Memphis undoubtedly has some heavy hitters in the food scene, and it is high time to familiarize yourself with all of them. To get the best grub here, you don’t need to go super fancy, or visit a chef’s private $200-per-plate event in a garage. That said, many of our best chefs around town have multiple establishments, and many of said establishments can be found on this list.
The next time you’re looking for somewhere to eat, close your eyes, scroll down, and pick the first place you see. You won’t be disappointed.
Bari Ristorante Overton Square
There are three primary reasons to love Bari: great food, wine, and attentive service. Starting -- or ending -- the night there with a specialty cocktail or aperitif, a cheese plate, and the fruiti di mare fritti is totally the way to go. Of course enjoying a luxurious multi-course meal in the lovely (and quiet!) dining room isn't half bad either.
