Owner Angele Mueller opened Tallahatchie Gourmet’s Oxford location in April 2017, joining the original location in New Albany. The restaurant features fresh seafood and Southern cuisine with a hint of Mueller’s New Orleans roots.
Popular offerings include shrimp and grits, gumbo, and salads. Mouth-watering appetizers include crab beignets, shrimp dip and shrimp maison. All salad dressings, chicken salad and pimento cheese are made fresh in-house. Daily specials include a “meat and three” plate lunch.
The room itself is shaped like Thacker’s home at Off Square Books: a long seating area with a stage at one end and a bar at the other. The spacious layout allows for entertainment and conversation to comfortably co-exist.
John Paul Keith has two new releases out; his latest solo CD, Heart Shaped Shadow, as well as a CD with the band he fronts with bassist/vocalist Amy LaVere, Motel Mirrors and their full-length debut, In the Meantime. Both discs are on Last Chance Records. Keith’s previous CDs include Memphis Circa 3AM (Big Legal Mess Records). That CD was produced by the late Roland Janes – longtime house guitarist and engineer for Sun Records.
John Paul Keith is an avid student of Memphis music history, appearing as a frequent contributor on NPR’s Beale Street Caravan. Keith’s radio experience also includes a stint as the bandleader of the Yalobushwhackers on The Thacker Mountain Radio Hour (2015-16).
Keith recently contributed a song to the new Don Bryant album on Fat Possum Records, Don’t Give Up on Love.
