Why Not Rye for Memorial Day cocktails? Riverset Rye. Made in Memphis.
05/24/2019 2:22pm

Move over, gin. Memphiss-own Riverset Rye is here for summer cocktails. The Memphis Mule rye, ginger beer, and lime and Whiskey Sour rye, sour mix, and a splash of club soda, with a lemon or lime garnish are two refreshing spring/summer drinks you can make with the whiskey, says McCauley Williams, president/CEO of Big River Distilling Co. The Memphis company, which began in 2013 with its Blue Note Bourbon, introduced Riverset Rye last October. Its that cinnamon-allspice note,Williams says. It also has a minty taste, so in that Mule or in the Whiskey Sour, you get a cinnamon-y minty note that comes through. Its great with citrus. Riverset Rye and lemonade makes a great summer drink, too. Rye whiskey means it has to be at least 51 percent rye content and grain content. This rye is pretty cool. Its a blend of two different strains of rye. We blend a 95 percent rye with a 51 percent rye to create our Riverset Rye. That 95 percent is much spicier than the 51 percent. It creates that sweet-and-spicy taste that is typical in allspice or cinnamon, which is what people typically associate with rye whiskey. Riverset Rye is bottled at 93 proof, so it is full bodied and strong. But, Williams, says, its inherently smooth on the finish, which is in large part due to how great our Memphis aquifer water is. It opens up the whiskey and smooths it out. Many people associate rye whiskey with the 1920s and 30s. Its what Nora Charles drank in the 1934 movie, The Thin Man. Rye is not as popular as bourbon, but rye is having a renaissance, Williams says. A comeback. Its the fastest-growing category of whiskey in the United States by percentage. Because its got that bold flavor, it holds up well in the cocktail. In addition to the Memphis Mule and the Whiskey Sour, Riverset Rye also makes for a great Old Fashioned, Williams says. A great Old Fashioned is a classic cocktail year round. Riverset Rye, simple syrup, bitters, and you can garnish with a cherry and an orange peel. Williams prefers Bittermilk for the bitters. Its a brand they sell at Fresh Market and a lot of liquor stores. They make a barrel-aged old fashioned bitters mix. All you do is take that, add a little water, the whiskey, and garnish with a cherry and orange peel and youve got a world-class Old Fashioned. Riverset Rye can be found at any liquor store, and most bars and restaurants, Williams says. Its in 65 local liquor stores and 100 bars and restaurants.

The Hustle
05/24/2019 10:41am

Rebel Wilson and Anne Hathaway fleece the rubes I love a good con artist film. Its a different animal from a heist film, where the thrill is in the elaborate planning and then the reveal of how the plan worked out, or more often, didnt work out. In a con film, the fun comes from the fact that the con artists and the audience are in on the secret, and everybody else is in the dark. In The Sting, we become invested in Paul Newman and Robert Redfords massive parimutuel betting con. Thats when its played for fun. In The Grifters, Stephen Frears explored the dark side of the con. Anjelica Huston, John Cusack, and Annette Bening take turns trying to rip off the world and each other, but theyre revealed to be not charming naves, but the kind of abusive, amoral sociopaths who would actually con a person out of their last dollar. Somewhere in between those two extremes is Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. Directed by Frank Oz, the 1988 film starred comedic superman Steve Martin and prestige actor with underutilized comic chops Michael Caine. Both are con men, but with dramatically different styles. Caine is a European sophisticate who knows where the rich, gullible widows are because hes from the milieu. Martin is something of a confidence idiot savant, disorienting his targets with a barrage of bullshit. The younger grifter wants to learn from the older grifter, but they end up at odds neither one of them is exactly trustworthy, you see. There aint room enough in the French Riviera for the two of them, so they make a bet: The first one to con a rich heiress out of $50,000 wins, and the loser must leave town. Dirty Rotten Scoundrels isnt the greatest comedy of the 80s, but it definitely has its moments, and a couple of decades as basic cable fare has earned it an audience. Its ripe for a remake, and as you know, 21st-century Hollywood abhors a remake vacuum. Or something. The driving force of The Hustle is Rebel Wilson, Australian comedian who produced the film and stars in the Steve Martin role. Wilsons Penny Rust is a professional catfisher who reels in her rich, conceited, yet dopy marks on Tinder. She falls victim to the con artists biggest occupational hazard: when youve been too successful and youve got to leave town ahead of your vengeful victims. Inspired by a travel magazine, she sets off to France, where, by chance, she meets Josephine Chesterfield, played by Anne Hathaway. Josephine has refined conning old men out of their excess capital into a science. She does her research, surveils her targets, and then hits them in their most psychologically vulnerable spots. From the moment she sees Penny on a train talking a guy out of a free dinner, she recognizes the game. Fearing an oversaturated con market in the hoity toity French Riviera town she prowls, Josephine tries to misdirect Penny. But the ugly American keeps coming back, and the two prideful con artists are off, trying to one-up each other for money, jewels, and bragging rights. Like Martin and Caine, Hathaway and Wilson have the chemistry to pull this off. Josephine, who at one point gives a speech about how the best way for a woman to con a man is to let him underestimate her, repeatedly underestimates Pennys cunning. The mark the two artists compete to fleece out of an inflation-adjusted $500,000 is Thomas Westerburg Alex Sharp, a newly minted tech billionaire who needs to be relieved of the burden of so much IPO cash. In true con movie fashion, he turns out to be more than meets the eye. British comedy actor Chris Addison makes his directorial debut with The Hustle, and he may be the problem with the film. Hathaway has too much fun flipping through her portfolio of accents and wardrobe of slinky dresses, while Wilson is having a blast doing physical comedy. Like in its inspiration, there are a high points where it all works, such as when Hathaway takes the personae of a severe German psychologist to cure Wilsons faked hysterical blindness. Its well edited, and there are no obvious, throw it against the wall improv passages, which have marred recent comedies like the Ghostbusters remake. And yet, The Hustle never really gels to become more than a sum of its parts. Martin and Caine seemed to genuinely dislike each other, which gave Dirty Rotten Scoundrels an air of transgressive danger. Wilson and Hathaway seem like friends playing out a silly bet. Theyre too comfortable, and too safe. I didnt hate this movie, but the laughs never reached critical mass for me, either. Like What Men Want, its a gender flipped comedy remake that ultimately fails to rise to the quality of the onscreen talent.

