The Jackson, MS based steakhouse with a piano bar, Char, will be opening a new Memphis location at 431 S Highland in October.

Char will be open seven days a week for lunch and dinner, and Sunday brunch at 431 S. Highland Street.

The menu will include a mixture of high-quality steaks and fresh seafood, including award-winning crab, shrimp and andouille gumbo, fried green tomatoes, and chicken and waffles.


The 6,900 square foot space will seat 220 and feature an open floor plan, high ceilings, large windows, two private dining rooms and a luxe lounge designed by Anna Cardona of Ledford Engineering. Char’s stylish atmosphere will accommodate both business lunches and family brunch.Char Logo

Owner Ben Brock brings Char to Memphis along with a team of top hospitality partners, including Doug Hogrefe, David Conn and Paul Schramkowski. Together, the group owns 11 restaurants in Tennessee and Mississippi. Their previous eateries include the original Char in Jackson, Mississippi, and the Italian restaurant Amerigo.

Brock has already appointed Char’s managers, but those interested in a position in the 75-person staff should email general manager Andrew Fischer at

Char will be one of several restaurants moving into the Highland Row space, near the University of Memphis. The walkable area will include luxury apartments, restaurants, and shops.
