Enjoy A | M Restaurant Group brings together childhood friends, award-winning Chefs, and born and raised Memphians Michael Hudman and Andy Ticer to create a group of six restaurants, each stemming from Italian roots and southern inspiration to create unique styles, personalities, and menus in their restaurants.
In 2008, after years of studying, traveling, and practicing the craft of cooking, Chefs Michael and Andy opened their first restaurant in East Memphis, Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen. Over the next five years, Hog and Hominy and Porcellino’s Cafe joined the family in Brookhaven Circle, with Josephine Estelle to follow soon after in New Orleans, Louisiana. In 2016, the restaurant group expanded within Memphis to the South Main Arts district downtown, opening Catherine and Mary’s in September. Just over a year later, the chefs opened their second downtown Memphis restaurant and their sixth restaurant overall, The Gray Canary, in January of 2018.
The Enjoy A | M Restaurant Group goal is to create unforgettable experiences, whether you’re enjoying a drink at one of our bars or celebrating the most special night of the year. We believe in service that greets you at the door and hospitality that caters to you throughout your experience. Our beverage program, lead by Nicholas Talarico and a talented group of bartenders, brings a creative list of craft cocktails and a wine list curated by our in house wine director Ryan Radish. Our food, always prepared with fresh, local ingredients, comes from James Beard Nominees Chefs Ticer and Hudman and the talented chef de cuisines, sous, and line cooks within our restaurants.
