Wow. We are moving from Dallas to Northern Virginia, slowly, soon. We need lunch in Texarkana, dinner and breakfast in Little Rock, lunch, dinner, breakfast and probably lunch again in Memphis, dinner and breakfast in Nashville, booked for some home vegan in Johnson City, lunch in Roanoke, and any advice at all for Manassas -- it's near where we'll be living.
Re: Memphis, we're going to treat ourselves to the Peabody so that our little boy can hang with their ducks. How are the restaurants at the Peabody? How is room service?
In general, we need kid-friendly and, ideally, dog-friendly (two of them, big ones -- they'll be at a kennel while we're in Memphis). After that we like good food. I am kind of a barbecue snob because I cook it myself and I am usually not satisfied by commercial interpretations. I am really not a snob about any food except barbecue though, and even if the barbecue is weak I am willing if the sides are good.
