OCTOBER 19, 2019

Take a seat at our dinner table set for 1,000 this fall. The Central Gardens Association and Edible Memphis are hosting the inaugural Dinner in the Gardens: an extravagant neighborhood dinner experience that aims to launch conversations and create connections among attendees to help propel our city into its third century.











Join us for dinner in Central Gardens! We’re saving your seat!

The Central Gardens Association (CGA), in partnership with Edible Memphis, is hosting the inaugural 1,000+ person, farm-to-table Dinner in the Gardens on Saturday, October 19, from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m.


We welcome the greater community to join us on “the front porch” of our neighborhood. One long dinner table will be set up along Belvedere between Peabody and Glenwood Place. 


We see this gathering as an opportunity to launch conversations and create connections among attendees. We also hope that Dinner in the Gardens serves as a model for other dinners in neighborhoods throughout Memphis. 


Chefs Spencer McMillan (Caritas Village), Miles Tamboli (Tamboli’s Pasta and Pizza), Spencer Coplan (Wok’n in Memphis), Phillip DeWayne (Park & Cherry) and Kat Gordon (Muddy’s) each will present a course. (There will also be a little treat from Phillip Ashley. Shh!) We are working with Project Green Fork and local farms to highlight ingredients from within a 250-mile radius of Memphis. 


Old Dominick will provide a welcome cocktail. Beer, wine, soft drinks and water will be served with dinner. 


Tickets are $200 each. (Discounted tickets are available to new CGA members.) VIP tickets for groups of 10 are $2500.


The rain date is Sunday, October 20.
