Style: New pastures

TYRONZA — Clara Nell, 68, isn’t worried. Some Fridays, she has lines out the door! People from Memphis and Jonesboro, Osceola and Blytheville spilled onto Main Street, all of them waiting to devour her fried catfish, Cheree Franco writes in Tuesday Style's continuation of the Sunken Lands series.

“I keep my prices low, because I draw Social Security. I’m not in the business for money. I’m just in here to feed people when they’re hungry,” Nell says.

Tyboogie’s Cafe is the source of this nonexistent worry. Farmers Keith and Jill Forrester’s new restaurant in the white, boxy building that once housed Tyronza Grocery is less than a block from Nell’s own Midway Cafe. With its milky-blue facade and half-a-dozen daily pies, Midway has been a Tyronza staple since the 1930s. In recent years, it has been the town’s only restaurant.
