New eatery offers international cuisine
In recent weeks, Tunica has seen a proliferation of restaurants which specialize in everything from Tex-Mex and authentic Mexican food to pizza.
Now, with the advent of the latest dining establishment to call Tunica home, patrons can satisfy their tastes for a more diverse range of international cuisine.
Watson’s Green Olive Restaurant, which is located adjacent to the renovated Watson’s Cash Store in the old Dorothy Ann Gin office building, opened for business last Saturday. The restaurant features an extensive menu of fare, including Italian and seafood dishes, as well as Middle Eastern-influenced foods.

Aldermen set April 11 preservation hearing
The Town of Tunica took the next step toward establishment of a local historic district at Tuesday’s Board of Aldermen meeting. The board set an April 11 hearing to consider the boundaries of the district, which were recommended to the board by the town’s Historic Preservation Commission.
“The Commission is eager to move forward,” town planner Bob Barber reported. “Tunica has a great downtown, and these preservation programs, if administered properly, are a great benefit.”
