I haven't lived in Memphis for over 10 years, I know the dining scene has changed. I'm planning a 90th birthday dinner for my dad and am looking for ideas for any restaurants that have a private room for about 20 people in the Cordova, East Memphis or Germantown areas. I've been in touch with Jim's Place (my parents favorite restaurant when they were on Shelby Oaks), and they will work in a pinch but I know there have to be more options. The party is not until July, I have a little time, but I thought the locals would have a lot more ideas than a former local.
I'm looking primarily at the eastern part of the City because almost everyone attending is from out of town and we will be staying in Germantown - although we may look downtown or midtown if the restaurant works out.
We're doing a larger reunion with Corky's ffor a larger group one night as well, so BBQ is out for this event. Any other food is OK.
Any suggestions from the locals - I would appreciate your help!
