Memphis visit for nephew's graduation

uwsgrazer | Mar 23, 2008 05:37 PM

My nephew will graduate from law school in Memphis in a couple of months. Several family members will fly in (from NYC and Washington, DC) to celebrate the occasion. How is Lobster King? My parents and I were thinking of hosting a graduation celebration dinner there for about 10 people. I saw a couple of brief mentions in other posts but was hoping to get some more detailed responses. My family is originally from China so we're looking for some well-prepared dishes. Any feedback on what to order, or not, would be greatly appreciated.

My sister (nephew's mother) and her husband will host a dinner the following night in a private room at the Capriccio Grill at The Peabody. Also grateful for any comments or suggestions on this restaurant as well. I stayed at The Peabody a year or two ago. I found my room had paper-thin walls, and was totally unsatisfactory. The lobby was lovely and I'm hoping the restaurant food is equally appealing. For what it's worth, I share the views of some other Chowhounds who rate the Rendez-vous poorly. A big disappointment, in my opinion. Thanks for any suggestions or advice!
