A series of three pop-up dinners are scheduled this fall to kick off the opening of Saint Leo, a new restaurant founded by Oxford resident Emily Blount, who is collaborating with chef Dan Latham (formerly of L&M's). They plan to bring simple, seasonal Italian fare to Oxford, including wood-fired pizzas, house-made pastas, and small plates made with locally sourced ingredients.
A brick-and-mortar location is slated to open early next year, but until then, get your pizza and pasta fix at our preview dinners!

Artist Lunch Trays
The Motel Art Show in partnership with St. Leo & the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council is offering a new opportunity to artists as part of the 2015 show. Each year the Motel Art Show features artists who transform rooms at the Ole Miss Motel into mini galleries and exhibit spaces. Artist participation is limited by the number of hotel rooms.
This year the show will feature a preview event offering advance admission (and sales) to those who purchase the preview ticket. The ticket includes a cocktail tasting sponsored by Cathead Vodka, Tasting Menu by St. Leo Food Truck on an artist created lunch tray, and early access to all the rooms.
The lunch trays, just like the ones from school, are available to any artist. This expands the number of artists who gain exposure during this popular event. The Arts Council is encouraging artists to include their contact information, websites, and social media links so the buyers can discover more about the artist who created their tray. The trays will be sold for $10 with the artist receiving 75% ($7.50), and the remainder donated to the Arts Council to support their community grants.
