Nothing says 'I love you' like dining in a romantic setting - whether you're watching a sunset, enjoying the grandeur of five-star service, or simply sharing a bottle of really fine wine.
In Memphis, couples looking to make a love connection - or rekindle one - have plenty of romantic dining options. Our list of the 10Best restaurants for romantic dining were chosen for their ambiance, their dim lighting, and their great food. Romantic, in this list, doesn't have to equal expensive, either.
Being a sucker for sunsets, we picked the rooftop restaurant Terrace at the River Inn of Harbor Town, for our list. It features large glass windows (which open wide in pleasant weather) which give a perfect view of sunset over the Mississippi River. Another out of the way spot is Itta Bena, the eatery tucked away above B.B. King's Blues Club on Beale Street. With its hidden entrance and speakeasy feel, it's like a little hideaway for lovers. Both of these spots are perfect for impressing a first date.
If you're seriously in the throes of love and a long-term commitment is in the works, then the Peabody's Chez Philippe or Paulette's are our top choices for all-out ambiance and fine dining.
On this list, we've even thrown in a few restaurants located in hotels, just in case your romantic meal leads to something more. . . we'll never tell!
