About the restaurant
Vicari is a beautiful Italian Grill located in Historic Downtown Corinth, Mississippi. The menu features traditional Italian favorites as well as signature salads, fresh fish, steak, lamb and veal. The facility is a completely restored building that was originally built in the late 1800\'s. The restoration kept all of the beautiful exposed brick and complimented it with glorious marble and hardwood floors.

We really enjoyed our visit to Vicari. It was our third time there. The food is always great. The service is very good as well. Great menu with a vast variety of protein options - seafood, chicken, steak, and pork. Wonderful pasta as well. Highly recommend Vicari for a romantic dinner or a family dinner as well.

Long Beach
About the restaurant
Located in the heart of downtown Long Beach, Radish is a celebration of the agricultural spirit of the Gulf Coast and the unlikely connection between a charming coastal town and the humble root vegetable that put it on the map. Nineteenth-century farmers took advantage of the L&N Railroad and the opportunity to ship the fruits of their labor northward. The favored Yankee bar snack of the day was a long scarlet radish dipped in luxurious butter and coarse salt. The good times lasted until Prohibition, when local bars shuttered and demand for the Long Beach Red dried up. Today, Radish, led by Chef William Rester and team, embraces time-honored techniques and traditions to create an ingredient-driven menu that showcases what it means to eat and drink in the South.

This quaint restaurant was an absolute gem to find. Service was wonderful. Ingredients were fresh. Food and drinks were 5-star in flavor and presentation. The chef checked in as well. A great experience. Wish they were open for brunch!

Greenwood
About the restaurant
Giardina's, one of the Mississippi Delta's most historic restaurants, was founded in 1936 by Joseph Giardina, in Greenwood, Mississippi. A unique blend of sophistication and warmth, Giardina's is the perfect setting for any event. Seating consists of fourteen private booths and the large dining room opens onto a beautiful courtyard. The restaurant's interior space and state-of-the-art kitchen were designed by world-renowned architects. Considerable effort was made to retain the character and charm of the original Giardina's, but the white tablecloths and fine crystal add the feeling of elegance one would expect from a fine dining restaurant in a large metropolitan area. Giardina's bar, reminiscent of a bygone era, features the same dark wood and tile of the restaurant while offering today's premium liquors, wines and liqueurs. Featuring steaks, seafood and Italian cuisine, Giardina's atmosphere is old world elegant but dress is laid-back "Delta casual.”

The food and service were excellent. We had fish, a salad, artichoke hearts, and the pork chop. Loved the individual nooks for each table. Great experience.

About the restaurant
Evergreen is currently under new ownership by the group that owns Mosaic! The dining room has been renovated to provide a lounge space, and opened up to provide some natural light to make the space more warm and inviting.

Chef Connor Hurst under the guidance of James Beard nominee Alex Perry, brings a seasonal twist on some southern favorites. We offer an ever changing list of dishes including steaks, oysters, fish, chicken, house made pasta and so much more. Our meals wouldn't be complete without a signature cocktail or paired bottle of wine.

It was fine. Waitress was wonderful and carefully steered us away from several dishes towards the few she said were actually good. Wine list and cocktail list above average for a smaller venue. Our food was good not great but we didn’t see many other choices in town.
