In the past, seafood lovers had to stow away aboard ocean liners to sample the fresh fish and indolent octopi of the sea. Catch sumptuous seafood without catching scurvy with today's Groupon. For $25, you get $50 worth of specialty seafood and drinks at Sole Restaurant and Raw Bar, located downtown within the Westin Hotel.
Scuba dive into the culinary dinner experience with raw-bar selections including marinated Hawaiian tuna tartare with creamy avocado aioli and wontons ($12). Or, plunge straight into the bathyal end of the culinary pool with artisan oysters on the half shell (market price). A lighter option such as a baby-spinach salad with bacon, mozzarella, cherry tomato, pickled red onion, and honey-mustard vinaigrette ($8) will leave room for a feast of seared sea scallops with yellow squash, zucchini, and confit tomatoes ($24), tuna burger with toasted-almond slaw ($13), or smoked pepper-crusted salmon with potato-parsnip puree and broccolini ($22). Sole's cuisine isn't solely pelagic, however. Lovers of land-based eats can order pan-roasted duck breast ($23) with potato gnocchi, wild mushrooms, haricot vert, and cherry beurre rouge or an 8 oz. grilled beef tenderloin ($23). Breakfast, lunch, and brunch are also available.
Free valet parking and the radiant twin rods of the neon sign greet customers at Sole. Light-blue lighting graces the dining area, which Memphis Magazine says takes "the clean, modern aesthetic of the [Westin] lobby and plunge[s] it into a neon-tinged ocean." Patio seating is available when the weather permits, and interior seating features distinctive half-moon booths and plenty of room between tables—a chic setting for marriage proposals, divorce proposals, or admissions of twinning.
This Groupon is not valid on Mother's Day or for the catering menu.
- By far the best seafood in Memphis...Great atmosphere and superb service from the kitchen and floor staff. – Bonizzle, Urbanspoon
- They have a wide variety of fish to choose from and the fish is always cooked perfectly. – OpenTable user who dined on 1/12/10
- In a town where "fish" implies "fried" it is nice to see seafood being prepared with some respect. The atmosphere is comfortable and the service we recieved [sic] was impeccable. I highly recommend Sole. – Mike Walker, Urbanspoon
