I absolutely have a "style" of restaurant I love. Yes, the cuisine must be wonderful, but no matter the type of cuisine, this style is all about the ambience... Cozy, chic, accessible, beautiful. While on holiday in Memphis visiting family, it is my pleasure to share such a place in Hog & Hominy.
If you find yourself in Memphis, please visit! A "GQ Most Outstanding Restaurant of 2013" along with dozens of other accolades, Hog & Hominy is part of a recent little development called "Brookhaven Circle" which stands out to me as one of the most unique areas I've seen with restaurants that make up what appears to be a residential circle. What looks like charming, southern, ranch-style homes are actually restaurants like Hog & Hominy and another Award-Winning location, Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen. Here's a peek into our evening:
Peanut Butter Pie Y'all!
Hog & Hominy Accolades
