The Krewe Of DeJavu is a place I was looking forward to visit simply because of the incredible Chef, Gary Williams, that runs the place in an amazing way. This is an Original Authentic Creole restaurant where they also serve the best Soulfood, Vegan, and Vegetarian foods. Chef Gary Williams has rightly developed a reputation as one of the best cooks in the mid-south. The part I love most is that this guy didn’t learn from attending years of culinary school, but he spent years with his mother and grandmother learning from them and through self-teaching. With every bite, you can taste the delicious style of New Orleans as if you were in his grandmothers home right then!

Apart from the Chef’s food, he uses his restaurant in as many ways he can to benefit the community. You can find him and his Krewe at SRVS every year, they’ve been at March of Dimes, Heal The Hood Foundation, and so many more. They truly are all over the community! Not only this, but when they have leftover food at night they go bring it to the homeless when they can. “Help, help, help..” Is what Chef Gary Williams states, he loves to help and he has a huge passion and heart for giving back to the community. 

The most popular association with The Krewe Of DeJavu is their food truck and catering services. Don’t hesitate to go grab their food on wheels or have an event catered by the Krewe, you won’t regret it!

Hanging With Chef Patrick at Rizzo’s Diner

Into The Kitchen!

Chef Michael Patrick is one of those people that deserve every part of the title “Chef” being placed before their name, and this isn’t just because his food is delicious!

I got the opportunity to go behind the scenes at Rizzo’s Diner with the Chef and see how he prepares a burger that is by no means a normal burger. One of the things that I love most about this Diner is that all the ingredients, whether that be in the back of the kitchen to the ingredients at the bar, all come from a local source. Not only is this great support for the community but you can taste the difference in the freshness through every bite!

As he talked me through his process of creating this burger, there was no doubt that he had an enormous amount of passion behind getting the ingredients just right. Apart from that, a heart for making Rizzo’s Diner a place that is delicious and welcoming in every form.  This is a dish that is inspired by many different people and many different dishes. The homemade patty is seared on both sides along with the bread before cooking in the oven with cheese. 

After finishing up the burger, we headed on over to the bar where Cindy showed us the creation of some of the most popular cocktails at Rizzo’s. I was also very pleasantly surprised to see the large selection of whiskey’s all based in Tennessee.

From spending a short afternoon in this Diner and getting a taste of the Rizzo’s experience, I can confidently say that if you haven’t checked out this gem, this must be the next place on your list! You can check out their menu on our new local 411’s page here!

Meritan & The Annual Bike Tour

Meritan & The Annual Bike Tour

Meritan just recently moved into their brand new home at the end of December and now are located in downtown Memphis. The reason for this move was for several reasons, such as most of their clients are from that area, allowing the company to be more accessible to them. After talking with several employees, it seems that the building being one floor has made everything much easier not having to deal with elevator issues or stairs. After touring the building and speaking with the employees, it’s easy to see how this move has assisted in the ability to effectively fulfill their mission within the organization.

If you don’t know, Meritan is a health and social service non-profit that was founded in 1961 and since then they have added on foster care into their work. The heart of everyone who works at Meritan is what makes the company who they are today, they so effortlessly love on their clients, from babies to seniors, and pour themselves into improving the well-being of others and creating an independence into their lives. They live out their mission statement and allow that to make a huge impact on the lives they touch. 

Meritan’s largest fundraiser that they do every year is the Meritan Moonlight Classic Bike Tour, and this year they are re-vamping the event to something bigger and better!

Along with their company, they have moved their bike tour downtown where Bass Pro has so generously offered up their space as the representing sponsor. Another one of the differences is that this year they are providing two routes, one is eight miles and the other is sixteen. They are also moving the start time from midnight to 10pm, therefore there is no excuse to bring your kids out to the fun too! People drive from all over the country to attend this event as they deck out their bikes with lights and bling and put on all sorts of costumes to celebrate. The date this year is August 4th, so put it on your calendar and spread the word!

cityCURRENT is a privately-funded catalyst for the Mid-South and Middle Tennessee. A team of more than 100 partner companies have come together to host FREE events, along with an array of positive-oriented media and philanthropic initiatives to enrich, engage, and impact the community. Our mission is to #PowertheGOOD and we invite you to join with us
