Grecian Gourmet Taverna to close its Downtown Memphis restaurant

The Grecian Gourmet Taverna will shut the doors at its South Main Street restaurant on Nov. 23. The restaurant owners made the announcement Tuesday in a social media post.

“I want to start off by saying that we love South Main and Downtown Memphis, there is no area or neighborhood with the soul and support like what we have Downtown,” Corinne Knight said in the post. “This restaurant has been a second home since signing our lease in December of 2017, and we have made the very difficult decision to unfortunately not resign for another five years.”

Knight cited how COVID-19 was hard on everyone, but especially the small businesses that survive on local business lunch and tourism, neither of which has yet rebounded to pre-pandemic levels.
