“I live in Bartlett and we seriously do not have something for brunch out here,” mentioned Williams of why she required to open up the restaurant. “I wished to carry this notion to the local community I live in.”
The menu will get started small, and grow in excess of the coming weeks.
Even though the menu will include things like all the standard breakfast fare, Williams and chef Christian Bledsoe have formulated lots of one of a kind choices.
A person dish Williams is primarily energized about is the Shrimp and Cajun Creole Egg Benedict. In lieu of an English muffin, this benedict is served more than a cheddar grits cake and topped with garlicky sautéed spinach and shrimp and crawfish in a Cajun roux.
In truth, Biscuits & Jams would not have any English muffins in the kitchen area. All other benedicts are served around biscuits.
“Our French Toast is wonderful,” she said, crediting the challah bread from Memphis baker Ricki’s Cookie Corner & Bakery for making their version so delicious.
Biscuits & Jams has also partnered with many other Memphis food artisans on menu goods.
Oatmeal is topped with granola from Memphis-dependent Nine Oat 1 Granola. A Breakfast Charcuterie Board showcasing biscuits, jams and bacon will come from a collaboration with Memphis charcuterie board caterer Feast & Graze. Millington farm Jones Orchard is supplying some of the fruit jams on the menu.

A Breakfast Burger will come topped with home-produced Whisky Bacon Jam and a fried egg. Fried Eco-friendly Tomatoes arrive topped with a savory and tangy pepper jam. Shrimp & Grits come topped with the restaurant’s signature roux.
The restaurant will at some point provide a brunch cocktail menu. Cocktail advisor Carmen Mitchell helped Williams build a menu of brunch-influenced mimosas, Bloody Mary’s and cocktails. “We will have a entertaining drink known as ‘Pep Me Up’ that is produced with Dr. Pepper and coffee,” stated Williams.
Williams is a person of the founders of Lure Fusion restaurant. Acknowledged for its from-scratch, more healthy versions of soul foods, Trap Fusion very first opened its doors in Whitehaven in 2019.
