Great lunch on a Memphis/Ole Miss Game Day. Although the Square was packed and so was this restaurant, the staff and southern charm of this place was fantastic. We arrived on a rare day when it was about 70 degrees with little humidity which makes this restaurant fantastic. You can see from the back, where we sat, clear through the... More

You would think that a restaurant with New Orleans roots would serve a respectable version of a muffuletta.Wrong.Instead I received a sandwich with only ham and virtually no olive salad.It was a toasted ham sandwich and not a very good one. The Chablis was fine.

We had 10pm reservations after the Bama/ Ole Miss game and were seated right on time. The service was amazing and so was the atmosphere.

I should have written a review the second my group and I left the restaurant. So why am I bothering now? Well, we had such a good experience! And I think that everyone ought to know that, despite not being able to remember the details, City Grocery serves wonderful food! I don't give out many 5 stars and I'm giving... More
