A 2017 James Beard Foundation "Best New Restaurant" semifinalist, Saint Leo is inspired by owner Emily Blount’s dream of serving food the way her mother did—with generosity and attention to detail. Emily was born and raised in Northern California and spent over a decade in New York City before putting down roots in Oxford. Saint Leo combines Emily’s love of big city style and small town hospitality with the earthy simplicity of wood-fired Italian cooking. We are committed to sustainability, local purveyors, and the pleasure of eating delicious food in good company. At Saint Leo we believe that nothing is better for community than eating locally, from scratch, and in tune with the seasons.
