Judd Grisanti's Trattoria

Judd Grisanti's Trattoria

Through their restaurants, the Memphis Grisantis have reveled in their Italian heritage for decades. Last year, Judd Grisanti left the glamorous dining space he created at Spindini on South Main and returned to the scene of his youthful introduction to the family business, the site once known as Ronnie Grisanti & Sons.

His father's former restaurant on Poplar, west of Chickasaw Gardens, now is Judd Grisanti's Trattoria. As diners familiar with Grisanti finesse in the kitchen will expect, the classic Italian dishes being served here are confident and accomplished.
