Memphis New Year's - local and healthy?

Strange request but I am looking for great local food in Memphis on New Year's Eve or Day that is ideally not deep-fried or just plain fatty. Like grilled catfish, boiled okra, etc.


And despite what I just said above, anyone know if Dyer's not answering their phone means they're closed?

  1. Try Soul Fish on Cooper. Not sure if they'll be open on New Year's, but they've got a lot of non-fried fare to go along with the fried stuff.

    1. Cafe 1912 (or some 191- date). Not sure about NY though...good brunch!

      1. Ok, a report:

        Thanks for the suggestions. Many places were closed or booked so I had the infamous grease burger at Dyer's before moving on to Little Rock and having my grilled catfish in the morning at Flying Fish downtown. Yum!
