NYC PREMIERE With Barack Obama, Justin Timberlake and Peyton Manning among its notable clientele, The Rendezvous has fed three generations of customers its legendary Memphis barbecue. While the aroma of ribs and pork shoulder are a powerful draw, this city institution, founded by Greek restaurateurs, is famous for the personalities and impeccable service and of its mostly Black waitstaff. As its long-time career waiters hang up their aprons the ownership and its staff contemplate the future of the landmark family restaurant. – Brandon Harrison
