Belle Diner is a new lunch spot on the Downtown dining scene, but it's already making its mark, winning top honors in the October 2013 Battledish Memphis contest.
Chef David Johnson has created several inventive menu items. Daily lunch plate specials range from sautéed Gulf shrimp to beef brisket, country fried ribeye, and fish tacos. There is a wide variety of sandwiches available as well.
The focus is on Southern, home-cooked food. It's all made from scratch and served in a cozy atmosphere. Many of the ingredients are sourced locally.
