Raven and Lily will closed the 21 - 23 for the Thanksgiving Holiday
After years of culinary training in France, in Charleston, South Carolina, and then under Memphis’ renowned Chef Erling Jensen, Justin Young and his wife, Amy, took the leap to launch in Oakland, Tennessee, in 2016. The couple originally met while working at La Tourelle, a once-acclaimed Memphis fine dining treasure — and this summer, during the month of their 13th wedding anniversary, a new restaurant location has the talented duo offering the ultimate family-owned experience.
When asked what was made in-house, the Chef happily replied, “We make everything but the ketchup! Heinz does just fine on that, so we let them handle it.” That’s right, they make everything from the burger buns to the salad dressings… even the ice cream is made in-house, and they do it all using fresh, locally grown ingredients! That’s a lot of homemade goodness.
“We’re grateful to the building owner who afforded us an outstanding opportunity to showcase our abilities to Collierville. Plus, our neighbors on the square have been super-supportive and kind. This is what we needed and what the owner of this space needed — it’s a nice match.”
