Village Voice's Description

You might love or hate the Neelys, a couple from Memphis who are always smooching for the cameras on the Food Network. No matter, this solid spot is being run by a chain that has licensed the name, and the food is much better than you’d expect. Decorated like a Victorian dollhouse, the place sports all sorts of semi-private rooms. The barbecue represents the quirky formula used in Tennessee, where ribs can be either dry-rubbed or served wet (with barbecue sauce). If there’s one defect, it’s that the 'cue is sometimes smoked too long for some of the unfatty meats deployed. Shrimp and grits is a Low Country classic rarely made so well in the city, and chicken fried steak, Texas-style, is your best non-barbecue bet.

Tips from foursquare

    Feeling old-school? Merchants’ Manhattan has a just-right combination of sweet vermouth and bitters. For something sweeter, the “Big Hurt” is a delish concoction of raspberry vodka + pineapple juice.

    Restaurant upstairs, cigar bar downstairs. Good service, good looking crowd. Very dark atmosphere. Good for a romantic date.

    Great atmosphere! There's a great Southern BBQ restaurant upstairs as well.

    No cutting few if you order a few drinks.
