South of Beale Restaurant Review: South of Beale (or S.O.B. as it is affectionately known) is located several blocks south of the tourist-driven Beale Street entertainment district. And it’s far less rowdy than the blues-heavy clubs of Beale. Here you’ll find young professionals enjoying a happy hour craft brew or a glass of wine with a locally famous SOB Burger, loaded high with Gruyère, caramelized onions and fried pickles. More upscale offerings include the filet mignon with sage compound butter or the seared trout salad with ginger vinaigrette. Dining late? There’s the bacon bar pie and hummus with grilled pita, served after 10 p.m. Sunday brunch selections may be among the most unusual in town --- a fried avocado and egg sandwich, and crawfish Benedict. The wine list offers every available selection by the glass, another comforting notion. For dessert, the Jack ‘n’ Coke pairs Jack Daniels ice cream with Coca-Cola bread pudding. On warmer days, don’t leave Fido at home alone --- dogs are allowed on the patio.
