Celebrating 30 plus years in business, Michel Leny first opened Café Society in 1987! He was inspired by his father, Maurice Leny, a Chef at Maxim's in Paris. October 2007 welcomed new owner, Chef Cullen Kent, graduate of Le Cordon Bleu in Paris. In March of 2019 John Taylor stepped in as the new head chef and promises to bring many exciting new changes! Located in the heart of the beautiful Evergreen Historic District in Midtown Memphis, Café Society is affectionately known to many Memphians as simply Cafe and continues to be a favorite of many of its midtown neighbors.
