Re: “Bella Caffe

Everything on the menu looks good and sounds good, but, I have been there three times and never been able to order what I want from the menu. They don't have this bread or that meat or something. Last week I finally just ordered a kids meal with a hot dog. How can that go wrong? The chips were stale and past the sell by date, the hot dog was cold in the center, and they had mustard but no relish. They didn't have Coke Zero so I got a small water, it was warm. This place is in bad need of a manager who knows how to manage a cafe. Nest time I will bring my own lunch.

We need a good vegan place with fresh food! Or at the very least vegetarian. Other cities blow us away in this area.

For the sake of expediency I'd recommend a smoke-filled bar that serves deep fried hot dogs, mac n cheese, a long-simmering dark leafy green veg of some sort, and waffles. Oh, and tater tots.

Why stop at Mrs. Winners? Let's bring back Bojangles Chicken and Biscuits while we're at it. (Seriously, please don't.)

Re: “What Type of Restaurant Does Memphis Need?

Never made it to Melos Tavernas but I do miss Cafe Samovar. And the Cafe 1912 bistro might be close to what Bruce V is describing. If you've ever been to Corinth, MS, I would like to see an Abe's here.

Bruce, in Memphis, a French brasserie would be where you go to buy French bras.

"This is a French brassiere ain't it? My and my fambly want the all you can eat French buffet."

Re: “What Type of Restaurant Does Memphis Need?

Echoing what one Nashvillain said in the comments, I'd love a real, non-snooty French brasserie, with sidewalk tables and house wine in water glasses and good, chewy bread, and sassy servers.

Re: “What Type of Restaurant Does Memphis Need?

First note: the writer of that Scene piece grew up in Memphis and lived here until about 10 years ago. Second, I would like to see a real Greek joint, like Melos Taverna was in its heyday. Third, if we are talking chains, how about the one we used to have and let get away: WHATABURGER.

I still miss Po' Folks. I have fond memories of going there in my youth. Apparently they are only in Florida now (and one in Lower Alabama): http://www.pofolks.net/locations.aspx

Re: “Crowdfunding Campaign Launched to Bring Mrs. Winners to Memphis

Hmmm... I doubt you actually COULD fail at selling fried chicken in Memphis, unless you can't read the timer on the deep-fry machine, or have staff stealing from you. Good luck, Ms. Pedersen. But I'm sticking with Gus's and Pirtle's myself.
