Yesterday I met up with two of my friends from ArtsMemphis for lunch at one of Memphis’ hidden gems. Nestled in the Memphis Botanic Garden is Fratelli’s in the Garden. Minutes in either direction from a crowded Poplar Ave. and Park Ave. is a refuge from the urban world around us, one full of flowers, trees, big backyards, and awesome sandwiches! Fratelli’s is providing food at the Shell Out for the Arts event at the Levitt Shell on Friday night, so we wanted to stop by and say hello and get a little lunch.
The three of us sat at a nice patio table in the warm sun, not to be confused with the hot summer sun! In my opinion, fall is the best time to sit outside for a nice meal. While we waited for our drinks, we were treated to a nice olive appetizer.
I love olives, so this was great.
