Saint Leo, a simple and stylish restaurant serving artisanal wood-fired pizza, rotisserie chicken, seasonal salads, and other offerings, will open in Oxford, Mississippi, in early 2016. The eaterys team is owned and headed up by Oxford local, Emily Blount.
Saint Leos menu will highlight the purity and simplicity of beautiful ingredients, locally sourced and thoughtfully prepared. A wood-burning, Acunto Mario oven imported from Italy is the focal point. Wood-fired pizzas from naturally leavened, from-scratch dough will be topped with housemade mozzarella and ricotta cheeses and the regions freshest produce and meats. Salads will change often to showcase the best of the season, and most of the small plates and entrees will be finished in the wood-fire oven. Rotisserie chicken will round out the offerings for takeout or dine in. For a sweet finish, small batch ice cream complements other from-scratch desserts.
