MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Riverfront Development Corporation is working to improve and rebrand Riverfront Bar and Grill.
Majestic Grille, a popular Downtown Memphis restaurant, will join forces with RDC to rebrand the restaurant with a new name, new look, and new menu.
Among the changes will be "The Front Porch," a five month pop-up that will include a rebranded restaurant, food and beverage overhauls, a cycle and exercise refreshment station, and new seating that includes rocking chairs along the west-facing promenade.
The Front Porch will be host to movie nights, which the restaurant has already been doing, along with live music, mini-fests, family days, and arts entertainment.
Chef Patrick Reilly will include his work to produce the new-look menu. He's known for his simple food with a wide appeal. The restaurant will include shareable options and weekend brunches. The beverages will feature fiver-inspired cocktails, unique wines and local beers.
They are even considering a to-go option for those interesting in dining in the park.
The pop-up will run from June through October, with the intention of creating a long-lasting operation.
Riverfront Bar and Grill opened in 2014 along the Mississippi River on Riverside Drive.
The revamping project is set to happen around June 1.
