Coming Late Fall 2023
Eudora’s Mississippi Brasserie will serve a variety of dishes with an emphasis on many Southern favorites with an elegant twist.
“My family and I are excited to bring this new concept to Jackson,” said Tyler Alford, Operating Partner at Eudora’s Mississippi Brasserie. “I have had a wonderfully fortunate career that has taken me all over the country working inaward-winning restaurants and with incredible mentors and colleagues. Jackson though, is where my family and I are ready to put down roots and grow with the community through Eudora’s, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have this opportunity.”Alford most recently was the President of the hospitality group overseeing the award-winning Copper Whiskey Bar & Grill and Brigade Restaurant in Montana and has previously served as Vice President of Operations and Beverage Director opening 12 locations for Tupelo Honey, which is based in Asheville, North Carolina with over 24 locations across seventeen states. Prior to that, he was the Bar Manager at Commander’s Palace Restaurant, a New Orleans staple. Alford is also no stranger to Jackson; he attended Millsaps from 2003 to 2005 where he also played on the football team for two seasons.
Eudora’s, whose name pays homage to beloved Mississippi author, Eudora Welty, will be located in the space previously occupied by Fine and Dandy. The menu will follow a seasonal pattern, and many of the ingredients will be sourced from local farmers, when available. The cocktail menu will feature specialty beverages along with timeless classics like Manhattans, Palomas, and Mint Juleps.
Eudora’s Mississippi Brasserie will begin construction and renovations in the coming months and plans to open to the public this fall (2023).
