South Walton's scrumptious six Golden Spoons

Published: Friday, December 13, 2013 at 09:03 AM.

In 15 years of operation, this is the eighth Golden Spoon for Vin'tij. Partner and Manager Todd Reber and Chef John Jacob opened Vin’tij in 1998. Reber attributes the restaurant's success to Chef John and the consistent good quality food.

Debbie Earles, co-owner of Grayton Bar & Grill, said they are honored to win their award in the restaurant's first year of operation and attributes the success to good food and hard work by the restaurant's team.

This year, less than 100 restaurants received Golden Spoons; only 15 were recognized as Best Brands, and only 31 are in the Hall of Fame.

Best Brands are multi-unit operators that put good food first, much like the Golden Spoons, said Sherman.

Hall of Fame restaurants are chosen from repeat winners of Golden Spoons, and Best New restaurants are less than two years old, again food forward.

"They demonstrate new and bright ideas in the dining scene," he said.
