Buon Cibo in Hernando, Mississippi

Chef Josh Belenchia's new restaurant Buon Cibo (Italian for 'good food') officially opens Tuesday, 3/15 in Hernando! Since it's only about 30 minutes away from Memphis, you should plan a little road trip this week so you can check it out soon.

Here's the scoop...we went to friends and family night at Buon Cibo last Friday night, and it's clear that Josh's pizzas, all inspired by and named for places in Mississippi, are amazing. The crust is medium-thin with a nice sourdough flavor. (I attempted to talk him out of the recipe, but he wouldn't budge. Shoot!)

The real treat is what's on top of the crust. We tried a few great pies, but the one that stood out to me was The Jackson, which sports caramelized onions and roasted sweet potatoes. The Jackson usually has bacon as well, but Josh kindly left it off of my pizza. There are soups, salads, and sandwiches, too, and Josh's wife Katie had spent Friday making the other kind of pies (chess, coconut cream; there's also a brownie and gelato sandwich).

Here's a little bit more about Buon Cibo, which will be open from Tuesday to Saturday.
