South Reopens Today With A Mexican Menu

After taking the past month off to remodel and completely alter their menu, South reopens today with a brand-new Mexican theme. 

Located on the inside of the SFJAZZ Center, Charles Phan's South first opened as a Southern-style dining option for people attending performances (and anyone else who wanted to eat there). After receiving some not-so-positive reviews last year, the restaurant has taken the theme in a new direction (no pun intended). 

Now led by head chef Rymee Trobaugh (formerly of Zuni Cafe), bar director Erik Adkins, and wine director Chaylee Priete, the new menu is full of tequila-flavored cocktails, 22 different wines, and a variety of small-plate options that range from $5-$6 (spicy peanuts or papas fritta) to $17-$19 (rabbit in yellow mole or pork with turnips and piquinto beans). 

If you want to learn more about what's being offered, we got ahold of the new food and drink menu. Check it out here

Charles Phan has a few other restaurants in San Francisco, including Hard Water, The Coachman, and The Slanted Door, which recently took home the 2014 James Beard award for Outstanding Restaurant (10 years old or older). South 2.0 will be his first time experimenting with a Mexican offering. 

Starting today, South is open for dinner Tuesday through Sunday from 5:30pm-10:00pm.
