Buzz around town is that Lee Cauthen, formerly of Downtown Grill, will be bringing McEwen’s on Monroe from Memphis to the former location of Waltz on the Square.
UPDATE 6/12: Just received additional info from a McEwen’s representative: The McEwen’s Oxford will not replace the downtown Memphis location nor will it be exactly the same as the Memphis restaurant. The Oxford location will offer a few dishes that have become McEwen’s signature items, but the owners will aim to create a menu that fits Oxford. The opening date will be sometime in July. Lee Cauthen will join Bert Smythe, John Littlefield and Stewart Wingate in the operation of McEwen’s Oxford.
UPDATE 7/20/11: McEwen’s will open Monday, July 25th.
