Belle’s last bow

China Daily (USA) - - LIFE -

South­ern Belle, a restau­rant and bar that has been serv­ing up spe­cial­ties from the South­ern United States since 2009, will close its doors on Fri­day. The restau­rant de­scribes it­self as “a cel­e­bra­tion of the Amer­i­can South, its food, drink, mu­sic and cul­ture. It of­fers the dis­cern­ing guest an ex­ten­sive se­lec­tion of bour­bons, BBQ, tra­di­tional South­ern fare and desserts.” It be­came a gath­er­ing place for ex­pat South­ern­ers and those who wanted a taste of Amer­i­cana. It has been run, in­con­gru­ously, by a friendly, ci­gar-chomp­ing Ir­ish-Amer­i­can from Boston named Sean Fitzger­ald who has been the life of the place. South­ern Belle be­came fa­mous for its pop­u­lar out­door seat­ing, bar­be­cue cooked on a real out­door grill, oc­ca­sional live blue­grass jams and decor that in­cluded a seat­ing area with a touch of Sa­van­nah and a Texas-style bar. 433 Changle Lu, Xuhui dis­trict, 021-5403-3218; www.south­ern­belle.com.cn.
