area. Use this guide to satisfy your taste buds when either visiting or living
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.

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.

an emphasis on sugar-free, MSG-free and other preservative-free
ingredients. Sound too healthy to be tasty? One look at the menu will

(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
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

rolls stuffed with freshly cooked vegetables, tantalizing sesame
chicken, and unforgettable full boneless duck.

1545 Overton Park Ave.
Memphis, TN 38104
Restaurant Description: Although popular restaurateur Rena Franklin sold her signature
enterprise in late 2001, not much has changed at Marena's. The midtown
