Big Bad Breakfast to Open Second Location

3 Jun

According to The Birmingham News, James Beard Award-winning chef John Currence is teaming up with Birmingham’s Fresh Hospitality Group to open a second location of his popular Oxford-based Big Bad Breakfast.

The new Big Bad Breakfast location should open late this year or in early 2013 in a former Movie Gallery location near the intersection of Alabama 119 and U.S. 280 in the Inverness area. The 3,200-square-foot building should seat about 120 diners.

Supporting a Sustainable Oxford

Part of what makes Oxford, Mississippi, so unique is the widespread feeling of support for local businesses. The new website http://www.FarmToMenu.com is the perfect testament to this ideal. Launched by Daniel Morrow (some of you may know him as the Oxford Music Snob), the site focuses on showcasing local growers and the restaurants in Oxford that help support them.

More and more we see a growing trend toward sustainability and the purchase of local ingredients. As Daniel points out, it’s not always easy to know who is supporting this movement, and even some restaurateurs may not fully understand how easy it can be to incorporate fresh, locally grown ingredients into their menu offerings.

Through the site FarmToMenu.com, local farmers and restaurateurs have the opportunity to post information, photos and videos about themselves. Consumers can then find exactly where to go if they’re searching for locally obtained meats and vegetables. It’s a site you’ll want to bookmark and revisit often as I’m sure it will continually be updated.

Some restaurants already listed in the directory include:

  • Ravine
  • Honeybee Bakery
  • Emileigh’s Table
  • Big Bad Breakfast
  • Tallulah’s Kitchen
  • Snackbar
  • Boure
  • Bottletree Bakery
  • Deli News

Big Bad Breakfast using recycled boxes

29 Aug

Bravo to Big Bad Breakfast for now using recycled carryout/to-go boxes! I hear so much about these and never see them being used by any of the restaurants I patronize. Finally someone is showing some love for the environment!
