By ALEXANDER WILSON and DAVID ROSE-WESTThe city of Memphis has made a big deal about the “Memphis revival,” the yearlong period of the city becoming a hotbed of barbecue and foodies.
The city has had some of the nation’s most beloved restaurants, but the barbecue itself has not been an issue, despite the popularity of the festival in its hometown of Memphis.
There have been some exceptions.
Last year, the city hosted the Taste of Memphis, which is held every July.
It featured barbecue from a number of different venues, but it is the first time that the city has hosted such an event in the country.
The festival also featured food trucks, live music, a barbecue auction, a children’s carnival, and the Grand Opening of the first Grand Central Station restaurant.
And it had some real winners.
“We have an amazing food scene,” said Bobbi Tipton, a longtime restaurant critic for the Memphis Commercial Appeal.
“A lot of our friends have moved out to Nashville.
People are going to take their business elsewhere.
And there’s been an incredible amount of change.”
Memphis’s new mayor, James Caldwell, has a goal of transforming the city into a “food mecca,” as he described the city in an interview with ABC News.
“I’m really focused on making this a really great city, a great place to live,” he said.
“But we also have a very passionate food community, and we’re going to have a renaissance of the kind of things we do in Memphis.”
So, what is the “memphis revival”?
For many years, Memphis was a hot spot for barbecue.
But the city began to lose its popularity after the Great Recession hit in 2009.
But some people say it could be because of the rise of new restaurants and barbecue trucks, which are gaining popularity.
One of the new restaurants opening up in Memphis this year is a barbecue truck company called The Memphis Smokehouse.
The Memphis Meat Shop is also opening a new location.
But in 2017, The Memphis Revival was the biggest event in Memphis history.
The event attracted people from all over the city, from people who had never seen a barbecue before to people who were there for the first and only time.
For some, the revival was an unexpected blessing.
“For a lot of people, the barbecue was a little bit of a mystery to them,” said James Dannemelius, who owns The Memphis BBQ and Food Truck.
“There’s a whole spectrum of people.
It’s a combination of all ages and all ethnicities.
It has a really strong flavor and it’s really rich.”
It also brought some new restaurants, including a barbecue restaurant called The Sweet Spot, where diners can enjoy a grilled cheese sandwich with fresh tomatoes and pulled pork, along with a variety of local meats, including smoked brisket, pulled pork ribs, chicken and pulled turkey.
For many people, however, the reunion is a welcome change.
“It was a real eye opener for me,” said Katelyn Miller, who is from Memphis and attended the event.
“When I got to see all of these people together and have the first place open up, it was like, ‘Wow.
I’m back in Memphis.'”
It was a great experience for me, said Katheryn Lueck, who attended the festival and is from Knoxville.
She said she is looking forward to seeing the new restaurant that opened in the next few months.
“My son loves this place,” said Luecks daughter, Kylie.
“He’s really into it.”
Katelyns daughter was at the barbecue event and said she has no plans to ever return to Memphis.
“If I come back, I’m not coming back to Memphis,” she said.
For other Memphisers, the BBQ event was a celebration of what they love about the city.
“Memphians love barbecue, and I love the Memphis barbecue, too,” said Tiptons son, Anthony.
“This is the most amazing thing that’s ever happened in my life.
And I’m so proud of it.”
