The Hen House Wine Bar hires new chef Cole Jeanes: Memphis restaurants

The Hen House Wine Bar has a new chef. Memphian Cole Jeanes has taken over the helm of the kitchen at this popular East Memphis wine bar.

Hen House owner Michaela Dockery said she is excited to have Jeanes on her team. “He worked with us for a few months, and we quickly noticed the beautiful detail with everything he did,” she said. “You can truly taste his passion for food — it’s in every dish.”

Jeanes comes to The Hen House, 679 S. Mendenhall Road, from Comeback Coffee, where he developed its food program and worked as its chef. Prior to that, he had been the chef de cuisine at P.O. Press Public House & Provisions in Collierville. He quickly became known for the cake-like herb biscuits he baked for P.O. Press’ brunch. Those same biscuits had been the foundation for Kinfolk, a small food stand Jeanes ran in South Main Market before it closed.

Dockery said Jeanes’ menu focuses on locally raised ingredients and partnerships with local food artisans. “It’s the vision I had for the menu originally,” she said.

“What you will see is a lot of straight-from-the-farm ingredients. What’s in season,” said Jeanes. “I like to get out of the way of the ingredients. Whatever comes from the farm, we let that ingredient shine.”
