When it comes to reviewing restaurants, inspiration (or coincidence in some cases) can come from many sources. With regards to Alchemy, guess who/what inspired it. Word of mouth from friends? Nope. An online review? Nah. A chance encounter while on a temporary job assignment? Uh-uh. One of my favorite South Park characters? No. A beautiful and sexy waitress? Wrong. For this review, I owe it all to Chef. And no, it's not this guy, but rather Chef Jason Doty. Jason is the executive chef of Bluff City Bakery (sister company of Bluff City Coffee) who invited me to dinner after reading my last installment of The Battle of The Downtown Memphis Sliders. He wanted me to try Alchemy's Donnell Century Farms Beef Sliders featuring brioche buns from Bluff City Bakery. I had always intended to visit the restaurant, so I gladly accepted Jason's invitation.
