The 12 Best Brunches in Memphis

It defines relationships (brunch together the morning after means you're basically engaged) and mends friendships (that tipsy spat doesn't matter once you're sharing hash browns). It's the meal that invented, then perfected the art of day drinking. It's made chicken & waffles, shrimp & grits, and Bloody Marys mainstream. Undoubtedly Memphis loves brunch, so here are the 12 places to get your morning swerve on in the Bluff City.

December 16-22, 2016: This week in Memphis history

2011: On the front page of The Daily News, the Memphis City Council approves a planned development for the south side of Madison Avenue in Overton Square, including a new $16 million public parking garage to be built by the city. The garage is eligible for public funding because it is to include a water detention basin in its base that alleviates a chronic flooding problem in the area, which includes Lick Creek. Loeb Properties Inc. has a contract with the Colorado company that owns the entertainment district and the contract runs out at the end of 2011. A Loeb plan to make a supermarket the anchor of a revitalized square has fallen through and Loeb is now envisioning Overton Square as a theater district with a $19.2 million investment by Loeb in the area.
