Talley's Is Coming to the Old Estilo Space

Posted By on Wed, Aug 12, 2015 at 1:19 PM

Fans have been waiting for a reveal ever since co-owners Jessica and Josh Bufford announced a new venture in the old Estilo space in the Village Shopping Center. Well, count that wait as over because Josh Bufford contacted me today to reveal some new details on their upcoming restaurant.

Named Talley's after Josh Bufford's great-grandfather, a Georgia farmer, the menu will be styled after what Bufford calls a "Meat and Three" cuisine. That's grilled, baked or fried meat accompanied by three vegetable sides, plus bread. To true believers in old, Southern cooking, this may be a familiar -- and comforting -- premise.

"This’ll be a from-scratch kitchen, like our others," Bufford says in an e-mail, "So we’ll be making all of our dishes in-house, including homemade desserts."

Bufford says the idea is to capture his memories of preparing, cooking and eating meals using food grown and harvested on his grandfather's farm. And that family emphasis will carry over into the prices and atmosphere, Bufford says, with special emphasis placed on kid-friendly dining.

As previously reported, the restaurant is shooting for a mid-September opening. In the meantime, you can check out the Buffords' other food ventures around town at Toast, Hutch Bar & Eatery and Shoryuken Ramen.
