The 10 Hottest New Restaurants in Memphis

17 Berkshire owner Nuha Abuduhair opened her shop full of pastel-colored desserts in Overton Square a few months ago. It has since become a go-to spot for authentic French macarons, as well as the other beautifully decorated cakes and chocolates that helped make Abuduhair famous on social media. This is a personal project for the hobbyist-turned-pro baker: The shop’s name is also the address of her childhood home.

All The Best Burgers You Have To Eat In Memphis

All The Best Burgers You Have To Eat In Memphis

– Try the Good Night/Good Cause from Hopdoddy. Yes, it’s a chain, but $1 of proceeds for this particular burger (with cheddar, caramelized onions, caffeinated BBQ, jalapeños) are donated back to the Stax Academy.

– The Pub Burger at Local Gastropub (Overton or Main Street) is good for $6.99 (with fries) during lunch and all day on Mondays. Nice.

– Babalu Burger from Babalu is available at their Overton Square and East Memphis locations, and people really love it.

– The Southern Gentleman from Belly Acres in Overton Square comes with greens, bacon, and sweet potato.

Boozy Milk Shakes to Celebrate the End of Summer

Boozy Milk Shakes to Celebrate the End of Summer

"If you have a milkshake and I have a milkshake and my straw reaches across the room, I'll end up drinking your milkshake."

Disgraced New Mexico Senator Albert Fall uttered that line during congressional hearings about the Teapot Dome scandal in 1924 — and to be truthful, he was explaining the concept of oil field drainage. But his analogy was immortalized in Paul Thomas Anderson's 2007 film, There Will Be Blood, and the lines have been seared in my brain forever since.

I love milkshakes. Especially alcoholic milkshakes, which, these days, are available in eateries and bars all around Memphis. I've gotten boozy on classic milkshakes at the Arcade Restaurant Downtown, and on 1,000-calorie S'mores- and Nutella-flavored concoctions at newer joints like Railgarten and Hopdoddy Burger Bar in Overton Square.
