Chef/ Restaurateur- Karen B. Carrier famed for -The Mollie Fontaine Lounge, Do Sushi, Another Roadside Attraction Catering opened Beauty Shop Restaurant in what was once said to be Priscilla Presley's curl-and-dye spot. It's a camp wonderland where the facade is Jetsons-era Vitrolite, a bar replaces the wash sinks, and choice seating is offered beneath hooded Belvedere hair dryers. Carrier is a mad genius of sorts. The restaurant's motto is "Look Good, Eat Good," and while the place makes you want to look good, you will eat good at The Beauty Shop. The menu is widely varied ~ a down -home American stance with world-beat tints and edges. The Beauty Shop is about the coolest, hippest restaurant around. It screams "Memphis", yet does so with ingenuity and originality; it plays a wacky theme to the limit but doesn't stream beyond the pale- It makes you feel good to be there,part of the fun; part of the animated crowd and leaves you well-fed to boot. What could be cooler that that?

Cute place, love the food...service started just fine, but the server came by every few minutes to ask if I was finished when I clearly was not. Guess I wasn’t moving fast enough for her - she then completely ignored me, while passing my table several times - I finally left for the bathroom, and she managed to pay attention when she thought I might skip out! Very disappointing!!!!

We love Beauty Shop. The food is great and the service is excellent. My wife is vegan and I am vegetarian and their dinner menu, especially the small plates, has options for both of us. The waitress was also very helpful in offering tips on how to veganize a few of the dishes. We mentioned that we were there celebrating our anniversary and the hostess/owner immediately moved us to a booth which was quieter and more private, we really appreciated this. Overall we had a wonderful meal.

Unique authentic Beautyshop atmosphere with surprisingly exceptional food. The service was exceptional and did not bother us or hurry us out. A really fun environment. Make reservations.

Our dining experiences here have always been nothing short of incredible. The creativity and imagination behind the well-executed and well-planned menu has us coming back again and again , and the service is excellent as well.

It was my first time dining at The Beauty Shop, and it couldn’t have been a better experience. The food, drinks, and service were EXCEPTIONAL!!!

All the food I've ever had here is exemplary. This is probably the most creative menu I've seen in Memphis. It's not quite as fancy as, say, Iris or Flight, but the flavors are overall more adventurous. The service has never been bad, but it's not always great (which I expect at this price point). Lunch here is surprisingly a good value. Dinner is naturally more expensive, but I think it's worth it for a special occasion. It's one of my favorite menus in the city.

One of Memphis’ hidden gems in Cooper Young, The Beauty Shop really was at one time a hair salon. Priscilla Presley is reported to have been a patron!

A salon no longer, the Beauty Shop is not a presumptuous or large place. You can dress up or dress down. If you have group of 5 ask for one of the more secluded booths. It tends to get crowded at the front door at peak times, so either come early or late or make a reservation (strongly recommended).

The mixologist can whip up a special or your favorite. My Grey Goose Cosmo was perfectly blended and chilled. A great start to the first course - a Thai style dumpling with mint that was plenty to share.

The restaurant specializes in seasonal plates and the pumpkin starter my companion had was delicious. We skipped the salad and each ordered favorites - a great coffee-rubbed steak with terrific fried baked potato bites (think a loaded baked potato that looks like a French fry with a delicate Panko crust) and a melt in your mouth pork shoulder with Napa cabbage slaw and some lovely sauces all around plus a slightly sweet Johnnycake to offset the savory. The perfect bite - pork, slaw, sauce, cake — heavenly...

Dessert was a slightly dry lemon pound cake with Fresh strawberries, homemade ice cream and Chantilly cream. This was a new dessert for us. I strongly recommend their gelato and the cannelloni if you come.

We had a lovely Valentines dinner with very friendly, smiling service. The staff was dressed for the evening and made everything feel special.

If you’re looking for a cool place, great menu, eclectic decor where you can really feel the Memphis vibe, check out The Beauty Shop. You won’t be disappointed.
