Chef Mashama Bailey and her business partner, Johno Morisano, wowed the food world in 2014 when they opened fine dining restaurant The Gray in a converted Greyhound Bus station in Savannah, Georgia.

The next few years would bring glowing reviews from national media and a James Beard Award for the best chef in the Southeast for Bailey.

With their two new ventures, the Diner Bar and Gray Market, which both opened earlier this month in the Thompson Austin hotel at 506 San Jacinto Blvd., the partners and former longtime New Yorkers step out of Savannah for the first time in eight years.

The Diner Bar serves as a collection of some of the greatest hits from The Gray, serving technical but fun cuisine like foie gras and grits; seafood boudin; shrimp and Carolina Gold rice; and a lamb crepinette.
