Book John O. Morisano & Mashama Bailey

Wondering how to book John O. Morisano & Mashama Bailey? Johno Morisano is the co-founder and Managing Partner of Grey Spaces, a group of restaurants and lifestyle and product offerings, headquartered in Savannah, Georgia. Morisano transitioned into restaurants in 2014 after a career in business when he, along with Co-founder and business partner Mashama Bailey, opened The Grey restaurant and, later, The Grey Market. At Grey Spaces, Johno oversees guest experience, business growth and strategy while Mashama, the Executive Chef, oversees all culinary creation and operations. Grey Spaces is opening additional restaurant locations in Austin, TX in Fall 2021 and an expansion is planned throughout the South over the next several years. Beginning in 2012, with the purchase of an abandoned Greyhound Bus Terminal in Savannah, Georgia, Morisano embarked on an entirely new career path which would take him into the world of restaurants and the national food scene when the Greyhound station became The Grey in 2014. In just a few short years, Morisano and Bailey went from a duo never heard of in the food world, to being important voices in the creation of exceptional guest experiences, foodways, and community and bridge-building related to race, class, culture and inclusion. Morisano has been actively engaged in philanthropy and not-for profit causes supporting a variety of organizations throughout much of his adult life. He has served as a governor and officer of the National Arts Club and United Nations Women. He currently sits on the boards of the Edna Lewis Foundation, an organization dedicated to preserving its namesake’s legacy in southern and American foodways, and Grey Matters Project, a community-oriented nonprofit he started in memory of a past team member at The Grey. Together with Mashama, he co-wrote Black, White and The Grey (Ten Speed Press/Penguin Random House), which explores the business partners’ challenges navigating race, class and culture while building businesses, relationships and community in the South. In 2019, in conjunction with Pulitzer Prize-nominated journalist Meg Coker, Johno co-founded The Current (www.thecurrentga.org), a nonprofit, investigative new bureau, covering Savannah and coastal Georgia. Mashama Bailey is the award-winning Executive Chef and co-founder of Grey Spaces, a group of restaurants, lifestyle and product offerings, headquartered in Savannah, Georgia. Together with Co-Founder and business partner Johno Morisano, she opened the critically acclaimed restaurant, The Grey, for which she was awarded the James Beard Foundation’s Best Chef Southeast award, followed by its all-day counterpart The Grey Market. Born in the Bronx, raised in Queens, and with maternal roots from Waynesboro, GA, Mashama attended grammar school in Savannah and first learned to cook at the hands of the women in her family – with grandmothers, aunts, and her mother. Her formal education includes the Institute of Culinary Education (ICE) in New York City and LaVarenne in Burgundy, France.
