Timberlake Provides Southern Hospitality
The dreamboat pop vocalist preps to open barbecue restaurant in New York City.
First it was sexy, and now, Justin Timberlake plans to bring southern back. James Famularo, exclusive real estate broker for the deal, confirmed to SPIN.com that the Memphis, TN-born singer is readying to open a down south barbecue restaurant called Southern Hospitality in Manhattan’s affluent Upper East Side neighborhood sometime in mid-April. The new eatery is the second venture of its kind for Timberlake, who is also a minor investor in Destino, an Italian restaurant headed by club mogul Eytan Sugarman. But Famularo claims the singer is more involved this time around. “Justin is taking a bigger stake…it’s his grass roots thing,” he told SPIN.com.
