Southern Flair

Felicia Suzanne Willett

Felicia Suzanne's, Memphis

After years of working with JBF Award winner Emeril Lagasse, Felicia Suzanne Willett struck out on her own and opened her eponymous restaurant, which is now a destination for classic Southern cuisine in historic downtown Memphis. Join us for a menu from below the Mason–Dixon Line, along with wines selected by master vintner Jim Clendenen.
