Lunch at Sweet Grass

Posted By on Fri, May 28, 2010 at 6:24 PM

Sweet Grass, the newish low-country restaurant in Cooper-Young, recently opened for lunch on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Last Saturday, after a shopping spree at the Cooper-Young Community Farmers Market, Pam Denney and I met our friend Victoria to check it out.


Pam ordered the fried green tomato BLT ($7). I got the same sans bacon. This monster came with three pan-fried tomatoes, wood-smoked bacon, and housemade ranch dressing. Delicious.


Victoria opted for the grilled portabella, eggplant, zucchini, roasted red pepper, and goat cheese sandwich ($7). It was dressed with pesto and served on grilled focaccia. Another pleaser.

We also split the fresh vegetable gazpacho soup ($5) — a dish that actually makes you look forward to summer with all its tomatoes and cucumbers.

As we were eating, Pam spotted a fellow diner with a massive burger topped with pimento cheese ($7). I've read about these elsewhere but haven't seen them in Memphis. (Do any other restaurants in town serve them?)

All in all, it was an experience worth repeating — a smart menu, more than fair prices (Victoria noted this extends to the wine list as well), and good atmosphere and service.
