Tell people you write about food for a living, and most reactions are pretty predictable: “What a great job,” they enthuse. “Do you get to eat for free? What’s your favorite restaurant?” Then people run through their list of favorite places to eat, naming longtime favorites for steaks or barbecue along with trendy newcomers for cocktails and shared plates.
In November when these conversations pop up, I always direct readers to the annual Memphis magazine Readers’ Restaurant Poll, which is live now and continues through the end of November. Our community’s definitive annual survey on where to eat, the poll lets readers weigh in on more than 40 categories, including best chef, best new restaurant, and the restaurant we miss the most. Cast your vote today!
While we can’t cover the tab for your meals, we will use your valuable opinions to compile the Readers’ Restaurant Poll for our February issue, so please participate. And in the meantime, if you need a little nudge, check out the winners of last year’s poll, announced in our February 2014 issue.
