Mashama Bailey

The Grey

Mashama Bailey is the James Beard award-winning executive chef of the critically acclaimed The Grey restaurant, set in a former Greyhound bus terminal in Savannah, GA, as well as all-day counterpart The Grey Market. Since opening in December 2014, The Grey itself has earned a number of accolades, including being named one of TIME Magazine’s “The World’s Greatest Places” and a Food & Wine and Travel + Leisure World’s Best Restaurants , thanks in large part to Mashama’s flavorful dishes that highlight local and seasonal ingredients. With the premiere of Netflix’s Chef’s Table Season 6, Mashama became the first African American chef to star on the show. Prior to opening The Grey with owner Johno Morisano, Mashama served under the tutelage of Gabrielle Hamilton at New York City’s Prune.
