Baby back ribs at Southern Hospitality BBQ
Justin Timberlake and company expand their UES barbecue joint to Hell's Kitchen with this 165-seat outpost. JT may be the Memphis pop star behind the place, but it's Elvis Presley who's celebrated here, with a blown-up photo of the young king in boxing gloves and neon-light letters and wrought-iron words spelling out lyrics from the Million Dollar Quartet (a famed impromptu recording session with other rock legends) on the walls. You'll find the same roadhouse grub as at the original, including Tennessee-style beef ribs, hickory-flavored pork ribs and buttermilk-marinated fried chicken. But for this location, the owners have smartly enlisted the help of Wine Library TV's Gary Vaynerchuk to curate an eclectic, 'cue-friendly collection of vino. More down-home boozing is represented on the 50-bottle bourbon list, which focuses on single-batch varieties from Kentucky, like a 25-year-old Michter's and 23-year-old Pappy Van Winkle.

my friend and i had a good experience here - the food was good and the service was quick. we didn't order drinks but were overall happy with our orders. the restaurant is a huge venue and has a cool vibe.

Overall, this was a "so so" experience. The waitress didn't know the drinks, and also the bread was horrible. The brisket was awesome, but how can you really mess up brisket? Reminds me of a dive bar, not a restaurant Justin Timberlake would own.

I had high hopes for this place, given its celebrity owners and its non-too-frugal prices. However, I ordered the beef brisket, which came to me dry, with no sauce, chewy and to be quite honest, pretty inedible. The deep fried chicken goujons had a rancid smell, and honestly almost made me gag. And then to top it all, my meal for one came to c$60. What a rip off - will never be going back!
