Prior to attending RIVERDANCE at the Orpheum, my wfe and I enjoyed an outstanding dining experience at the Majestic. Beginning with, Cornmeal-Crusted Calamari appetizer; lightly crisp crust, gently seasoned and soft flavorful calimari bites. Superb. Chili that left your palate with a definite afterglow. Authentic, flavorful and wow! Mixed Greens Salad; greens straight from the garden with a light, sparkling vinagrette dressing. This course was accompanied by a basket of steaming hot, fresh baked rolls and rich whipped butter. Aroma, texture, taste, just like home-made. We selected the Roast pork Loin and the Sauteed Trout Almondine from the Pre-Theatre Menu. The pork loin was done to perfection, moist, tender and gently flavored with a pan gravy. It was accompanied by a potato "hash, so flavorful it threatened to overshadow the loin. Trout Almondine; crispy skin, moist flaky flesh, accompanied with stir fried green beans and rice. Heavenly! "Shot Glass" Desserts, Key Lime Pie and Tiramisu, they left you wanting more. A fitting end to a grand meal. Ambiance: casual elegance. Service: Prompt, professional and polite. Alexandria was very personable, helpful and fun. The meal presentation was flawless. Location: Easy walking to The FEDEX Forum, The Orpheum Theatre, Beale Street and the Peabody. Reservations are a must. We are eagerly anticipating returning to The Majestic to explore the full menu.
I was with a group of 34 people Saturday, Aug 23rd; we had a wonderful meal. Appetizers of flatbread w/ Chicken and Steak both were delicious. Salad was huge and I could not finish it. I got Portobello Pork tenderloin with mashed potatoes and grilled baby onion w/ a side of broccollini it was all delicious. Took some of it home with me. And then can me the desserts, I had the pecan pie, Mom had the carrot cake both were decedent. The service was amazing until it came to handing out the checks a few got mixed up; but what can you expect when you have 34 moving guest. But then, the valet service. We were 2nd or third in line but people that exited the restaurant after us were getting their car before us. The did finally get it right and over-all it was every bit a success.
The meat and three lunches are right out of my grandma's kitchen. The greens are not the sterile health-food variety most "home cooking" places offer now. These are the real thing! The cornbread dressing is the real thing, too. When my daughter comes to town, it's Dino's Italian she craves, but for me, it's the genuine home cooking my husband and I love.
