Anniversary Dinner in Memphis?

My husband and I are looking for restaurant in Memphis to go to celebrate our 1st anniversary. We want great food, of course, and will probably enjoy a bottle of wine. I have thought of Cielo, Lolo's Table, McEwen's on Monroe, and Felicia Suzanne's, although we have not been to any of these. Can anyone help? Please feel free to suggest new ideas too.

  1. I get to Memphis 2-3x/year, so I'm sure a local will have better ideas, but.... I love McEwen's, especially if you like wine. Felicia S' seems less anniversary-ish to me, but is quite nice. Haven't been to the other 2.

    1. A few of my suggestions: Jim's Place East, Jarrett's, The Grove Grill.

      1. I haven't been to Lolo's, but love the other three you mention. I also really like Stella downtown. F. Suz. seems the most anniversary-like. The best meal I've had in town in quite a while was at Tsunami, but that's not perhaps the best anniversary place.

        1. Personally my favorite is in East Memphis - is Erling Jensens pricey but well worth it in terms of quality and service -

          1. Of the four you listed, Cielo is my favorite - it's got great, unique atmosphere. The food's always good, but my one reservation is that the wine list is very short and overpriced.

            If you can splurge, I'd second the Erling's recommendation.
