Chef Stephen Jones is currently filling our bellies with a multitude of foods from his three different concepts located inside Desoto Central Market. A concept that was not something many people understood or still understand but one that we can all get behind. Desoto Central Market is a beautiful large space that has plenty of room to work, socialize and enjoy a drink or some food. What kind of food do they have there? They have quite a few options, you can walk around and decide which place you want to try today and then go back tomorrow and try another and another and so on. The Larder + The Delta serves Southern Style dishes for lunch, dinner and brunch. Walrus and The Pearl will satisfy your cravings for fresh fish. DCM burger is going to hit the spot when it comes to juicy burgers and crispy french fries and then head over to the bar and grab your favorite libation to wash it all down.
I should have asked Chef Jones where the best place to get veggies is because he loves his veggies. I also know he loves his fernet branca, what the hell is that you ask? Oh, well maybe I’m the only one that asked that but after hanging out with Chef for quite some time, I no longer need to wonder. The other thing we no longer need to collectively wonder is where you can find Chef Jones drinking said drink or maybe tossing back a few other cocktails. Here’s his list of favorite places to imbibe, in no particular order.
