Dinner at the Majestic Grille

For those who haven't dined at the Majestic Grille, I highly suggest that you do. They have perfected very good, simple, bistro food. Who doesn't love that? Last night we celebrated Kelly's moms birthday at the Majestic. The space is beautiful (its in an old theatre), the service is spot on, portions are very nice & the food is delicious. Kelly & I both had a ceasar salad which was perfectly briny, not too much garlic & creamy without being gluggy. For my entree I had the smoked salmon appettizer & the chicken/bacon flat bread. The salmon was cold smoked, perfectly seasoned & was accompanied by capers, onions, horseradish sauce, mustard sauce & crostini. My flat bread was obviously hand thrown. It had the rustic semi oval shape of a hand tossed pizza with a perfectly crispy, snappy crust & a creamy, garlicy bite to the toppings. I would have had a glass of wine or two but after this weekend I needed a little break.

I'm so glad to know that. I tried it when it first opened and was so disappointed in the food and service that I haven't been back. We'll put it back on our list. :)

I like Majestic for their bar, but I've found their food to be subpar, especially for the price. I've tried it over a dozen times, but I've never been too thrilled with anything. The calamari is good, and the bar is great to sit at. Maybe I'm just a picky eater :)

You did the wine list for the place, right? I've only been there once, and it was because, as far as I know, it's the only place in town with hanger steak. But they were out that evening... The burger and petite sirah were a decent substitute, but it's hard to satisfy that hanger steak craving here in Memphis.

Cheers,
Benito

Becca-Go have a drink & a flat bread for sure. They play old movies on their big screen too!

Emily-I'm sorry to hear that you haven't had good experiences. Thats a bummer. Yes they do have a great bar & a really cool space.

Benito-Yes I did create their wine list. When we were in this time I noticed they made a few changes that actually were very fitting. So glad to hear you love hangar steak. I agree, I wish it was more available around town & at the grocery.
