CA: Dixon getting new simple fast-casual restaurant by Adams, Joe
“Don’t expect to see the old African peanut soup from The Brushmark when Wally Joe and Andrew Adams open their new place later this month in the Dixon Gallery and Gardens. It turns out Joe didn’t like that soup at all (neither did I, though it had a loyal following, and I’m talking to you, Michael Donahue).
Joe and Adams will open a fast-casual restaurant in a space at the Dixon around the old gift shop, serving sandwiches, salads, soup, pastries and grab-and-go items.
(Acre is 690 S. Perkins, about a mile from the Dixon at 4339 Park.)
The two ran the Brushmark in the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art for years, but it was a full-service restaurant. At the new restaurant, orders will be placed at the counter and delivered to the table.
“It’ll be simple stuff, but everything will be made fresh daily by us,” Joe said.
The new place finally has a name, too: Park & Cherry, named for the cross streets, will be open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. when the gallery is open.”
