A few good ones in my vicinity, off the top of my head:

Frenchy's (only the original on Scott Street, of course)
Original Timmy Chan's (on Scott @ OST, of course)
#1 Chicken and Rice (Almeda & Blodgett)
Navy Seafood (you buy we fry) (Scott St @ Noah)
Rice Kitchen (Holly Hall)
Chettinad (Holly Hall)
Tayeb Mandi Grill (Holly Hall & Almeda)
Hunan Takee Outee Restaurant (Almeda)
Sleepy's Po-Boys (S Main)

AND...a special RIP to Guy's Meat Market, closing last week after 80 years (60 years on OST)

Yes, I am very fat.

yeah, I'd hope that a city of 2+ million would have a few good places to eat.

Perhaps they could do a story on the Applebees on E 13th St.

I was a big fan of Peska in Houston although I think it has closed temporarily.

Actually, I will say that's the great thing about this conference - with most of the schools located in cities there are usually a ton of places to eat and things to do.

Since Dallas is covered I will give a shout out to my hometown Memphis.

1. Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen - Memphis's darling. A combination of Deep South and Italian, it is genuinely unique and delicious. Started by a couple of guys I went to High School with, this restaurant has been featured in New York Times and every foodie magazine you can imagine. Also take a look at Hog and Hominy, their latest project.
2. Gus's Fried Chicken - Memphis's candidate for World's Greatest Fried Chicken. Literally addictive - may have been the leading factor in the death of Larry Finch, god rest his soul. Extra: Also happens to be located right next to Gibson's doughnuts - try the Oreo or Maple Bacon.
3. Central BBQ - there are more BBQ joints in Memphis than you can shake a stick at (Corky's, Rendevous, Germantown Commissary) here is a solid one that's reasonably priced. Plenty of other things on the menu than just ribs, they're all good. Also have three locations. Also, if you are looking for a quick BBQ fix and want a traditional sandwich Memphis-style (the slaw on the sandwich) I'd recommend a quick trip through Top's BBQ. It's basically a run-down fast food BBQ chain but I think they are pretty good, especially when you packing up to drive out.
4. Soulfish Cafe - For catfish and hushpuppy lovers. The fish is fresh, the hushpuppies are fantastic, and, again, reasonable prices and three locations.

And, the if-you-have-the-guts-to-go-to-it contribution: Coletta's Italian has a BBQ pizza that's AMAZING. Only problem is it's not in the best part of town. Just sayin'. But it has me getting homesick just thinking about it.

Aaaaaaand now I'm hungry :)
