“I’m really excited, not just about Bounty and about Broad, but about Memphis,” Jackson Kramer said in this Commercial Appeal article.
The building will have two floors with a market on the ground floor that will sell butcher cut meat and some smoked meats and sausages, with possible prepared food items like coffee and small bite items. The second floor, where the main dining room and bar will be located, will overlook the water tower and the future site of the ArtPlace amphitheater.
Chef Kramer will continue to rely on his network of local farmers to provide seasonal produce and meats for his signature cuisine. While the restaurant will not feature a lunch service, the market will offer a selection of freshly prepared foods available for pickup or dine-in
throughout the day. The butcher shop will exclusively feature locally and regionally sourced meats raised on
pasture without hormones or antibiotics.
Chef Kramer is currently executive chef of Interim Restaurant in East Memphis. He has partnered with fellow Christian Brothers High School graduate Taylor Berger and local attorney Michael Tauer. Carrie McPeters, also of Interim, will manage daily operations for the restaurant and market. Jason Jackson of local architecture firm brg3s designed the space and Jeff Hutzel is the general contractor.
This news is just the beginning of new things coming to Broad Ave. The Hampline will soon be constructed, which will link the west side of the Shelby Farms Greenline with the existing trail network within Overton Park.
