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.
