Bon Ton Café to Open Wednesday

After a four-year hiatus, Downtown Memphis’ Bon Ton Café will reopen Wednesday, Sept. 19, at 7 a.m.

The restaurant at 150 Monroe Ave. has had trial runs this past week with friends and family. The soft opening to the public Wednesday will include breakfast and lunch, as a dinner service will be added “further down the road,” said Bon Ton manager Patti Bancroft.

Bon Ton has been closed since 2008, when then-owner Sam Zambelis died. The more-than-a-century-old space is still owned by the Zambelis family and includes two levels – 7,000 square feet on the ground level and a 3,500-square-foot space upstairs.

The restaurant will be run by Tommy Peters, president of Beale Street Blues Co., which operates B.B. King’s Blues Club and Itta Bena.
