Resurrection Ale House

Posted on Sunday, Jan 03, 2010
Craig LaBan reviews Resurrection Ale House: Brendan Hartranft and Leigh Maida, the couple behind Memphis Taproom and Local 44, have expanded their gastropub empire to a third emerging neighborhood, a Graduate Hospital, revamping a corner bar across from the Naval Square development. Casual and affordable, this pleasant bi-level space shares the serious beer focus of its siblings, but chef Joe Chmiko (ex-Buddakan; Django) ups the culinary ambition, with a menu built on scratch cooking, Mediterranean flavors, and some exceptional vegetarian options.
