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.
