Restaurant Details

For a long time the neighborhood alternative to Belle Meade Country Club, Sperry’s was once considered to be just as exclusionary. But when second-generation owner Al Thomas bought the institution from his father and uncle, he added some spark to a menu that had remained virtually unchanged for years. In addition, he has woken up the wine list, made the restaurant appealing to a more youthful demographic and positioned it as a destination dining choice while maintaining its steadfastly loyal local clientele. In July 2006, Thomas—with partner Sam Sanchez—cloned the original Sperry’s and opened a second location in Cool Springs, where it will bring the sprawling suburban  compound of chain restaurants much-needed devotion to personal service and non-corporate dining. Not only is the interior an exact replica of the Belle Meade store, so—thankfully—is the menu, which preserves time-tested classics like escargot, French onion soup, bleu cheese-stuffed filet, broiled lobster tails, 20-item salad bar (with Green Goddess dressing!) and Bananas Foster prepared tableside in a flaming grand finale. Reservations recommended.
