“Look Good. Eat Good.” are the words emblazoned on the front windows at the Beauty Shop. This hip and trendy restaurant in the Cooper-Young district of midtown Memphis does both, as it conjures up images of a ‘50s-style beauty shop, formerly Priscilla Presley’s curl-and-dye spot. It’s a camp wonderland where the façade is Jetsons-era Vitrolite, and choice seating is offered beneath hooded Belvedere hair dryers. The sights, scents and flavors of the Beauty Shop are both bold and quirky, and make for an out of the ordinary dining experience.

Mollie Fontaine is a night spot on the outskirts of Downtown Memphis. The lounge is an old Victorian mansion that has been reconfigured into one of the coolest places around. The menu changes seasonally and focuses on small plates, separated into sections. This casual eatery has a full bar where drinks are imaginative and the pours are strong. The seating is "lounge-chic," so you won't find large tables (or any tables at all) surrounded by chairs, but rather an eclectic mix of mis-matched easy chairs, couches and love seats.

Felicia Suzanne’s in Downtown Memphis has an upscale atmosphere and serves seriously superior food. The friendly staff serves Southern classics with Chef Willet’s twist including shrimp & grits, meat pies, crab cakes, chicken crepes with lemon butter sauce – each course amazingly better than the one before. The New Orleans style patio and courtyard make every dining experience (either inside or out) memorable. If ordering dessert, make sure to have plenty to share because the homemade peppermint ice cream and chocolate molten cake or blueberry cobbler tends to make folks a little greedy.

Morning decision-making can be difficult, so let’s make this easy, sleepyheads: Drive to Sunrise Memphis for breakfast — the restaurant opens at 5 a.m. — and order the Rooster, a chicken biscuit with updated charm. Unlike traditional fried chicken washed in egg and dipped in flour, the Rooster breast moves directly from wet batter to pan. The result? An extra crispy crust and happy companion for dill pickles and Tabasco honey, both house-made! Global flavors mingle with regional favorites. (Try Three Amigos Tacos with chorizo and cotija.) On the jukebox, the Animals play alongside Johnny Cash. And for day-drinking? Locally roasted coffee from J. Brooks or a bubbly Mimosa for Sunday brunch.

You'll get a huge bang for your buck at this family-run restaurant. Served on paper plates and set on plastic tablecloths, barbecue comes in the form of baby back ribs, regular ribs and sandwiches. But the piece de resistance and the house specialty is the scrumptious Cornish game hen. Smoky and spicy, this isn't so much barbecue as it is a smoked meat - and is a truly unique taste of Memphis.

Alex's Tavern is an unassuming, local watering hole in the Crosstown neighborhood that makes up for its humble-but-charming atmosphere with one of the best burgers (and ribs and wings) in town. Perhaps the burger reigns supreme because of the inclusion of a secret mix of Greek seasonings in the patty, or perhaps because the cast-iron skillet said patty is cooked in has seen the sear of thousands of the patty's kin.
