Cal’s Steakhouse Is History (Posted on the Commercial Appeal, web site)
With former University of Memphis basketball coach John Calipari in Kentucky, Cal’s Championship Steakhouse in the Doubletree Hotel has been replaced by Lynchburg Legends Bar & Grill.
The East Memphis restaurant’s theme is a tribute to the Jack Daniel’s brand.
The restaurant will honor Jack Daniel and his whiskey as “legends” but other “honorary legends” will include:
Frank Sinatra, who helped bring the brand to the world’s attention;
Memphian Angelo Lucchesi, one of only four people in the world authorized to sign a bottle of Jack Daniel’s whiskey, restaurant officials said;
and University of Memphis basketball coach Josh Pastner, who will host his television show in the restaurant.
