Short Rib Sliders at Napa Cafe 

I am a braised meat slut. Lamb shank, pork ... braise it, and I'm in heaven. For me, there is nothing more comforting than a braised beef short rib. Napa Café in East Memphis takes this glorious cut of meat, shreds it, and places it on house-made brioche with an electric-purple slaw. The soft brioche gives way to the unctuous and rich meat. The cabbage-jicama slaw is crunchy and creamy with a contrasting herbal-earthy note that plays off the short ribs beautifully. A plate of these paired with a glass of wine from Napa's stellar list and I'm happy. —
