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."

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.

It would help if the music was lower so you can have a conversation.

Greenwood
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.”

We had a lovely lunch for three. Service was slow to start, but once we got going with our drink order, the rest was perfectly timed. Seared scallops over charred corn salad was perfectly prepared - the other two diners had no complaints either. The turtle cheesecake shared three-ways was delicious and just the right size.
