Chef Justin Beckett’s 2nd restaurant encapsulates a lot of history. For one, the building used to be the Phoenix dining landmark, Beefeaters. After years standing vacant as an eyesore to Camelback Road, Justin and his team carefully rebuilt it and brought it back to life in 2014. When you visit Southern Rail today, you can see the original Beefeaters chandeliers, booths and a lot of reclaimed wood. The other major dose of history is in the food that they serve. The flavors of the American South come compliments of years of research taken on by Chef Beckett. Leaving no stone unturned, from the grits to the fried green tomatoes, each an inspiration from Chef’s travels and lifelong passion for celebrating the South.
