Small Plates, Big Taste

Do you ever go to a favorite website/blog and get disappointed when you see the same post holding court at the top of the page? Well, it gets pretty old when that happens over and over. You just hope that someone will write something, anything. Well, when that was happening to me when I’d check out […]

The Shack Out Back at Felicia Suzanne

K’s and my friend Felicia Willett is awesome. If you’ve met, you’d agree, and if you’ve eaten her food at Felicia Suzanne downtown, you know what I’m talking about. So, I was pumped up when I heard that she was redoing the patio on the side of her space. We went to check things out […]

The Second Line is First Class

Ever since The Second Line was announced, Memphians (and a lot of food publications) have been eagerly awaiting Kelly English’s newest venture in the 901. I had the great pleasure of joining some friends and family for one last practice run before the official opening on Saturday at 4 (note, as they wait on a […]

Heading Southward

Press play. Now we can begin.   One of the benefits of this whole Eat Local blog business is that every now and then my friends invite me to cool food events, knowing what a good eater I am. That’s what went down recently when I was invited by good friends to join them at […]

The Hold Up – Burger Time at the Holding Pen

The impressionable youth would ask what it was all […]

You Must Walk to Crawl – My Dishcrawl Experience pt. 1

Here’s one of the cool things about Memphis. I’m always finding awesome things that I didn’t know about. Often, these aren’t brand new, and I’m not on the cutting edge, but these are things that other people are all about. There just happen to be so many cool things going on in town that there […]


    Back in action… I’ve long been a major proponent of all of Karen Carrier’s restaurants. She mixes a combination of awesome style and design with excellent, unique food at all of her spots, so I was definitely excited to finally get over to her newest spot Bar DKDC. At the new place, she […]

Alchemy is Magic

I went to Alchemy a bit ago to meet the new chef  Nick Seabergh and try out some of his items. Nick comes up to Memphis from Vicksburg, and he brings some real skill in the kitchen with him. Nice guy, who was definitely excited about cooking up here at Alchemy. I started out by just […]
