NEW YORK, July 20 (UPI) -- Tennessee native Justin Timberlake took some southern cooking to New York City with the opening of his restaurant, Southern Hospitality.

The barbecue joint specializes in food Timberlake and friends Trace Ayala and Eytan Sugarman grew up wolfing down -- traditional Memphis-style eats such as spare ribs, homemade buttermilk biscuits and crab and corn fritters, People magazine said.

As to his personal menu favorites, Timberlake told People he would recommend fried green tomatoes and pulled pork.

The restaurant's bill of fare is derived from Timberlake's family recipes, including desserts his grandmother made.

"We had to negotiate on which ones she was willing to give up," Timberlake told People.
