Osteria Tulia on 5th Avenue South Named to Hall of Fame
Naples, FL: (December 16, 2019) . . . Bha! Bha! Persian Bistro on 5th Avenue South in Naples has been honored with a Golden Spoon award, the top-dining honor given to only 100 restaurants throughout the state of Florida by Florida Trend magazine. The elegant, white tablecloth restaurant is the brainchild of Executive Chef and Owner Michael Mir, offering a blend of Indian, Middle Eastern, Thai and Mediterranean influences while emphasizing freshness and quality with comfortable indoor and outdoor seating in a stylish setting in the heart of Naples.
In addition, Florida Trend elected Osteria Tulia restaurant (also on 5th Avenue South in Naples) to its Golden Spoon Hall of Fame, specifically citing Executive Chef and Owner Vincenzo Betulia’s demonstrated consistency in high standards and longevity. Osteria Tulia serves classic Italian cuisine and fine wines in a rustic-chic farmhouse ambiance with simple, homemade local specialties and regional wines.
“Physical brick-and mortar venues matter even in today’s world of virtual reality, but it’s the activity along 5th Avenue South — Naples’ historic Main Street — that sets these restaurants up for success,” says Bruce Barone, Jr., executive director of the 5th Avenue South Business Improvement District. “5th Avenue South continues to attract and retain some of the country’s finest dining and shopping venues thanks to walkable high foot and vehicle traffic combined with unique restaurant concepts and ideal customers,” he adds.
The Golden Spoons have been a Florida tradition for more than 50 years. For a complete list of winners, visit floridatrend.com/goldenspoons.
