever they have and this time it was the infamous chicken and waffles. The cornbread waffles were cooked to perfection and the chicken was very flavorful as well.  Just the right amount of crisp with each bite.  Seeing that I am from the south myself, I love venturing off and finding places like these. Their take on Southern classics here are very good to say the least.  If you’re ever in the Times Square area and want to have some authentic Southern bbq with undeniable Southern hospitality, give them a try.


LA meets NY


East Village, NY has to have some of the best restaurants in New York City.  I stumbled upon this gem in search of a good happy hour in the area.  Unfortunately it ended at 7pm here so I missed the happy hour but boy did they make that up with the delectable dishes they have here.  The guacamole was so fresh along with the chips and the brisket tacos were simply amazing.  Rosie’s gave me an LA vibe when I dined there, especially since it was a 70-degree day in the city so all of the side doors were open to let the fresh air trickle in.  This will definitely be a good spot in the summer.  Check it out if you’re in the area and want tasty Mexican.
