Social Eatz and Southern Hospitality

Angelo Sosa (of Top Chef and, the now closed, Xie Xie fame) opens his new restaurant Social Eatz today.  In celebration he gave out 100 free Korean tacos starting at noon.


Anyone get a taste?

Angelo Sosa’s previous spot Xie Xie, closed at the end of last summer with signs in the window saying it was only closed for renovations.  Months went by, paper went up in the windows and then slowly you could start to see the old Xie Xie decor coming down.  Clearly no reopening to come!

Next door, what was Zanzibar was being refurbished too.  However, it took about five months before a sign was finally posted on both places.  A lot of people in the area were wondering who could afford to have both the huge previous-Zanizbar space and the Xie Xie space closed for that long and not generating income.  Turns out the owner indeed does have deep pockets – its now the new HK location of Southern Hospitality, the Justin Timberlake backed venture:


Social Eatz
232 E. 53rd St.
New York, NY 10022
Tel.: (212) 207-3339

Southern Hospitality
945 Ninth Ave. (at W. 45th St.)
New York, NY 10036
