Off to See the Deli?
Want to see the Wizard of Young Avenue? (His french fries are amazing.) Well, just follow the Yellow Brick Road outside the Young Avenue Deli. There, you'll find your favorite Deli takeout and a cold beer in a big-ol’ plastic cup.

Memphis restaurants had the green light to partially reopen Monday. But not every restaurant jumped back into the fray. Huey’s announced on Twitter Monday morning that they were still closed until further notice.
As our city moves into phase one of reopening, we want to let you know that in an effort to keep our customers and employees safe, our dining rooms will remain closed until further notice. When we decide to open our doors, we will let you know. Until then, stay safe, Huey's fam! pic.twitter.com/QOzJGjNDse— Huey's Restaurants (@HueysRestaurant) May 4, 2020
Nextdoor launched a poll last week to gauge just what businesses Memphis neighbors were eager to visit.

However, many in the comments of the post said it was way too early to go out in public.
