Janice Hogan: Chef Danny Eslava (Eslava Grill) ... his fried oysters are simply divine.
Melissa Fowler: Darling Chef Roaché (Rochez). The only chef in town for true foodies.
Dylan Ray: Tom Ramsey’s food is so good! He fed me and some friends on our prom night, and it was the best food I’ve ever had probably inside or outside of Mississippi! Underground 119 is a really cool place too, which doesn’t hurt! But it’s all about the food!
Jessica Myrick Singleton: Personally I’m a huge fan of Dan Blumenthal (BRAVO!, Sal & Mookie’s). Not only is he a great chef, but he puts amazing people in charge at his restaurants who incorporate new and fun dishes. All of his (and Jeff’s) restaurants have such a friendly and fun atmosphere and are simply AMAZING people to work for.
Nick Thompson: Lee Hurley at Parlor Market. Makes the finest gourmet pb & j for his close friends. His 4th of july cookout was a feast.
Sherri Hughes: Chef Nicholas Wallace of The King Edward. A toss up between the great meal which was prepared at the Clash in The Kitchen, a WONDERFUL fish and the Mediterranean Shrimp Taco and Black Eyed Pea Gumbo, which are both on the menu at the King Edward, you can’t go wrong with whatever you may choose.
Troy Berch: Derek Emerson....Walker’s (Drive-In) Mac and Cheese is close to heaven on Earth, and his scallops are served at the Pearly Gates.
