We gave it our best shot, but we’re not the South’s Tastiest Town

Southern Living broke many a Memphian’s heart today. Memphis finished second in the South’s Tastiest Town competition, behind Durham, North Carolina.

Recount? Who’s with me?

The second place write-up forMemphis lists Cozy Corner and the Rendezvous as “bucket-list destinations.” There’s also a tip of the hat to Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen, Restaurant Iris, Hog & Hominy and “the city’s growing mobile food community.”

Red velvet Frankly Scarlett cupcakes from Muddy’s Bake Shop are listed as “best bites,” along with sweetbreads and dumplings from Restaurant Iris as well as ribs from Cozy Corner.
