Food Scene

This restaurant has recently opened in Avondale. It features thai-fusion cuisine and extremely popular! Expect a 30 minute wait or so. Also not best to go in large groups here-- groups of 2-4 are optimal.

Food truck turned restaurant. They have an amazing mac and cheese grilled cheese, and their salads are delicious. This is also a fairly busy restaurant, but has better luck for groups! It is also a little cheaper than some other restaurants around the area!

Rowe's is also open for dinner, serving one of the best burgers in town. I highly recommend going there for brunch-- they have a bloody mary bar, excellent selection of brunch options, as well as outdoor seating that is pet friendly! The restaurant is family and group friendly!

Hotbox and Wooden Goat are owned by the same folks. This is an Asian fusion shop, located in a trailer in the back of Parkside. It's a hidden spot that really only locals know about. We recommend the drunken noodles.

Lots of ducks, pretty close to the house, very close to a lot of bar and dining options! There is a small play area, as well as a library next door.

Arts & Culture

BCRI has done an amazing job curating the museum. We would say that it competes with the Memphis Civil Rights Museum. Truly moving. Plan to spend 3-5 hours here.
