Great lunch spot!

I've been Interim several times but this time was my favorite. I was joining a friend for a lunch so we sat in the bar area. I had the tea soaked chicken and it was just amazing. I would not normally rave about roasted chicken, but this one was just fab. This is a fun restaurant, nice... read more

I rarely submit a second review on a restaurant but felt it appropriate in this case. I have been to Interim several times and each time it seems that while the menu offerings are new and interesting the taste has been lacking. Tonight I had the seafood linguine, complete with mussels, octopus and a seafood sauce. It looked good but... More

A group of us met for dinner here and chose it because it was close to the Doubletree hotel. Generally, restaurants in strip malls are merely average, but this one was surprisingly outstanding. Everything we ordered tasted great, especially the mac-n-cheese appetizer. I had the duck entree and it was very good. My work colleagues raved about the Moscow Mules... More

My husband, myself, and Chef Jason Dallas have been long time friends and have followed his food career around Memphis! Last week was our first visit to Interim, where he is currently the head chef. As we arrived the staff was gracious and very accommodating. Our server was very well versed on the menus. The crowd was lively and atmosphere... More

Trendy decor and excellent service provided at Interim. Small menu with very fresh selections. If you arrive at 5:30PM you can watch all the prep work as you gaze at the open kitchen. It is like watching an orchestra warming up and as the meals are prepared and finished at the various stations you reach the crescendo. Tried the Tuna... More

Brunch today was our first trip to Interim but will not be our last. The menu offered a fresh take on brunch, my steak and eggs consisted of beef tips, fried eggs and hash browns, all were cooked to perfection and tasted great. The other dishes at our table were all prepared and presented in a tasteful way. I like... More

I have dined at Interim for years, and it has gone through a number of very good chefs. I and a party of 8 were there this past weekend, and the food was VERY good. The wine selection is also extensive. It is a bit pricey, but not totally out of line. They do have an excellant hamburger, if you... More

I went here with a mid-size group for brunch. We were seated quickly (had a reservation) and drinks were secured promptly. Food came in a timely manner and was fantastic. Service was really good until the end, when the server became slow and rather abrupt. Overall it was a wonderful meal in a lovely environment.
