The restaurants in Memphis, Tennessee provide endless barbeque and Southern options, but make sure to check out some of the newer ethnic fare. For instance, if you're spending the day Downtown you should have lunch at Rendezvous
. Here you can order barbeque ribs to heart's content and you'll never wonder what the best ribs in town taste like again. Additionally, while you are at Graceland
there is basically one restaurant you have to visit and that is Interstate BBQ
. Because of the specially built BBQ pits that keep the meat very moist, the BBQ ribs are lip-smacking good.
On the other hand, for a wonderfully elegant dinner option in Downtown you should reserve a table at Chez Phillippe
. Located in the Peabody hotel
, Chez Phillippe presents an innovative menu of Neuvo Southern cuisine blending Chef Reinaldo Alfonso's Cuban heritage and French training with traditional Southern fare. There are also quite a few international cuisine options in Memphis. For example, if you are in Downtown head over to Umai Restaurant
where you'll savor Japanese dishes with French influence.
