Bari Ristorante e Enoteca is the city’s only Southeastern Italian restaurant and wine bar. Creating the regional cuisine of his family, Chef Jason Severs’ renditions of antipasto, salads, meats and seafood, over 50 Italian cheeses, plus homemade pasta, bread, and desserts, give diners a true taste of this Italian Region. Whether you order a multi-course meal like they do in Italy, or only one or two dishes, you will love the simplicity and freshness of Bari’s food and excellent Italian wines. The Enoteca is open an hour before and after the dining room, offering and extensive all-Italian wine list.

The Great Story Of Our Culinary Journey

Nearly eighteen years ago, my husband Jason Severs and I decided to open a restaurant in Memphis at the same time we decided to get married. After three years of planning and looking for the perfect location our dream was finally realized. My husband’s family is from Capurso, Italy. It is a small town outside of Bari, Italy, which is the capital of Puglia. We decided we wanted to preserve his family’s culture and shed some light on this particular region in Italy, even though we knew that we would be misunderstood by some but loved by many. We are very fortunate to be able to do what we love for a living.
