A new restaurant (I'm sure the signage with be forthcoming) called Market Cafe has opened at 149 Madison between Second and Third. They offer lunches M - F, 11 - 3 that feature locally grown seasonal ingredients. Currently the menu offers such dishes as:
Sweet Potato Ravioli (spinach, sage cream sauce and toasted pumpkin seeds)
Mediterranean Sandwich (chickpea fritter, roasted seasonal vegetables, petite greens and herbed yogurt)
Chicken Pot Pie (creamy herb sauce, roasted chicken, seasonal vegetables and a cornmeal pie crust)
Roasted Beet Salad (roasted beets and seasonal vegetables, goat cheese, petite greens and herb goddess dressing)

Following up yesterday morning's tweet about another new restaurant, Salad Expressions, at 120 A. W. Willis Street (was Auction St.), I received their menu via fax (no website) and they have lots of great sounding salads like Raspberry-Orange Chicken Salad, Strawberry-Spinach Salad, Chicken, Spinach and Avocado Salad and Spicy Cilantro Cucumber Salad to name a few. Their number is 901-572-7004. I will say when I called to ask about the menu the lady who answered was gracious and helpful and, get this, seemed to understand customer service. That's hard to come by these days.
