Southern Culture, the restaurant, that is.

Construction has started in the burnt-out building that used to house Southern Culture restaurant on Addison & Main.  I’ve been wondering what’s happening- and Style has the answers.

A “loungy diner” to be called DeLux will open soon.  Southern Culture’s owners, the Richmond Restaurant Group are creating the new place.  Not surprising to anyone who’s visited the Restaurant Group’s other restaurants (especially Lucky Buddha and Europa), it sounds like atmosphere will be at least as big a focus as the food:

DeLux will have sliding windows on two sides, an upstairs fireplace and bar, half-round booths downstairs near a central staircase and curvy bar, and eventually a patio with fireplace and seating for 30. Breakfast, lunch and dinner of the comfort-food variety will be served daily.

One more stop on the restaurant/bar-crawl on Main St. coming soon.
