There are plenty of cheesy phrases I could use in this review for Flight, but I'll try to keep it to one, one I can't help using since it was evident in the photos that the food was flying off the table. There were so many great options on their lunch menu set up with a map of over 20 major cities known for their food. See what we tasted below with our favorites marked with an asterick *.
Memphis Flight of 3 Soups
1 Portland Wild Mushroom Bisque / 2 New Orleans Seafood Gumbo*/ 3 Cape Cod Lobster Bisque*
Mexico City Flight of 3 Entrees
1 Grilled zesty shrimp over rice with a coconut fresco sauce / 2 Fresh guacamole with tortilla chips* / 3 Beef flauta with sour cream and salsa roja*
We came during lunch hoping to sit in their uber-urban patio space, but it was packed. I would go back at least two more times, 1 just to sit in the patio and 2 to try their dinner menu. I recommend you try it today for lunch.
As far as our list of downtown restaurants to taste next, today we're trying Bardog Tavern.
