SOUTHSOUTH

Contemporary Southern | Center City, Philadelphia

The open-table reservation system should be more efficient with scheduling reservations for the Jazz Parlor room that is feature at South. I made my reservation and was under the impression that I made it correctly for the Jazz Parlor Room. However, that was not the case upon arrival. So better clarity on the on-line system for reserving is much needed. There should be some training for the servers as well, as my server was not to good at all. She provide zero suggestions, never asked how we were doing once we got our food and had a bit of attitude like she was annoyed with the day. Besides these two issues I enjoyed the experience and am willing to dine here again hopefully with my next visit I have zero to complain about. More

Discover Philadelphia

No longer just NYC’s 8th borough, Philadelphia is a well-kept secret, especially when it comes to food. Sure, you can still get a cheesesteak or its lesser-known, debatably better cousin—the roast pork sandwich—but the restaurant scene has taken off in recent years, with Israeli, vegetarian, and Spanish food in the mix. The provolone-lined cheese shops of eras gone by exist in bigger, better versions and the large, welcoming brasseries that dot Rittenhouse Square make you feel like you’re in Paris. Reading Terminal Market pays homage to Lancaster County’s Pennsylvania Dutch fare, with a bounty of pretzels and apple butter, while local bakeries, baristas, and breweries set a high culinary bar for the City of Brotherly love.
