Folk's Folly, Memphis' original (and only local) prime steak house, is our family favorite. It's where we savored my final meal in Memphis before heading off to college, and it's where we have celebrated too many birthdays among the five of us to count. It is where I can count on a fabulous filet a la duxelle (butterflied with a rich mushroom demi glace) or classic lobster tail (candle-lit butter and all). It's where I most appreciate Memphis' fine southern hospitality.
Next door's prime cut shoppe has always been fueled by the legacy of founder Humphrey Folk. Only now, he's at the forefront of the picture. The new name proudly reflects off of the redesigned retail space, where you can take the same filet from the Folk's Folly dining room to your own dining room. Or, if not for your home, for someone else's.
Humphrey's offers fresh (never frozen) prime cuts for overnight delivery anywhere in the Continental United States. Yes, that means you can ship to any relative or friend! Every recipient receives a finely crafted packaging suite (hand-signed by the butcher) with cooking instructions and the works.
If you're still in need of a Christmas or Hanukkah gift, and you're past the standard shipping deadline, take a sigh of relief. You've got Humphrey's. Your friends and family will not forget this fine gesture of quality, thoughtfulness, and hospitality, especially compared to generic, go-to gift ideas. Take my word for it. Order now.
