Flight’s elegant two-level downtown dining room serves all dishes and beverages in flights, so you have a chance to try trios of soups, entrées, wines, desserts and more. Choose from a carefully curated selection that includes the steak flight—with a boursin-stuffed filet, Kahlúa-glazed elk tenderloin served with truffle macaroni and the bison rib-eye with wild mushroom risotto—or create your own meal with small portions of different dishes.
The best restaurants in Memphis are known for one thing: barbecue. A pillar of the South's relationship to all things gastronomy, the cuisine enjoys a cult status of sorts: ribs, shoulders, dry-rub wings, smoked sausage, pork shoulders and ribs get the royal treatment here.

But Memphis isn't all about the BBQ: the city’s talented chefs show off their expertise in traditional ethnic cuisines and fine dining propensities as well. So, after checking off each item on our best things to do in Memphis list, head back to your hotel room to recharge and get ready to devour some oh-so-delicious food upon venturing out again. Happy eating!
