101 Things To Do In Memphis #45: Alchemy Memphis

by Melissa Thompson

The appropriately-named Alchemy offers the kind of dim, sexy atmosphere and sophisticated cocktails you might associate with Manhattan rather than our Midtown area.

Located right in the heart of the Cooper & Young historical district, Alchemy provides it's guests with a delightful new american style menu created and prepared by Chef Nick Scott and Chef de Cuisine Scott McQueen. Two chefs that have created some of the most appealing menus in the city time and time again. 

From behind the spacious bar, bartenders produce craft cocktails with ingredients that might be new to you, like The Alchemist (Eagle Rare, Antica, Aperol, and Peychaud bitters), and there're bourbon and scotch lists and a small plates menu.

101 Things To Do In Memphis #40: Lucky Cat Ramen

by Melissa Thompson

Zach and Sarah Nicholson’s popular ramen food truck has gone brick-and mortar. And later this year, Lucky Cat Ramen — which has been operating out of a temporary space in Midtown — is opening a permanent home on Broad Avenue for its ramen-heavy eatery that features bowls like the shoyu with pork bone broth and the yuzu veggie with a lemongrass-ginger vegetable broth. An ever-changing menu board lists the day’s offerings, which usually include a veggie bowl as well as pork and chicken offerings. The permanent location will serve alcohol as well as non-ramen selections like yakitori, tempura, and raw dishes.

101 Things To Do In Memphis #27: Carolina Watershed

by Melissa Thompson

Discover re-imagined down-home classics that can blow your grandma’s socks off, and wash them down with creative cocktails and craft beers from your favorite bartender.

Located in the south end of downtown on East Carolina Avenue, Carolina Watershed is probably one of the coolest uniquely constructed restaurants in town — it’s constructed from metal grain silos! But it’s so much more than the one-of-a-kind architecture.

“It all boils down to the atmosphere, the handcrafted cocktails and the locally sourced food,” explains owner Mac Hopper. Mac partnered with talented local chef Andy Knight to create a spot that has tasty dishes, craft beers and fun cocktails with a Southern spin. “Our food at Carolina Watershed is based on a Southern deli to which all of our sandwiches come with a Southern side — turnip greens, fried okra, black eyed peas, cornbread, etc.,” explains Andy of the menu.

Explore a playground for all ages that includes rocks, cascading waterfalls, cozy nooks, an overlook, and stage areas for live music.

A crew of friendly Shed-Heads — servers, bartenders, and kitchen pros — will be working hard to make your visit an experience to remember. 

Hours: Monday and Tuesday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.; Wednesday and Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Friday, 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.; Saturday, 9 a.m. to 2 a.m.; Sunday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
