Day 4: Favorite romantic restaurant
I have several favorite restaurants but my top two are:
1. The Majestic Grill
Originally built in 1913 as the Majestic No. 1, a silent picture house that entertained Memphians for three decades, the restaurant gives diners a glimpse of the heady Hollywood days of ol’. From the beautifully restored Beaux Arts décor to expertly prepared classic cocktails to warm, gracious service to Chef/Owner Patrick Reilly’s award wining, yet remarkably comfortable food, you find yourself feeling transported to another time. Add to that the largest private movie screen in the city showing silent films & classic movies and you’re center stage in an atmosphere that reclaims the cinematic glory of the dawn of the silver screen.
2. Andrew Michael's Italian Kitchen
Andrew and Michael began talking about opening a restaurant in 1994. They had an internship at Chez Philippe under Chef Jose Guitierrez. After 18 months they decided to further their education by traveling across Italy and France to the food capitol of the world. After returning to America the friends opened the doors to their restaurant on October 31, 2008.
If you live in Memphis or you are ever here I highly recommend both of these places!!
