This week it was revealed that a longtime Overton Square restaurant tenant planned to move — slightly.
Golden India filed an application with the Shelby County Land Use Control Board to have a piece of property at 20 N. Cooper St. changed from its current residential zoning to accommodate a new, 2,900-square-foot restaurant. The site is immediately next door to Ballet Memphis.
If approved, the new Golden India location would be about a three-minute walk from its current home at 2097 Madison Ave. It's a small move geographically, but it's one that would take them outside the Overton Square parameters.
