Chef John began cooking at the age of five while standing on a stool in his great aunt’s kitchen. He has had the pleasure of cooking and serving guests for 35 years. His greatest joy is watching a guest take that first bite and their eyes widen and a smile spreads across their face. The chef’s formal training started with the University of Tennessee and then the Hilton training program and finally culinary school in Avignon, France. His second greatest pleasure is teaching/sharing with his culinary team to insure they become the next generation of great culinary artists. If you are in the restaurant and want something specially prepared, just ask. The chef loves to prepare special diets, special preferences or just something special for you.
You MUST eat here. Fresh, thoughtfully-prepared Italian cuisine, top-notch service, and beautiful atmosphere, all at a very reasonable price. Room for a large group but intimate enough for a romantic meal. Excellent!" Amanda Owenby Smith
Behind a modest storefront, deep in the heart of downtown Corinth lies Vicari, a rare Italian jewel. With quality ingredients, good, old-fashioned southern hospitality and exquisite attention to detail, Vicari has become a tradition for my family. It is a place we gather together with friends for special occasions, a nice night out or to simply unwind and enjoy a delicious meal after a long day of work. The vision of Chef John Mabry, the word "Vicari" has to us become synonymous with good food, supurb service and decadent desserts."Kimberly Shelton
