Restaurant Iris: On the Prowl for the Best Iris Photo

I know most of you have got the heat on tonight even if you don't fess up. Still, it's spring, and time to celebrate the iris, the state flower of Tennessee.


As most Memphis foodies know, Kelly English's restaurant in Midtown is named Restaurant Iris, and so English has a photo contest every April. Amateur photographers submit photos, and viewers vote for their favorite. I just clicked through the lovely portfolio of bearded Irises and natives, and so should you. The photographer with the most votes wins a dinner for two at Restaurant Iris. How cool is that?


To submit a photo, post it on the restaurant's Facebook page. To vote, click here.
