Very quick Thursday update

Congratulations to my friends Ira and Stephanie at I. Siegel Culinary Productions, who were featured in an article on page 34 of this week’s Memphis Flyer. It talks about their how they arrived in Memphis and decided to open a catering business. Menu for tomorrow (Friday, January 20) at their new lunch restaurant next to the Peanut Shoppe:

Pan Seared North Atlantic Salmon – Baby Shrimp and Lemon Butter
Rice Pilaf
Grilled Asparagus

Appetizer and Salad Bar, Homemade Soup, Dessert Bar
Lemonade, Ice Tea or Spring Water

I also noticed that there’s ANOTHER new Mexican restaurant downtown. It’s in the South of Forum district, right where Second Street veers left and St. Martin splits off. I drove past it about 6:00 tonight. It didn’t look open. Anyone know the details on this place?

All right – the Dempseys are playing the Saucer tonight so I’m getting outta here. I’ll try to return to a more regular posting schedule this weekend.
