About the restaurant
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. "Their (dishes) deft presentation is imaginative, skillful and disciplined, elevating them above qualification as regional and ethnic cuisine."

About the restaurant
Recently named the Best Fining Dining Restaurant in Mississippi by Mississippi Magazine and located in the Fairpark District, Park Heights offers Chef Thomas Lester's menu including seared hanger steak, yellowfin tuna tartar, heirloom tomato caprese, prosciutto wrapped monkfish and prime cuts of beef. The main dining room, with its reclaimed hardwood floors and retro lighting, provides an atmosphere that is sophisticated without feeling formal. Often sited as the best in town, the service is professional and gracious, and the wine list is extensive. If you enjoy dining al fresco, try the rooftop or patio which have amazing views of downtown.

The redfish was excellent…it actually did not need the Romesco sauce. I also had he house salad which was delicious as well. Keep up the good work!

Great experience! Kirby, the manager, was so helpful and accommodating. Our server, Tara, was so lovely and knowledgeable. The food and drinks were so worth the 1.5 hour drive. Great vibes all around! Will definitely return! :)

We really enjoyed our visit to Vicari. It was our third time there. The food is always great. The service is very good as well. Great menu with a vast variety of protein options - seafood, chicken, steak, and pork. Wonderful pasta as well. Highly recommend Vicari for a romantic dinner or a family dinner as well.

About the restaurant
Giardina's, one of the Mississippi Delta's most historic restaurants, was founded in 1936 by Joseph Giardina, in Greenwood, Mississippi. A unique blend of sophistication and warmth, Giardina's is the perfect setting for any event. Seating consists of fourteen private booths and the large dining room opens onto a beautiful courtyard. The restaurant's interior space and state-of-the-art kitchen were designed by world-renowned architects. Considerable effort was made to retain the character and charm of the original Giardina's, but the white tablecloths and fine crystal add the feeling of elegance one would expect from a fine dining restaurant in a large metropolitan area. Giardina's bar, reminiscent of a bygone era, features the same dark wood and tile of the restaurant while offering today's premium liquors, wines and liqueurs. Featuring steaks, seafood and Italian cuisine, Giardina's atmosphere is old world elegant but dress is laid-back "Delta casual.”
