Lunch from One and Only BBQ

7 Apr

One & Only BBQ

We had lunch catered for the entire office today from One and Only BBQ at Poplar & Kirby.  The food came highly recommended, and we were not disappointed.  The pulled pork had a wonderful smokey flavor that everyone raved about.  The owner delivered the food himself and was very prompt and friendly.  In addition to the pork we had baked beans, cole slaw and two types of potato salad, twice-baked mayonnaise-base and a mustard base.  All the side dishes were also very good.  While it is located outside the “240 loop” and will take us away from our immediate neighborhood, it will be worth the trip.  Give it a try, and you won’t be disappointed.

Dinner at Marciano’s

29 Mar

Saturday evening we enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Marciano’s on East Brookhaven Circle in East Memphis.  Having been invited to dinner to celebrate hubby’s birthday by a dear friend, we jumped at the chance to experience this restaurant for the first time.  We were delighted by both the food and the service.  After having the antipasto platter for an appetizer, I had the Lentil Sausage soup and Chicken Piccata.  Hubby had salad and their specialty, Shrimp Scampi.  The atmosphere was quiet and relaxed providing the perfect backdrop for a leisurely dinner with delightful conversation.  There are nightly specials, and we will definitely visit again.
