Suhair's husband Jimmy Lauck, owner of the Little Tea Shop since 1982, died in July, and the restaurant was closed for several weeks after that. A holiday business boost would help make up for lost earnings, and there's an easy and tasty way to help.
With 48 hours notice, Suhair will cook your side dishes to go with the turkey, ham, or wild game main dish you might be serving. She suggests you bring your own serving plates and she'll arrange the veggies to fit them. If you're lucky and extra nice, there might even be some corn sticks in the bargain, but don't try to pass them off as your own creation — as if anyone would believe you.
Downtown, Memphis, the Memphis Tigers basketball team, and the Memphis Grizzlies have no better ambassador than Suhair Lauck. Good time to show the love.
