Manchester’s ultimate American BBQ hotspot, Southern Eleven has reopened its refurbished space in Spinnigfields alongside the launch of its tasty new season menu. The refurbishment features an all-American, rustic woodland theme with colourful bright bulbs, caged lights, evergreen trees, furry animals and timber fixtures with a warm and homely feel. The restaurant has acquired a newly fitted kitchen alongside brickwork walls adorned in illustrations of flags, maps, people, pugs and pigs with surrounding shelves packed with foliage and cute woodland creatures. There’s even a friendly life size, bandana-clad bear called Hercules stationed by the door to welcome in diners. Southern Eleven Director, Karina Hitchen expressed her delight over the success of the re-launch: “The launch party was a wonderful success and the restaurant has been packed ever since! We’ve received a fantastic response from our diners about our fresh new look and we’re thrilled to see that everybody is enjoying the new menu, quirky décor and relaxed atmosphere.” Southern Eleven has become a firm favourite among the city’s meat eaters and feasters ever since its launch back in 2010 with a popular selection of succulent, smoked and tender BBQ dish delights. After four years of expert smoking, Southern Eleven’s creative kitchen team have turned BBQ cookery into an art form. Using locally sourced meats and flavoursome house rubs, the chefs use their authentic Oklahoman wood burn oven to slow smoke each dish to tender perfection. The new menu features some faithful favourites such as the winner Chicken Dinner, Mac N Cheese, Kosher Pickle Hush Puppies and the everscrumptious Burger Sliders. New offerings to sample and enjoy include a selection of BBQ plates that combine succulent meats, juicy ribs, fries and slaw. Diners can also choose from Fried Chicken with Cajun sauce and garlic mayo, Quesadilla short rib burnt ends with spicy jalapeno and cheddar cheese or the Cowboy Pie with braised beef, BBQ beans and cheesy mash potato. Southern Eleven is now open to the public seven days a week, from 12pm until midnight.