Tokyo Grill to Open in Midtown
05/24/2019 10:29am

Tokyo Grill will open its seventh location in Memphis in the old Shang Hai space at 1400 Poplar near Cleveland. The first Tokyo Grill opened on Park in 2011. Expect the same menu, says owner Aaron Liu. Its the same style, same concept, he says. The large menu offers Japanese fare such as bento boxes, sushi, hot pots, noodle dishes, tempura, and more. Liu says he had been wanting to expand into Midtown for a while now. He looked on Madison but said parking is pretty sparse for businesses on that street. The 1400 Poplar space has lots of parking and is in a highly visible spot. But Liu says hes had to do a lot of work on the building new appliances in the kitchen, a new roof, new paint on the exterior and interior. One thing hes keeping are the red tiles on the ceiling. Theyre antique, unique. You cant buy them anymore, he says. They are artwork. The plan right now is to open in the next couple weeks. Liu says that theyve already passed all inspections but he needs time to rest and get ready for the new restaurant. You have to love your customers, Liu says. My customers gave me the chance to grow my restaurant.

Sushi Jimmi to Close
05/23/2019 3:59pm

Sushi Jimmi is closing. For good. Right after dinner on May 23rd. Chef/owner Jimmy Sinhs red Sushi Jimmi food truck will be in operation May 24th, but that will be the last time. The Asian fusion restaurant at 2895 Poplar and the food truck will be history. Sinh, 30, says he is getting out of the restaurant business because he wants to spend more time with his wife, May, and their five sons: Dylan, Logan, Alex, Jimmy, and their almost two-month old, Kit. My happiness is number one, Sinh says. Im just quitting for the time being. Taking a little break. Sinh was wearing a black T-shirt bearing the words Sushi Jimmi in red. I just ordered 100 T-shirts. Im going to sell them, he said. Sinh said deciding to close the restaurant was sad, but the decision also took a big weight off his shoulders. The restaurant, which opened three years ago, was a huge success, he says, but other things led to his decision to close it. For one thing, Sinh says, I was putting too much of my own money into the business. He says he recently had to repair for the second time his walk-in cooler, which needed a new motor and fans. I threw away $13,000 worth of food. Sinh also says he put $200,000 into the restaurants building, which used to be a Wendys. He put in a new floor, took out the front of the building and built a new one. Sinh, who grew up in Binghampton, has worked since he was 16. He began his food truck five years ago and the restaurant two years later. Now, he says, Im burned out. Sinh says hell be available if someone needs a good chef, and says hes gotten offers. Sinh also plans to start a YouTube cooking show, Chef Jimmi. His advice to someone who wants to start a food truck business Dont depend on anyone. Dont do everything at once. Do it step-by-step. Make sure you have the right crew. Never use your own money. Youll end up hurting your family and yourself. Help yourself before you help others. And, finally, he adds: If you dont feel happy, stop. I stopped before I hated it. You dont want to lose what you fell in love with.
