The GreyBy: Hannah Lee Leidy
Helmed by award-winning partners Mashama Bailey and Johno Morisano, The Grey, Savannah, is a formerly segregated 1938 Greyhound Bus terminal they transformed into an essential American dining destination with a mile-long list of accolades. Bailey’s food is nothing but soulful as she offers her take on the city’s food based on personal experiences from her childhood. European wines and spirits pair nicely with the variety of seafood and meats Bailey is known to prepare. Diners are in for a dynamic eating experience here at The Grey. The menus vary depending on the region’s season and can even change during the course on an evening. Dig into robust soups to start, or try something from the sea with scallops and crawfish on the table. In the mood for something heartier? Try the beef and lamb entrees. Brunch serves savory favorites like thick sandwiches and omelettes. But those with a sweet tooth can relax with sweet pies and fruity house cocktails.
Black, White, and The Grey’s unique format—a balance of two intertwined, though at times disparate, perspectives—is perfectly emblematic of its authors, Mashama Bailey and John O. Morisano who share with us their experience writing the cookbook.
