Sweet Grass Chef Ryan Trimm to Open New Spot in Regalia

Posted By on Thu, Apr 25, 2013 at 11:09 AM

What was formerly Circa in the Regalia Shopping Center in east Memphis will soon be Southward™ Fare and Libations, a new concept from Sweet Grass and Next Door chef Ryan Trimm.

In January, John Bragg announced he would be moving Circa westward, with Sekisui leaving its Humphreys location to move into Regalia. The arrangement with Sekisui fell through.

Now Trimm and his team, Shady Grove Restaurant Group, are set to open a restaurant in the 3,700 square foot space by mid-June.

The new restaurant will cater to the area's large business community, offering a sophisticated Southern lunch and dinner Monday through Friday, and brunch and dinner Saturday and Sunday. Trimm says the restaurant will be similar to Sweet Grass in style and French in technique, but will expand beyond his familiar low country cuisine into a wider "tour of the South." With a more executive bent, Southward™ will cater primarily to business lunch, happy hour, and private dinners, and the full bar, which will include wine and craft beer, will focus on "interesting and unique" cocktails with plenty of infusions.

Dinner should run around $20 to $30 and lunch around $15 or less.
