Downtown: Felicia Suzanne Willett is an alum of Johnson & Wales in Charleston, South Carolina, and former protégée of Emeril Lagasse; her eponymous restaurant opened in 2002 in the historic Lowenstein Building at the corner of Main and Madison. Her cuisine is American with a low-country focus, and on any given night you will find the Memphis power elite in the house. There are two dining rooms for a truly upscale experience, plus a gorgeous patio that features both communal and individual seating for a more casual dining atmosphere. When the patio is open (warm weather months, which extends from May through September) Thursdays bring Tacos & Tunes to the patio, a must-hit way to start a long weekend.
