Saint Leo, Oxford, MS

Southern hospitality meets big city flair at Mississippi hot spot Saint Leo, a 2017 James Beard Best New Restaurant Award semifinalist. This hip Italian bistro known for its wood-fired cooking and locavore sensibility was inspired by owner Emily Blount’s mother’s warmth, generosity, and attention to detail as a home cook and host.
