Eli’s closed inexplicably in late November, and it wasn’t until about a week later that a sign was posted that it was indeed closed. No explanation given.

Bishop’s will be opening its fourth location when it opens on West Main Street, it’s second in Tupelo. Bishop’s original restaurant is in Saltillo. It opened on McCullough Boulevard a couple of years ago and last year opened a third location in Booneville.

The West Main Street location is scheduled to open in mid-February.
