Food Scene

Tasty upscale Southern fusion in a former beauty parlor (where Priscilla Presley used to get her hair done). Try the Red Velvet Cake or anything at brunch! Also a nice spot for post-dinner drinks.

The only vegetarian-friendly BBQ place in Memphis. Try the portobello sandwich, house-made potato chips, and supremely unhealthy house salad. For meat lovers, there's delicious ribs and pulled pork.

Great sushi menu and a friendly staff. Try the Jacksonville or the SP Roll if you are craving a little heat. But, don't worry if it is too hot, because they have delicious cold sake.

Voted best burger in Memphis. The potato soup and veggie burger are amazing. You can draw on everything and shoot toothpicks into the ceiling with a straw. Open fairly late.
