The Delta

FOOD & DRINKS | booth# PATIO15

Wicker Park restaurant and cocktail bar The Delta is an ode to the food, beverage, and culture of the Mississippi Delta. This region is said to begin in the lobby of the Peabody Hotel in Memphis, Tennessee, and stretches due south, ending at Catfish Row in Vicksburg, Mississippi. The Delta specializes in Mississippi "red hot" tamales and craft cocktails. 

Owner Eldridge Williams, a Memphis native, grew up eating "red hot" tamales, and his father even worked at a tamale factory when he was a child. “Opening The Delta was my chance to showcase something that’s far bigger than food and beverage,” Williams said. “The Mississippi Delta is a region that was once responsible for most of the country's cotton supply. A region that impacted and shaped the Civil Rights movement. A region that’s a melting pot of African, Mexican, Chinese, and Italian cooking styles. A region that’s known for being the birthplace of the blues. At the Delta, we want to channel everything from the sweaty juke joints to catfish and Mississippi red hot tamales while also pulling inspiration from the swanky hotel bars and restaurants in Memphis. We have a responsibility to honor and respect the culture and history of the Mississippi Delta and showcase our interpretation of its true form."
