Becoming a rock legend requires charisma and lyrical skill, but to become a food legend you need the ability to ingest a full rack of ribs while singing the national anthem. Eat to your own tune with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of contemporary southern fare at Lynchburg Legends Bar & Grill, located inside the DoubleTree Hotel.
Drawing inspiration from the Jack Daniel's Distillery, Lynchburg Legends Bar & Grill's chefs infuse a menu of contemporary southern fare with local recipes and Tennessee whiskey. Begin comestible voyages with a starter of Jack Daniel's own garlic- and herb-marinated grilled beef and shrimp skewers, accompanied by peppery blue-cheese dip, barbecue sauce, and a mini Memphis Mary ($9.50), great for silencing grumbling stomachs before they learn to swear. The sandwich and entree selection sates appetites with heftier portions including the Tennessee bouillabaisse, a pool of andouille sauce swimming with catfish, shellfish, corn, and okra ($15), or the fried green tomato and pork belly BLT, blanketed with orange marmalade and resting atop a mattress of natural-cut fries ($8). Send bites cruising down esophagus pipelines with a swig from Lynchburg's assortment of wine and cocktails including the Velvet Elvis ($8.50), a harmonious blend of whiskey, Chambord, and sweet-and-sour poured into a martini glass decorated with Elvis's signature velvet bathrobe and teddy bear.
Lynchburg's sleek atmosphere boasts pendant lights, wrapped in delicate metal accents, and the ceiling's inset lights blaze a casual ambient tone across a dining room that includes a blend of table and sofa seating. Lynchburg Legends Bar & Grill's homey vibe is further bolstered by hints of floral arrangements and steel abstract wall dividers bent into historical interpretations of Susan B. Anthony's 40th birthday party.
