Sean and Susan and the whole Beach Bistro team received some lovely news this week. Zagat has just redone their rating system, changing from their years-old 30 point system to one of 5 stars. Beach Bistro received 4.9 in food, the highest Zagat rating in Florida, and one of only a handful in the country.
We first received this news Tuesday, from Good Day Tampa Bay on Channel 13.
Imagine our delight watching Russell Rhodes and Laura Moody discussing Beach Bistro with a reporter from New York, who told them, ‘Beach Bistro is the restaurant to go to.’ (See the video clip here.)
We are a team at Beach Bistro. This score reflects on everyone on the team, from those who arrive at 7:30 am to begin that day’s prep, to those who finish up in the wee hours each night – it’s the chef staff, the serving staff, those who clean and wash dishes, the day staff who organize the front of the house and answer phone calls and emails.
All of us here at Beach Bistro are grateful to all of you who come in to dine with us. Over the past 30 years, you, our customers, have become our friends and are as much a part of the Bistro family as all of us. Together, we all have a special little place perched on the edge of the Gulf of Mexico, where life’s moments like marriage proposals, anniversaries, birthdays, and graduations are celebrated, and where people come to relax and enjoy their favorite foods and wines with their friends.
To be recognized by Zagat in this way, is sort of like icing on the cake. We were having a great time with you already. We just have something new to celebrate with you now.
For the next little while, when you come in, just mention ‘4.9’ so we can share some bubbly together.
