Fino’s Lives! Iris Restaurant Group To Reopen Our Beloved Sandwich Heaven

Posted by Holly Whitfield | March 1st 2019 3942 0

It’s happening.

Fino’s is alive, at least the midtown location.

From the release:

“Kelly English and the Iris Restaurant Group (Restaurant Iris, The Second Line, Magnolia House, Iris Etc.) have purchased the Fino’s brand from former owners. Fino’s will open back up at the original location on the ground level of the Gilmore apartments (corner of McLean and Madison) on April 2. The team plans to keep the Fino’s classic menu, as well as add a few creations of their own. 

One major addition will be Fino’s offering breakfast and coffee. Breakfast originals will be served each morning, including breakfast sandwiches. “

There are no plans to renovate or change the location currently, so it will be that sweet, sweet Fino’s From The Hill we all have known and loved for many years.

Iris Restaurant Group will not be purchasing the East Memphis location, so that one’s still up in the air.

    The thought of a Kelly English, NY style breakfast sandwich makes me weep tears of joy. Now I have no reason to ever go back to NY. Well, except my family, I guess, but whatever.
