Soul Fish Café plans to open two new restaurants in the Memphis area. The new locations are planned for Cordova, TN and Oxford, MS.
Soul Fish Café has four locations in the Mid-South including East Memphis, Germantown, Midtown Memphis, and Little Rock, AR. The restaurant is known for their catfish specials and their side items. The popular item at the Soul Fish Café is their fried catfish and their cornbread. Other items on the menu include Chicken, Shrimp, and Crawfish. The locations will open this spring. The Cordova restaurant will open on HWY 64 and the Oxford restaurant will open at Lamar Square in a new strip mall.
Gigi’s Cupcakes in Memphis will close for good. The restaurant filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Gigi’s had two locations in Germantown and Cordova. The company and the original Gigi’s location is based in Nashville. On January 6, the Memphis area locations filed for bankruptcy causing the stores to close. The bakery was known for cupcakes with over the top icing and designs. The company was sold to an affiliate in Ft. Worth, TX with no intention on reopening the Memphis area stores even with the mixed reviews with customers.
