Saint Petersburg, Fla. (January 5, 2018) Since 2005, BellaBrava has been satisfying Floridian’s and tourists’ Italian food cravings, and now the Best of the Bay award winning restaurant is offering patrons a chance to feature their own Italian recipe on the BellaBrava menu.
BellaBrava’s Numero Uno Italian Recipe Contest is currently accepting submissions until January 31, 2018 online at www.bellabrava.com/numerouno to find the best Italian appetizer, entrée or dessert recipe. Ten semi-finalists will receive a $50 gift card to BellaBrava; three finalists will be chosen to compete to see whose dish will be granted the title of Numero Uno.
The final three dishes will be judged in a cook-off by BellaBrava’s Executive Chef Jeffrey Jew, as well as local judges, St. Pete Mayor Rick Kriseman, Deputy Mayor Kanika Tomalin and St. Petersburg Foodies writers Kevin Godbee and Lori Brown.
The winner will receive a dinner for four at BellaBrava, featuring his/her dish, as well as having their dish featured on the BellaBrava menu for three months with full credit given to the winner. Two runner-ups will receive a $100 gift card.
Parent Company 2BHospitality President Thomas Sanborn said, “Our founders established BellaBrava after traveling the hills of Tuscany and sampling the best cheeses, pastas, herbs, meats, seafood and pizzas in the world. After 13 years of loyal patrons sharing our love for Italian cuisine, what better way to honor them than by featuring one of their family recipes for all to enjoy.”
Interested participants have until January 31st to submit their recipes through a form on http://bellabrava.com/numerouno/. For reservations at BellaBrava, call 727-895-5515.
BellaBrava: New World Trattoria is where our vineyard-lined dreams have come alive! We are overjoyed that the community has embraced us as the Italian Trattoria of Downtown St. Pete since moving to Beach Drive in 2010. Less formal than a ristorante, the service is casual, the prices remain low, and the emphasis is on a steady clientele rather than haute cuisine. BellaBrava has become one of the most popular and iconic restaurants on St. Petersburg’s Beach Drive.
