We have followed Jose at every restaurant where he is the Chef from Chez Phillipe to Encore and now to River Oaks. He may have changed restaurants, but he hasn't changed his talent in preparing delectable dishes of food. The atmosphere doesn't equal Chez Phillipe or even Jose's former Encore Restaurant, but everything he prepares will satisfy the gourmand in you and will make you want to keep going back for more. He has some of his former staff from Encore with him, and they are just thrilled to follow him further east in Memphis. My wife and I travel over 100 miles to eat at Jose's restaurant. We only hope he doesn't ever move away from Memphis, although I'm sure his former home in Provence beckens him at times. Eating at gourmet restaurants is my hobby, and there isn't a better Chef in Memphis, Tennessee, than Jose Gutierrez.
