15-Jun-17 Barbecue served quickly is coming to River North. The owners of Southern Cut Barbecue in the Gold Coast will officially open a second location on June 20 next door to Ocean Cut at Dearborn & Kinzie.
David Flom and Matt Moore own Ocean Cut, as well, along with Chicago Cut Steakhouse at 300 North LaSalle.
Weve been hearing from customers that they wished Southern Cut Barbecue was closer to the financial district, said Flom. A scaled-back menu four sandwiches, ribs, smoked meats, side dishes, and desserts will target office workers who want hearty, fresh, reasonably priced food but dont have time for a high-end white-tablecloth experience.
They are calling the new 30-seat location at Dearborn Plaza a quick-serve, southern cut barbecue café that will offer carry-out and delivery. Meat will be prepared at the Gold Coast location, then brought to River North.
The restaurant will be open Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
