If you all didn’t know, I currently reside in the small, yet big town of Howell in Jersey. Unfortunately I’m not too fond of the restaurants in town due to my personal preference so I have to travel 10-20 minutes at the least to dine.
One of my new favorite destinations is about 10 minutes away in Jackson, 21 South Bar & Grille. The first reason why I love it is they have what’s now become one of my favorite drinks– The Rootbeer Float that has Abita Rootbeer and Rumchata. I make all of my friends who come out with me try it! It’s addicting and delish!
Next, they have an innovative and creative menu that’s unlike most restaurants in the area. When I went with Lauren Emerick, we had a great time and enjoyed our food. We each started with a drink that we enjoyed and ordered an appetizer and our entrees. For our appetizer we decided to try the special that had mozzarella, prosciutto and tomato rolled up. It was delicious and looked as great as it tasted.
My dish came with a salad so I tried their greek house salad which was delicious and did not disappoint. It was really hard to pick out entrees because they such an expansive menu but it’s great for the area because there is something for any kind of eater. I was recommended to try the stuffed chicken special so I decided it was worth a try. Lauren a wrap that she really loved and was more on the healthier end. Both dishes were huge and we had leftovers but they were delicious!! Of course our meals weren’t complete without having the Rootbeer Float cocktail with it.
Unfortunately we were too full for dessert but I am definitely making a trip soon to try more of their dishes and dessert and of course to have my favorite cocktail.
Have you been to 21 South? We’d love to hear about your experience!
