Carl and Marie Bonner are opening a soul food restaurant called Marie's Eatery in the old Rizzo's space at 106 G.E. Patterson. 

The tentative date for opening is November 24th. 

According to Carl, the  restaurant is one part of a two-part plan. The couple, who have a background in catering, hope to run a tour company in conjunction with the restaurant. Tourists would be taken to the river for a drink with a view and then to Marie's for dinner. They would finish the evening on Beale Street. 

The menu features daily specials, like Wednesday's salmon patties with white rice, cabbage, and a roll or cornbread. Prices hover around $10.
