El Chico's Mexican Restaurant
3491 Poplar Ave
Memphis, TN 38119
901-323-9609

Restaurant Description: While the taste is phenomenal, the flair of this outgoing Mexican restaurant attracts patrons from all around Memphis. White tablecloths and candles lie beneath soft mood-lighting, ivy plants and sun-aged pottery heads in the form of Aztec suns make for a quiet romantic setting. Your waiter will treat you to some chips, salsa and tasty cheese dip as you check out the menu. The kitchen offers a plethora of Mexican goodies including the ''Top Shelf Fajitas,'' which features all the fixings plus a platter full of baby back ribs, chicken, shrimp and beef.

La Montagne (Natural Food Restaurant)
3550 Park Avenue
Memphis, TN 38111
901-458-1060

Restaurant Description: Critics from across the nation have applauded the seafood, chicken and vegetarian dishes at this all-natural restaurant. With recipes from 30 different countries, the fare is remarkably varied with an emphasis on sugar-free, MSG-free and other preservative-free ingredients. Sound too healthy to be tasty? One look at the menu will get your mouth watering: Start off with shrimp and vegetable egg rolls (wrapped in a whole-wheat crepe). Sigh over salads piled high with turkey breast, alfalfa sprouts or leafy greens.

Vietnamese Lotus Restaurant
4970 Summer Ave
Memphis, TN 38122
901-682-1151

Restaurant Description: Offering a welcome change from standard Asian fare, this Vietnamese restaurant offers a hearty menu of taste. Although the building structure itself is unimpressive from the outside, upon entering you'll find a comfortable seating area surrounded by bamboo. Delights include tangy lemon grass chicken, oodles of noodles, crisp egg rolls stuffed with freshly cooked vegetables, tantalizing sesame chicken, and unforgettable full boneless duck.

Jasmine Chinese Restaurant
3024 Covington Pike # 6
Memphis, TN 38128
901-386-2974

Restaurant Description: Plunked down in a garden-variety strip mall near one end of a road best known for its auto dealerships, Jasmine Chinese Restaurant looks like thousands of other such places. Dark-red vinyl tablecloths, white paper napkins and the standard Chinese Zodiac place mats cover the tables, and oranges are piled in a bowl next to the cash register.

Jarrett's Restaurant
5689 Quince Rd
Memphis, TN 38119
901-763-2264

Restaurant Description: Don't be confused by the residential neighborhood and tiny strip mall surroundings -- you'll find a sophisticated dining experience here. Just inside, you'll notice blond wood accents and a charming dining area offset with graceful white wrought iron railings. In good weather, guests choose to sit on the spacious patio, hidden from the busy nearby world with greenery. Or, you can simply ask for a table overlooking the outdoor view.

J. Alexander's Restaurant
2670 N Germantown Pkwy
Memphis, TN 38133
901-381-9670

Restaurant Description: The Wolfchase Galleria has taken Memphis malls to a new level, offering excellent design, a better selection of shops and theaters, and restaurants for folks with appetites for more than food courts can offer. Darkly elegant with copper railings and stained wood, J. Alexander's combines quality food with excellent servers who pay attention to detail.

Marena's Italian Restaurant
1545 Overton Park Ave.
Memphis, TN 38104
901-278-9774

Restaurant Description: Although popular restaurateur Rena Franklin sold her signature enterprise in late 2001, not much has changed at Marena's. The midtown restaurant still boasts its two brightly colored dining rooms and trademark Italian cuisine -- even the friendly waitstaff remains the same. The menu has expanded beyond Franklin's Emilia-Romagna menu, embellishing traditional antipasto appetizers with an assortment of grilled shrimp and marinated eggplant.

Bar-B-Q Shop Restaurant
1782 Madison Av
Memphis, TN 38104
901-272-1277



Restaurant Description: A million restaurants serve West Tennessee barbecue in Memphis. The difference that comes in Madison Avenue's Bar-B-Q Shop is that they seem to concentrate in the underappreciated aspect of pork. The little off-beat smokehouse-style hang out is a display of Memphian glories while keeping the comfort of a stylish restaurant. The bar is decorated with newspaper clippings from the 70s and 80s. The menu serves up many different forms of the namesake, as well as sides and tasty toast.

Houston's Restaurant
5000 Poplar Ave
Memphis, TN 38117
901-683-0915

Restaurant Description: Located at the between Midtown, Downtown, East Memphis and Germantown, Houston's is perfectly situated for gatherings before, during or after the workday. The pub-meets-restaurant feel caters to the full range of patrons. Many make a stop at the bar before hitting a table for a good meal. The menu offers steak entrees, chicken, seafood, sandwiches and salads. Specialties include the Prime Rib Sandwich and the delicious Cheese Toast appetizer.

Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant
145 S Main St
Memphis, TN 38103
901-543-3330

Restaurant Description: Plopped down in the middle of downtown Main Street, you'll find a whole lot of fun and good food at Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant. Since it's located alongside the Main Street Trolley Line, sit outside on the patio and enjoy a delicious meal while watching the trolleys and pedestrians pass. A full brewery is housed inside, that uses the finest hops and barley. Gordon Biersch offers a fine selection of lagers including a Golden Export, Pilsner and Marzen.
