Getting to Know: Jimmy Gentry

P.O. Press Public House and Provisions, a new restaurant from chef Jimmy Gentry and sommelier Chris Thorn, will open this month on the Collierville Town Square. Gentry also owns Paradox Catering and Paradox Underground. We recently caught up with him to see what led the local chef to where he is today. We found out he does a spot-on impression of his former employer Erling Jensen and shares a love of big – and many – dogs with Jensen.
