You may see the name GRIT and picture a treasured staple of Southern food, but study the blackboard along the back wall of GRIT Taylor and you will find another definition:
Grit in psychology is a positive, non-cognitive trait based on an individual's passion for a particular long-term goal or end state, coupled with a powerful motivation to achieve their respective objective…
Husband-and-wife owners Nick Reppond and Angie Sicurezza take both definitions to heart. At GRIT, they offer sophisticated Southern cuisine with a passion for tradition and experimentation. Nick recreates dishes from his grandmother’s table in Memphis, while incorporating bold flavor combinations from Old World and international cuisine. Guests can find comfort in familiarity while opening their minds to exciting new flavors.
Nick and Angie have made their mark on Oxford’s restaurant scene as veterans of the City Grocery Restaurant Group and as owners of their own company, A&N Catering. The couple now calls Taylor home. GRIT is committed to instilling that sense of home through friendly service and impeccable, locally sourced dishes, offset by the welcoming atmosphere of Taylor’s Plein Air neighborhood. GRIT also honors Taylor’s vibrant arts community, acting as a gallery space for local artists.
Whether driving in from Oxford or Taylor, or coming from farther away, guests can cozy up to a table at GRIT (or enjoy a delicious signature cocktail at the bar) and feel perfectly at home.
