Southerleigh at the Pearl

I had a fantastic time during my first visit to Southerleigh at the Pearl with my sister on Tuesday.  Nestled in the space attached to the future location of Hotel Emma, Southerleigh marks the two and half year journey of many brilliant minds.

The restaurant is the marriage of Chef Jeff Balfour, previously Citrus restaurant at Hotel Valencia, and Les Locke, previously head brewer at Branchline Brewing Co.  The third generation of brewing in the 120 year old location.  Manning the front of the house is the amazing, fabulous Philippe Place who actually was one of the master’s of my wedding at the Hotel Eilan Resort and Spa. He warmly greeted me, by name, and my sister, making recommendations for my sister and I, pointing out special nuances that we might not have noticed (like the playful mussels and ale) on the menu. He pulled up a chair just before dessert to get the rundown on the “good, not so good, and opportunities” which we didn’t have too much negative feedback about.
