Paulette's, which has been operating successfully in Memphis for 42 years, recently moved its popular, award winning operation to the River Inn. It has been described by one reviewer as "A Memphis institution and for a very good reason". Paulette's is serving the same soups, salads, and entrees that have made it so well known throughout the mid-south for many years.

Once in Overton Square, now at Harbor Town, Paulette's is still the romantice Memphis icon. For a quiet romantic dinner with superb food and excellent service, you can't beat Paulette's. Top it off with an overnight stay upstairs in the River Inn, and you'll Paulette's breakfast on the house!!
