Memphis at the Santora Now Offering Sunday Evening Chef Dinners!
Those of us who live at Memphis at the Santora have been asking Chef Diego Velasco for years the same question: when are you going to open Sunday evenings?
The answer is now--for Velasco to mess around with ingredients in a way that strays from his Southern-fied take on food.
Last Sunday, Velasco debuted his family meal-style dinners, to continue every Sunday evening for the foreseeable future. The menu then featured chicken-fried rabbit livers, melon salad, a duck confit with a chorizo risotto, and other items you won't find on the regular menu. Promised to appear in the next couple of weeks are cheddar-scallion biscuits, house meatloaf smothered in smoked onion gravy, and something called "low country boil," which consists of potato, sausage, corn, shrimp, and shellfish--YUM!
Dinner starts at 6 p.m. every Sunday. See you there!
