Monsieur Demarcus French Crêperie Moving to Midtown



Demarcus Woodard
Monsieur Demarcus French Crepêrie is moving from its location in Victorian Village downtown to a new spot on Madison in Midtown.

Owner Demarcus Woodard says that ongoing concerns about the condition of the building, particularly a leaky roof, have prompted the move.

The restaurant opened last fall in the old site of the Neely's barbecue restaurant at 670 Jefferson. The new restaurant is at 1329 Madison near Cleveland, in the former Southern Belle space.

Woodard says there will be seating for about 20 to 30 in the new location and that he is currently busy re-creating the old restaurant's black-and-white decor and French ambience for the new site. He thinks the new space will be open in two weeks or so.

Woodard says that the menu, which focuses on both sweet and savory crepes, will stay mostly the same, but that the new spot on Madison will be more casual, with an eye toward drawing students at nearby schools. Price points will be lower as well.

According to Woodard, the Crêperie had two sets of diners, younger folks looking for a good deal, and those coming for the cuisine. He's aiming to satisfy both at the new restaurant. At the same time, he's been looking at another space in East Memphis for a fine dining restaurant.
