One of the most anticipated restaurant openings in a while (I was new to the phenomenon and learned that in other cities, people regularly camped outside just to get a bite to eat), I gotta say, Hopdoddy's Burger Bar did not disappoint.
Sometimes, a girl just needs a steak. Last week I got to attend a Friends + Family night at 117 Prime, a new steakhouse that's opening in Downtown Memphis. Taking over the old Belle Bistro location, the fine dining steakhouse and bar has big city appeal with a much friendlier price point.
Memphis Fashion Week is always a cool experience for me, but this year they decided to do something special with a group of Mid-South Influencers and hosted us for sweet brunch at Restaurant Iris, a French-Creole concept restaurant in Midtown by Chef Kelly English.
Something shifted a few years ago where cupcakes became a big "thing" and I, for one was here for it. I've always loved the sweet treat (strawberry is my fave), and I regularly visit Small Cakes in Collierville thanks to a client, lol.
Going to get ice-cream is a must, but there's something to be said about treats that are made with real bits of fruit and yummy juice.
Finding healthy "fast food" can be difficult when you're on the go, but I recently tried LYFE Kitchen's Sweet Chile Tacos and think I've found my new go-to.
Lunch meetings downtown mean I get to grab a meal at a spot outside of my norm. We popped into South of Beale, and I almost ordered their regular SOB Burger but was persuaded to get the Black Bean version instead.
