Winter in the city is known for being a little grey but as of yesterday, it’s not just because of the weather. Downtown Savannah’s award-winning gem “The Grey,” helmed by Chef Mashama Bailey and John Morisano, begins a multi-week residency at INTERSECT BY LEXUS-NYC. The Grey, an homage to the changing face of Savannah with the brick and mortar location a former Greyhound bus terminal, has broken the mold for east meets southern cooking.
“We are so excited to share our style and perspective of Port City Southern food at INTERSECT BY LEXUS in our hometown.” -Mashama Bailey

With curbside dinging options more and more complicated, INTERSECT’S first-ever dine-away and delivery options will remind you of warmer days in a southern climate while safe at home. A rotating three-course menu, changing on a weekly basis, keeps things interesting.
The Grey is a love letter of sorts to the “Port City” Southern food of Chef Bailey’s youth combining the culinary history of her grandmother’s Waynesboro fare with her NYC-based upbringing.
After spending four years cooking at Prune, the renowned “New American” restaurant from Chef Gabrielle Hamilton, Bailey made a splash onto the food scene. As a semifinalist for the James Beard Foundation’s Best New Restaurant award The Grey and Chef Bailey have reputations for sensational food and cocktails that break the mold. Not to be missed, Chef Bailey was featured on Netflix’s Chef’s Table in 2019, subsequently becoming the first African American chef to star on the acclaimed show.
