Appetizers before Dinner: 5:30 pm

Folk’s Folly

—Best Steak winner, Best Business Dinner winner—

It’s been over 35 years since Humphrey Folk opened his restaurant “folly” in East Memphis, and today the Folk and Boggs families make sure that the traditions of Memphis’ finest steakhouse remain very much alive and well.  But even if you’re having dinner someplace else nearby, be sure to stop by the piano lounge and enjoy one of this restaurant's distinctive appetizer creations. You absolutely cannot go wrong with the stuffed mushrooms, the catfish beignets, or the Famous Fried Dill Pickles (complimentary in the bar). What's not to love?  And nowhere else in town can you find Charlotte Hurt tickling the ivories in her own inimitable style. Charlotte is as much a Memphis institution as Folk’s Folly itself, and you’ll find her there playing jazz and Broadway classics most every weeknight. It's a perfect way to end a workday.   – Kenneth Neill
