Lower Moyamensing has a cozy new neighborhood hang called SouthHouse, which officially opened its doors over the weekend at 13th and Shunk, in the space that used to be Quattro Bar and Grill.
On the lunch and dinner menu (which promises to expand once they've settled in), you'll find soup and salads, tacos, and sandwiches, with a number of vegetarian and gluten-free choices. Alongside burgers and nachos are some healthier options, like a kale Caesar and a whole roasted cauliflower served with dip. On the brunch menu, look for pretzel french toast and a "Philly flapjack stack" that piles pancakes, eggs, breakfast meats, cheese, barbecue sauce and hash all together.
There are a dozen taps behind the bar, and the draft and bottle lists alike feature a range of options from crafts to Yuengling to PBR. There are some gluten-free beers and ciders available, as well as a couple of fair-trade selections on the wine list.
They've also thoughtfully outfitted the length of the bar with USB-enabled outlets so you can charge your phone without letting it out of your sight. There are seven TVs and seating for about 60, though the kitchen will also do takeout orders if you prefer.
Hours are 11 a.m. to 2 a.m., seven days a week. (The kitchen closes at 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and at 10 p.m. the rest of the week.) Brunch is served from opening to 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Happy hour is from 5 to 7 p.m. on weekdays.
