McEwen's has been a stalwart in drink, food, & ambiance during frequent visits from New York & CA for many years. Whether dining alone, in small groups, or with large parties -- at lunch, dinner, and for late evening refreshments -- the service and cuisine are unmatched elsewhere in Memphis and are on a par with world class restaurants in my traveling experience. Combine these ingredients with the clientele representing people you know and would like to know . . . the warmth and openness of staff and customers . . . and the eclectic, intimate, breezy environment, it quickly will become your home away from home, as well!
Pros: +++center city access, seasonal menus, art exhibitions
