DeJavu Restaurant Opens Downtown Location

DeJavu Restaurant Celebrates the Opening of a second 
location in Downtown Memphis.  Chef Gary Williams owner, 
has rolled the success of the small DeJavu location into a 
fantasy duplicate, with many upgrades.  

DeJavu Restaurant
is located at 51 S. Main Street.
Everyone that comes in that works or lives in the 
downtown area, has commented on the fact that 
DeJavu is the one thing that Downtown was missing.

The decor of DeJavu is filled with the art of Frank Robinson.
Mr. Robinson did some special artwork filled with a
New Orleans Theme.

As a part of the Grand Opening Week Chef Gary Williams 
was a gracious host to many friends, family, local politicians, 
and entertainers.  Some of the guests were former
Mayor Willie Herenton, Julian Bolden, James Alexander, 
Henry Turley, Steve Cohen, Myron Lowery. 
Everything was perfect, the Jazz band played as hundreds 
of guests lined up to taste the luxurious spread Chef Gary had 
laid out.  There was a blanket of  Fruit, Crudites and Cheese. 
 Pasta Primavera, Portabella Mushroom Pasta, Catfish Strips,
 Lemon Herb Chicken,  A Roast Beef  carving station,  and petite cheesecakes are just a few items on display. 
Also waitresses circulated platter with gator bites and 
remoulade sauce.

Also, neighbor Donald O' Connor, unveiled a dance 
extravaganza with his Watoto dancers.  The young 
dancers serenaded the crowd out front on Main Street. They
danced to the sounds of Stax, Earth, Wind and Fire and 
the latest from Justin Timberlake. 

As a final note, we would like to thank Brooke Thomas
of Fox 13 for coming down to update everyone about 
the new items on our menu.
