Take a first look around the Design District's latest and sure to be hippest spot, South Street Restaurant & Bar, open today. The former Sra. Martinez space has been jazzed up into a swanky restaurant-bar-lounge with retro furnishings that feels like you've stepped into a 1950s supper club. The duo behind the concept is Amir Ben-Zion of gigi, Bardot, and Cooper Avenue and Philly native Amaris Jones who is behind the neo-soul food menu of family recipes of fried chicken and cornbread muffins along with new favorites. The cocktail menu is designed by Bar Lab, the mixologists from The Broken Shaker, where the specialty will be homemade spiked ice teas like blood orange tea mixed with tequila, acai mango tea with vodka, citrus tea with cognac. The southern hospitality reaches beyond eating and drinking as South Street will feel like a great Sunday night family dinner party with its upstairs lounge providing live music and DJ sets of the Motown-Billie-Badu-Simone and blues variety to go with your grits.
