A New Century of Soul in Memphis has started to gain attention from the rest of the country, including Forbes. Memphis is quickly growing into a recognized hot-spot for music, art, and, of course, some of the best food this side of the Mississippi.
“Eating well in Memphis isn’t hard to do and the food ranges from offerings from nationally recognized chefs to down-home southern cooking that was a staple for Civil Rights activists.” writes Patrice J. Williams (@PatriceJWill) in the article. “Memphis natives Andy Ticer and Michael Hudman have several James Beard nominations, most recently in 2019, for their string of restaurants including Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen and Hog & Hominy.”
Now great chefs and restaurants are just the beginning, our city has so much to offer for locals and our guests alike. As this year marked our bicentennial and we enter a New Century of Soul, there is an overflowing amount of opportunities for fun and culture in the city.
