The Crosstown Concourse is open and full of delicious restaurants. Below you’ll find a list of places to eat in the Crosstown Concourse.

Get this: if you live within 4 miles of the Concourse you can order online from Farm Burger, Saucy Chicken, Curb Market, Global Cafe or Pizzeria Trasimeno, they’ll deliver to your front door for free.

All the hours are subject to frequent change, so be sure to call ahead to confirm.

The Saucy Chicken

Get your chicken tenders, chicken wings, seafood, and po-boys with lots of sauces and sides. Most things come either grilled or fried, and everything is priced to please. This is located at the on the front of the building, or you can order online for free delivery ($15 minimum, 4 mile radius of the Concourse).

Open 11 a.m. – 3 p.m., Monday – Friday.

Lucy J’s Bakery

Get your fresh-baked breads, cookies, pastries, and cupcakes from Lucy J’s bakery. They pay a living wage and work to hire and train Memphians who are transitioning from experiencing homelessness.

I stopped by the other day and heard a guy with a beautiful French accent order croissants, and then I met one of the bakers, Aretha, as she was filling a chocolate cupcake with peanut butter filling. It smells great in their little nook, which is accessible from the front of the building or in the hallway between the West and Central Atriums.

While they aren’t a part of the delivery program, they do offer curbside pickup.

Hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 8 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Global Cafe

Global Cafe is like a mini international food court, where you can order from counters featuring Sudanese, Syrian, or Venezuelan cuisines. There’s also a full bar with beer and craft cocktails, too.

Everything I’ve tried there was delicious and reasonably priced. I also thought it was cool that they have speciality non-alcoholic drinks for each cuisine. Juan Viramontes is the bartender and creates mocktails like his super-fresh limeade in additional to alcoholic drinks—like the ultra-popular and eye-catching mangorita.

Hours: Tuesday – Friday, noon to 7:30 p.m. and Saturday 11:30 a.m. – 8 p.m. Available for online ordering and free delivery (within 4 miles of Concourse) or curbside pickup.

    One problem with many of the newer mom & pop places is that you cannot get anything decent to drink since Millennials think soda is from the fountains of hell. If they do sell soda it is sugared only or sweetened with Truvia or Splenda (yuck).

    I do not drink tea, do not like coffee, do not drink liquor, rarely drink wine or beer and hate water with any meal. I drink water every day, just not at meals. That leaves juice and soda- make mine a Diet Coke with NutraSweet.
