We are proud of Memphis and the work our colleagues and friends have done this year!
Check out this from Memphis Flyer's Susan Ellis.
The year kicked off in grand fashion in January when Karen Carrier unveiled her latest restaurant, Bar DKDC, specializing in a revolving menu of street food and sipping rums, in the former space of Dō. Said Carrier at the time, "We all work really hard around here to make sure Memphis is on the cutting edge, constantly changing, because things change. If they stay the same all the time, it gets boring."
No one could be bored with the changes in the Cooper-Young neighborhood. Cafe Ole got new owners and a spiffed-up menu. Greencork, a self-serve wine bar, opened on Young, and Phillip Ashley Chocolates debuted its boutique on Cooper. The Growler, the first of the city's craft beer "filling stations," opened as well. (The Madison Growler Shop, inside the Cash Saver, opened shortly after, and a third growler place, Memphis Filling Station, is in the plans for next year in East Memphis.)
