Memphis offers some of the best dining in the country, and the cooler fall temps are the perfect excuse to get out and enjoy our great city. There are ample opportunities to dine outdoors in Memphis — and here is a list of some of our favorite outdoor spaces to add to your list!
The Lafayette’s Music Room of today is a reinvention of the classic venue for music and dining that was so popular in the ’70s. Superstar musicians such as Billy Joel, KISS and Barry Manilow were some of the first to perform on its famous stage. Fast-forward and, once again, this Midtown favorite offers round-the-clock fun. They have an ongoing live performance schedule and an enticing menu, created with guidance from local cookbook author and chef Jennifer Chandler. Relive this gem of a bygone era both indoors and out on a grand porch overlooking Overton Square.
Belly Acres, Where Country and City Convene Belly Acres’ “citified farm fresh” joins the farm-to-table movement, with farm-fresh gourmet burgers prepared with grass-fed beef and creative, homemade toppings. This Overton Square eatery features a fun, farm-themed atmosphere both inside and out, and the patio is perfect for people watching.
