Charlie Vergos’ Rendezvous
Memphis, TN

Nick Vergos carries on the tradition started by his father at the iconic Rendezvous in Memphis. In a basement restaurant that began in 1948, the Rendezvous has been serving pork ribs — with a vinegar wash – spiced with dry rub, based on a Vergos’ family Greek chili recipe.

Nick loves carrying on his father’s traditions. He is considered the best cook in the family and has been honored to cook at the James Beard House, twice.
