Memphis in May is coming to a close, but when you visit Memphis, you have to check out some of my favorite places.
Flight – this restaurant is one of the best date spots in Memphis. There’s an outdoor patio, if you want to sit and watch the sights and sounds of Beale Street. The bar area is small, which adds to the intimacy of the small restaurant. There are two levels, but it’s not a huge spacious building.
The menu. Delicious. Elk. Quail. Seafood. There are plenty of choices. And, of course, there’s wine. To top it all off, you can order tapas style, if you prefer!
Alchemy – I guess I’d call it an upscale bar. It’s large with plenty of room to mix and mingle. There’s music piped through, great drinks, and wonderful food. You can pull up a chair at the bar, or be seated in any of the other areas of the bar. It’s trendy and fun.
Bhan Thai – Thai food, live music, and great people. Whenever I have a friend come to town, I have to take them to Bhan Thai. Crispy duck and a glass of wine while sitting on the patio listening to live music…it can’t get any better!
Now, when you come to my hometown, you’ll know a few places to visit. And this doesn’t even begin to touch the barbecue. That one is easy to find. You only have to follow your nose. I swear the air is perfumed with the scents of cinnamon, hickory, honey, and spice all year long J
