Early on the scene of the Oxford town square revival, City Grocery has become a landmark in the Oxford dining scene. Exposed brick walls and heart pine plank floor augment the candle light and white linen staging some the most inventive and interesting food in the South.
In 2009, we became Oxford’s neighborhood restaurant and living room. The Southern Brasserie, opened by James Beard award winning Chefs John Currence and Vishwesh Bhatt prides itself on using local Mississippi ingredients whenever possible.
Housed in the old Leslie’s Drug Store/ Downtown Grill building on the historic Oxford, MS Square. The newly renovated space is home to the “Up-scale Down-home” fare of Bouré. Decidedly Creole in its overall scope, the restaurant isn’t easily labeled.
Big Bad Breakfast
The brainchild of James Beard award-winning chef John Currence, Big Bad Breakfast gives the proper respect to “the most important meal of the day.”
