An Amazing New Restaurant

I found an amazing new restaurant in Downtown Memphis this week. Since eating there, no other food compares. The place that you just have to try is Encore.

I had the beef wellington and my friend had the duck. It did take a little while for the food to arrive, so they boxed up some carmelized pumpkin cheesecake with pear confit for me. It was amazing! To see their full menu, visit

The chef at Encore was previously the chef at Chez Phillipe, another great Memphis eatery.

They're open for lunch Tuesday - Friday and dinner on Tuesday - Sunday. Although you don't need reservations, they are available. And, they also have take out.

The one suggestion that I have is to enter from the street. If you enter from inside Peabody Place (like I did), you have to walk through the entire place to get to the server. Nobody is there to explain this, so it can be a little uncomfortable.

Happy eating!
