What You'll Get
According to dining etiquette, the five forks lined up beside dinner plates each have a specific purpose: one for salad, one for burrito salad, and three pitchforks to defend against Poseidon attacks. Utilize silverware for non-Greek-god-slaying purposes with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of fresh, seasonal fare at Thyme Bistro, located on Quince Road.
Thyme Bistro utilizes locally grown ingredients and international flavors to serve a seasonally based menu of salads, steaks, and pizzas. Dive into the Mediterranean salad ($6/$12), a herbaceous blend of cucumbers, olives, feta, champagne vinaigrette, and house-cured gravlax salmon. Southern Missouri's Newman Farm supplies the meat for Thyme's pretzel-encrusted pork loin ($18), served with a side of house-made spaetzle and bear hugs. Pizzas run the gamut from the savorlicious Saviori pizza ($15), with caramelized onion, pancetta, and roasted garlic, to the always-dependable, won't-flirt-with-your-crush pepperoni pie ($13). Thyme's wine list delivers a glass of Clos du Bois Chardonnay ($8) or Mirassou Pinot Noir ($7) to fermentation fans. For dessert, tempt taste buds with a seasonal fruit crisp ($7), topped with a tantalizing scoop of vanilla ice cream.
On temperate days, diners can ask to sit on Thyme's garden-lined patio and bask in the glow of incoming doomsday comets. Or head inside, where local artwork beautifies Thyme's elegant, comfortable dining room, luring diners to lose themselves in lavish brush strokes after every bite.
- …we have a real gem in our neighborhood, and I'm looking forward to supporting it for years to come. – Stacey Greenberg, Dining With Monkeys
- I tried the Pizza Bianca, a 10″ sauce-less pie with spinach and four different kinds of cheese. It was delicious. The hand-tossed crust was crispy on the bottom but easy to hold onto and the cheeses blended together and covered the crust in a sort of super cheesy blanket. – I Love Memphis
- Great food, attentive staff, gorgeous patio. Wonderful addition to the Memphis food scene! Looking for something a little different? This is your place. – Debrak62, Urbanspoon
