M Waterfront Grille at The Village Shops on Venetian Bay

M Waterfront Grille Awarded Florida Trend’s 2020 Golden Spoon Award!

Florida Trend is an award-winning business magazine read by senior business executives, civic leaders, and government officials to learn what is happening throughout the state of Florida. Florida Trend covers business news, executives, industry analysis, regional news round-ups and executive lifestyle. Special features focus on travel, restaurants, innovation, research and technology, personal finance, law, and small business.

Continuing into their coverage on travel and restaurants, Florida Trend developed their Golden Spoon Awards over 50 years ago, which are one of the oldest and most coveted dining awards in the state. The magazine started the awards as a guide to executives traveling around Florida, which has grown to recognize the best places to dine in the state, demonstrated by consistency in high standards and longevity.

When questioned what is the standard to judge if a restaurant merits a Golden Spoon, Florida Trend answered that the “chief criterion is the food, made from top ingredients sourced carefully and prepared with imagination and authenticity from entrees to vegetables and breads. We and our readers also expect a setting that is well cared for and service that is knowledgeable and enthusiastic but not intrusive”.

The 2020 Golden Spoons were just released in the magazine’s December issue and eight Collier County restaurants, only 14 in all of Southwest Florida, were named among the top 100 in Florida, one of which was The Village Shops’ very own, M Waterfront Grille.
