Tallulah’s Kitchen received it’s brown bag license this week, meaning you can now bring the alcoholic beverage of your choice along with you when dining on the restaurant’s outdoor patio on University Avenue.
During the month of June, Tallulah’s Kitchen is offering $1.00 off any plate for students who show their student ID when placing an order. If you can’t use those things for discounts, what are they good for, right?
While you’re there, check out the new vegetable garden that just went in and watch for the debut of the Tallulah’s Kitchen website coming soon at www.tallulahskitchen.com.

Don’t be alarmed when Catfish One and Tallulah’s Kitchen close at the end of this week. Tallulah’s Kitchen will be reopening; Catfish One officially closed the window of its Oxford location this past Saturday.
Below is the official word from Tallulah’s Kitchen owner Laurie Stirratt (taken from the Tallulah’s Facebook page):
“Starting this Tuesday, Tallulah’s will be the sole operator out of the Catfish One Kitchen. The Oxford Catfish One store is officially closing their doors on Saturday February 6th at 8:00 PM. We will be open Tuesday-Thursday from 11AM-4PM and Friday-Sunday 11AM -8PM this week. We will then close to regroup, retool the menu just a bit and change over the space officially. Tallulah’s official grand opening will be on March 1st. We will still serve our present menu but will add some new entrees and bring back some old ones, too. I will post a menu for the official grand opening when it’s complete. I want to thank everyone for their continued support. I have big plans for the spring and summer! Come see us next week and keep in mind our March 1st official grand opening.”
Catfish One is now sharing its kitchen with Tallulah’s Kitchen, the brainchild of Laurie Stirratt.
According to Tallulah’s Facebook page, found here, Tallulah’s offers fresh and delicious home style recipes made from scratch everyday. (Catfish One’s fried seafood and chicken will still be available every day.)
