Good French style bread for po-boys in Memphis

thanks mamasquirrel. i'll check it out!

Good French style bread for po-boys in Memphis

Anyone in Memphis know where I can buy bread similar to the po-boy bread you get in New Orleans!? Need it for french dip this weekend.


Memphis Recs near Cook Convention BBQ plz!

For a really good fresh take on Italian, try Spindini, 383 South Main. Owned and operated by a member of the Grisanti family, a memphis institution. Great place to spend a cool fall night in Memphis.

4 meals in St. Louis

For a great meal downtown close to the arch. take a very short cab ride to AL's on 1st and Biddle. It's an old school italian steakhouse that is a true throwback. Many speak of Tony's on this board but rarely is Al's mentioned. I'm sure some disagree but for my money, Al's is the winner. There is no menu. Your waiter will bring out a silver tray with a mulitude of meats and seafoood and begin to tell you the various ways each can be prepared. I suggest the new york strip with peppercorn congac sauce. And check out the complimentary blue cheese ball they bring out to start your meal. I got the recipe from Al himself before he passed away. Hope you try it

Memphis - Holiday Deli and Ham


Just about anything with their signature ham and their turkey breast is good. However, if you like pimento cheese, their's is homemade and it rocks!

I never eat _______ out because nobody makes it right but me.

lasagna or italian meatballs!

Payne's Bar-B-Q in Memphis - Wow!!!

The sliced pork is also very good and unique even for Memphis I believe. Great Great sandwiches!

Best Caesar Salad in St. Lou?

For old fashioned, the best I've had is at Al's @ 1st & Biddle.

First time to Vegas- best "non-tourist" restaurants?

Any cuisine, any price range. Just looking for great food in tinseltown. Thanks

Where to eat in St. Louis

Hey JoeyH,

How bout that cheese ball with breadsticks to open the meal! I got the recipe from Al himself before he passed. What a place!

Where to eat in St. Louis

I agree with JoeyH on Al's. It is old school but tell me what you think after you've tried the surf and turf ordered the moodyfoodie way. Filet mignon w/Peppercorn Cognac Cream Sauce and Blackend Lobster tail. Wow! I've had it many times and it's awesome. Don't forget the Crepe's Suzette served table side. Tell Harold, Shirley's boy said hi!

Best to al,

Strange Pairings that Taste Uncommonly Good

We ate them raw and liked the texture but you could try glazed.

Strange Pairings that Taste Uncommonly Good

Peanut Butter, Mayo and Vidalia Onion sandwich. Read once it was a favorite of the late news anchor Peter Jennings. Tried it with a friend and loved it. Peanut Butter/Grilled Cheese also great paired with a bowl of Chili!

Visiting from St. Louis 8/9-8/12.

Great spot for Martini is the bar at the Ritz-Carlton/Battery Park. Great view of Lady Liberty as the sun sets.

For Pizza take the subway to Brooklyn and have a slice at DiFara's Pizza
