Last Call for Thyme Bistro

If you’re a fan of Thyme Bistro in Yorkshire Shopping Center, you’ve got about 24 hours to get your fix.

The restaurant, located off Quince and Yorkshire in East Memphis, is closing after just over a year in business “due to many factors.”

The menu – prepared by Ciao Bella’s former Chef Rick Saviori – features locally grown ingredients that are prepared with international flair.

Thyme Bistro took over space formerly occupied by Jarrett’s, which operated for 15 years before shutting down in early 2010. Loeb Properties Inc., the landlord of the center, declined comment.

“We’re not in a position to comment on why other people’s businesses failed,” the longtime Memphis commercial real estate firm said.

A notice at Thyme Bistro announces the restaurant's planned closure.

MemFish, Thyme’s neighbor to the East, is sad to see the neighborhood-focused restaurant go.

“I’m not sure that our customer base was their target clientele, but I know their customers would come over here and look around,” said Amy Pratt, the store’s assistant manager. “We’re going to miss them. We don’t have any restaurants over here anymore.”

About 9,000 square feet of restaurant space is also available to the east of MemFish in Yorkshire’s end cap.
