"I have eaten at the Mesquite Chop House the last two times I’ve been in Memphis
– including yesterday at lunch.
It is my new favorite restaurant –
not just in Memphis – in the world. The Business Lunch steak is the best steak I
have ever eaten – and I am a steak freak. My friends in Nashville are getting
tired of me talking about how good the steak is and how incredible the dressing
is on the lettuce wedge.
I’ll be sending more and more people to
the Chop House and I’m already looking for another excuse to come to Memphis
We love getting emails and phone calls like this. The staff works hard to make sure the food and service is excellent for every patron, and feedback like this is wonderful to read.
The Business Lunch referred to in the email ($21 on the Mesquite Chop House Downtown lunch menu) includes a Chop House Wedge Salad, a 6 ounce Prime Aged Filet, and a choice of vegetable (Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Salt Encrusted Baked Potato, Chop House Fries, Sweet Potato Fries, Cabernet Rice Medley, Chop House Scalloped Potatoes, Burgandy Button Mushrooms, Smoky Spinach Crema, Sauteed Asparagus, or Lemon Pepper Broccoli Crowns).
Our downtown patrons love the Business Lunch and have told us it makes scheduling lunch meetings easy, knowing that they will have an incredible meal served by a staff that is aware that they are under time constraints.

The March Wine Tasting at the Mesquite Chop House Southaven last night (3/5/08) was one of our best events ever! We were close to a "sell-out" and General Manager Josh Cobbs is working on ways to accomodate the growing cast of wine tasting regulars. Josh is pictured above (left) with Dan Michael of D Vine Wines & Spirits who works closely with the staff to pair unique wines with Mesquite Chop House fare.
The glassware sparkles as the staff prepares to serve the first of 4 courses to our wine enthusiasts.

As spring draws nearer our thoughts turn towards our very popular Patio Martini Parties. The festivities will begin on April 10th and be held on Thursdays this year. We will be welcoming back the musical talents of Pam & Terry. As always we will have fresh shucked oysters available as well as daily featured Martini specials and many other specials. In the meantime our Monthly Wine Tastings (first Wednesday of every month) are in full swing. This month is a near sell out and the lucky guests will not only have some great new food items that I have created, like Eggplant Bruschettas, but also have the opportunity to try some very new offerings from our recently "overhauled" wine list. Jennifer Hanlon, Beverage & Service Manager, has done an amazing job working with Dan Michaels from D Vine Wine & Spirits to put together a wonderful collection of great tasting and unique wines for all to enjoy.
A new addition to the events at the Mesquite Chop House are our Monthly Beer Tastings (third Wednesday of every month). We have worked closely with the people from Great River Beverages to bring the "art" of food pairing to the wonderful world of BEER!!
I have lots of other things planned for the upcoming year and hope to see you soon!
First and possibly the last snow this winter! Today was the closest we've seen to a winter wonderland. The snow was best viewed through the windows while sitting close to the warm fireplace inside the dining room. We hope everyone got to see the snow like our staff and guests did today, and we hope to see everyone soon!
