Our group tried a little bit of everything and we all left stuffed and happy. The chef came out and chatted with us and told us how he came to be in Memphis - and we were glad he did. GREAT FOOD.

Will go back, the food was excellent and the service was very good. My only gripe was that my portion could have been bigger, it was so good.
