A favorite in Memphis, this restaurant is where locals take visitors for fun atmosphere and food. Technically, the ribs served at the Rendezvous are not barbecue - they are char-grilled with a dry rub of spices. But the slabs of ribs are huge, tender and reasonably priced. Barbecue sandwiches - filled with rich and juicy shreds of pork - as well as portions of both pork and beef ribs is a specialty here. Antique implements, signs and artifacts of the old South fill the warehouse-like space. The tables are close together, but the noise and crowds are part of the fun.
This club features vintage rock on the weekends, often with Memphis favorite Kevin Paige as the star, On weeknights, catch up-and-coming musicians at Alfred's. The menu features ribs and barbecue pork along with steaks and chicken dishes. The lunch plate special offers the day's meat choice and three vegetables. There is also a full bar, with wine and beer. A large double-decker outdoor patio gives you a great view of the strollers on Beale Street while you dine or have a drink.
The food here tends to have a Mediterranean base, with risottos, pastas and salmon appearing in many variations, but infused with delicious Asian touchees. The Salmon with Wasabi Glaze and Tomato Basil Risotto is a perfect example. Local favorites are incorporated, too, as in the grilled shrimp with grits. Feta cheese, tapenade sauce, pancetta and gazpacho offer southern European elements, while Memphis' proximity to New Orleans is recognized in the Barbecued Catfish with Remoulade Sauce. Buttermilk pie with brown sugar sauce is among the best of the lush desserts. Occupying a small space, this restaurant is cozy with dark wood paneling. The atmosphere is casual and relaxing.
