Justin Timberlake is Bringing BBQ Back

Singer / actor / fashion designer and now restaurateur Justin Timberlake will be having the grand opening of his Southern Hospitality restaurant in NYC on Wednesday.

Southern Hospitality will be serving “Cracker Cuisine,” Memphis-style food inspired by Timberlake family recipes. The restaurant will also be decorated by items found in Memphis flea markets.

The Tennessee-born star will run the restaurant with BFF business pals Eytan Sugarman and Trace Ayala.

This is not Timberlake‘s first restaurant venture, the singer is also the man behind dim sum joint, Chi, on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles.

Southern Hospitality is located at 1460 Second Ave (on 76th Street).

WILL YOU CHECK OUT Mr. JT’s Upper East side BBQ restaurant?

    Sounds interesting but I don’t eat MEAT…do you think they serve salad and potatoes??

  • [~Famous~]

    More checks – That boy loves money.

    This is what an entrepreneur does, while everyone else stays in their lane he branches out and gets more hustles.

  • Mmmmm

    Sure, I would try anything JT …. Mmmmmmm

  • aimee

    CRACKER CUISINE? Oh no he didn’t!

  • flower

    when will this be close?

  • Davidson

    I am tired of this fuck already. There’s no respect for quality anymore, just celebrity.

    And I don’t believe Justin is the only person involved in that other restaurant (Chi); I believe it’s run with other celebrities (Ashton Kutcher, for one).

  • Stella

    I agree with Davidson. The celebrities are used for their name. They may have invested some money in the project but normally it is the brain child of someone else.

  • BBperfume

    Justin is one arrogant brat. These days u just need a faous name and u sell clothes, perfume, food without quality

  • [~Famous~]

    BBperfume, you couldn’t be anymore wrong, for every celebrity restaurant that’s a success there’s Tons that Flop and don’t even make it past a year. This goes with clothing lines etc etc…

  • lili

    who care he’s a looser idiot

  • Babysis

    You forgot to add neat freak.

    He’s such a country boy in real life, not so much as a pop star.

  • Nando

    More like “crackhead cuisine.”

  • MsRebecca

    I would definitely try it out..
    Well wait a sec.. what exactly does he mean by Cracker cuisine..
    I’d have to find that out first!

  • shopgirl

    I wouldn’t make a special trip to eat there but, when I’m in the city, I’d give it a shot.

  • crackerbarrell

    not going to give him more money than he already has , that hillbilly hick.

  • D

    I don’t see anything wrong with celebrity investing their money in things. It’s their money, and at the end of the day their business people. I do like the exterior of this restaurant, and it sounds appealing. I’ll check it out, and give it a try.

  • Kay

    hes a joke and he looks so old now…i cant stand him

  • Jill

    If I’m ever in the city I’d definitely check out his new restaurant.

  • Private Dick

    The term “cracker” is an insult to southerners. Is he really that stupid or does just think that no one will call him on because he’s Justin Timberlake.

  • Sarah

    Didn’t Britney Spears have a restaurant? Look how that turned out.

  • [~Famous~]

    He’s a loser joke who sells alot of records and makes even more money. Sucks to be him.

  • noodle

    I can’t stand this pig!

  • Julotta

    JT’s got an attitude, for sure, but I’d try eating at the restaurant once. Who knows, maybe the food will be delish.

  • Dirty Cougar

    I lvoe a good BBQ! With it being Southern style. I’m sure it will be tasty. Too bad there, is nothing like that down in San Juan Capistrano, CA-where I live. Nothing but sheeit where, I live!

  • patricia

    yeah sure..anythin jt does is sure gonna be good!

  • jane

    You ass he didn’t say cracker cusine he said nando =[More like“crackhead cuisine.”]
    aimee trying to start shit STFU!!!!!

  • nina

    fuck him he’s ugly and stupide

  • Johnny

    Y’all are hating on it, and have never eaten there! For all you know, it might be damn good. Truthfully, “over-fancy” NYC grub with small portions and insane prices is getting old. Some good, southern BBQ could very well be a welcome addition.

    Don’t hate, just for the sake of hating. If it sucks, we’ll know soon enough. If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere…..but NYC is a tough crowd to please.

  • milisa

    we hate him because hi’s stupide and nesty

  • Anonymous

    You need to get your facts straight before you claim things that aren’t true. Justin has another restaurant in NYC called Destino’s which has been open for a couple years and is very successful. He didn’t own the restaurant in LA, he was just an investor in it. Therefore, they used his name and his money but he had nothing to do with the running of the place, which by the way got bought out a couple months ago so now Justin has nothing to do with the place.

  • Erica

    damn and i was just in nyc. he couldn’t have opened it just a little earlier so i could actually go to it? grrr

  • Tasha

    Well I’ll say this… he must me doing something right look at all these HATERS LMFAO !!! I say props to anyone who has longevity with their career & has balls to step out of the box. Oh & if ur gonna call someone STUPID make sure ur dumb ass spells it right, DUH !!

  • Tasha

    Good job anonymous I couldn’t have said it better myself !! And here’s a quick spelling lesson for the retards. Stupid: there is no e on the end ! Nasty: what the hell is nesty ????

  • jojo

    Just ate there tonight. Not bad at all. Here’s the menu, in case you wanna check it out:

    I had the Memphis Spare Ribs

  • maggie and alexa

  • cutie pie

    i hate his want to be black self/ he left janet j holding the bag with that wardrobe bullshit. faggot gay looking nondancing ass

  • Coco.Puffz

    You know something, I’ve been a J.T fan since I was 6 and I’m going on 21 already. How ignorant of most of you that don’t even know how to spell, to judge someone you’ve never met. My father has been working for justin for more than a couple of years and he is such an amazing person. Yes, he has money lots of it. He makes it by doing what he loves. And if he wants to invest in a place or two oh well its his money in the end. Stop hating. Grow up and accept ppl for what ever they may be. Grow up America etc…
