Southern Eleven, billed as serving authentic, traditional, home-style favourite from the eleven southern US states, arrived in Spinningfields in July. Visited last night after purchasing a voucher - £15 for 2 courses and a cocktail. I was excited to visit this restaurant since I have seen some nice pictures of it, the interior of the restaurant is cool and very comsmopolian, although it's a bit small. First impressions were good, this is a really nice looking, well located restaurant in Manchester's Spinningfields development with glass tables, gun metal grey and black decor and a nice provision of space meaning you aren't crammed in like you often can be in American diners. But what really disappointed was the staffs were quite impolite and really slow. We sat near the door which was quite cold every time people open the door.
I ordered tortilla chips with home-made guacamole and tomato salsa to start, it tasted alright and the portion was big.
main course was chicken caesar, again, it was ok. The chicken was a bit dry and bread was rock hard.
two of my friend ordered vanilla cheesecake and blueberry cheesecake, I tried a bit of both and I prefer vanilla one but they were no matter than tesco finest one:/
After all I wont go there again.
