Manicures and McEwen's Revisited
Yesterday after work I had a manicure at Le Tre Salon at 113 Jackson in the Pinch District. I had the BEST manicure there actually. Anais was my nail nurturer who made my nails look better than they have in a long time. This is no small feat since I totally ignore my hands and nails and wait until they are almost past the point of no return to take action, or rather have someone else take action. Anyway, she offers regular manicures and spa manicures and pedicures so you can go the whole nine yards if you so desire. Le Tre is a full service salon in the duplex next to High Point Pinch. It has a cozy, comfortable atmosphere and the staff are very friendly and talented. 901-578-3491.
I have been again reminded that McEwen's never disappoints and I don't go there as often as I should. Last night I had dinner there with some friends and it was great. I was also so happy to see both the bar and the dining area were packed. I had the seared sea scallops with cheddar cheese grits and sauteed green beans. The service was also very good, and not just our waitress but all the staff were friendly and hospitable. This would be one among some other great downtown restaurants for Valentine's Day and they are offering a Valentine menu: http://www.mcewensonmonroe.com/menu/valentines/
Picture of my nails (per reader request) and Poppy's nails. I insisted on that color; Anais wanted to do a French manicure which I will try next time I go in. I am giving Poppy a nail clip today!
