Fatsumo Sushi

The promise of sushi has lingered over Fondren for the last few years, and finally it has come to fruition thanks to Fatsumo Sushi, the latest restaurant to hit Duling Avenue. A friend and I decided to check it out this evening, just a few weeks after the restaurant opened.
I had heard mixed reviews of the place: some loved, some not-so-much, but I always try to keep an open mind until I’ve had a chance to try something for myself. We arrived early, around 6:15, and decided to sit outside …

Alive and kicking

Carpe Jackson is coming back. With the news of potential food trucks on the way, restaurants moving, changing menus and new venues opening every month or two, there’s too much going on NOT to write about the food scene in Jackson. Please stay tuned, and feel free to offer suggestions for places that Carpe Jackson needs to check out.

Goodbye, Jackson!

After a year, I feel like I haven’t had nearly enough time to explore Jackson—there are still dozens of restaurants on my places-to-try list! But I’ll be starting a new job in D.C. soon, so this is my last day in Mississippi. Thanks to everyone who reads and comments for being so welcoming, and for helping make this blog so much fun!

The good news is that Carpe Jackson isn’t going to die when I move. A few awesome friends of the blog have offered to keep posting, and I’ll continue running the Restaurant Openings Report. Of course, I’ll also be reading, commenting, and managing things from afar, and hope to do a couple more posts as well. So keep in touch!

King Edward Grill

I had never eaten at the King Edward Grill (235 W. Capitol St, Jackson), but an article in the JFP about the new chef made me want to try it out.  Because the King Edward Hotel is kind of a swanky place, I figured it wouldn’t be cheap (I couldn’t find a menu online)—so I decided to start small, with lunch.
It seemed that everyone else in the restaurant was getting the buffet, and our waitress looked surprised when we asked for menus instead.  The fact that they don’t usually serve …
