In the News
We have been blessed for years with great publicity and "talk" about The Crown and about our products! We've been featured on the food Network's Bobby Flay's Food Nation, on Turner South, the Travel Channel and on CNN! Southern Living Magazine, Saveur, Bon Appetite, the New York Times and many other publications have done stories about our restaurant and about our products!
Come visit The Crown and taste what they are "talking about"!
"Good Food Does Get Talked About!"Saveur Magazine included The Crown in October's 2009 issue - Southern Glories on page 20!
We were one of six Mississippi restaurants featured and the words are: "The Crown - The Catfish Pate and Catfish Allison (a whole fillet grantineed in a scallion cream sauce) have kept this Indianola Restaurant going strong for 33 years!" Another article says "we even have Catfish Pate!
The June 2008 issue of Bon Appetit included The Crown Restaurant in their Mississippi Delta tour article, with a great description of our Catfish Allison and a picture of our Delta Fudge Pie! We’ve had guests come in with the magazine in their hands, and one group of ladies from Memphis planned an entire birthday celebration day around the article with lunch at The Crown!
The Travel Channel's Taste of America, with host Mark DeCarlo, debuted in June 2008 and continues to be shown! They were in Indianola to shoot the Mississippi Delta Show in August of 2007. It’s a wonderful show, full of fun and our great Catfish Allison, as well as yummy fried Catfish that Dr. Mike Montesi cooked for all of us to enjoy during the show taping!
