Wine Weekend 2018 celebrates a culinary partnership between celebrity French chef and author, Bernard Guillas, and our very own Tyson Grant of Parkshore Grill
One of the established stars of Tampa Bay’s restaurant scene, Tyson Grant has established Parkshore Grill as downtown St. Petersburg’s premiere dining destination. Self-taught and widely traveled, with tours in Washington D.C. and the Turks & Caicos Islands, Tyson first won acclaim at The Grill at Feather Sound in Clearwater, where his vision for contemporizing American Cuisine won him the award for Best Chef of Tampa Bay in 2001.
Parkshore Grill, now in its 11th year of business, boasts the accredited Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for the 7th year acknowledging their well-versed wine list and collection as well as the Florida Trend Golden Spoon Award in addition to many other accolades of Best Contemporary Cuisine and Best Sidewalk Dining and having been awarded a third year run as Tampa Bay Magazine’s “Best Chef of Tampa Bay”. He has been appointed as a Chef Ambassador for Niman Ranch. The menu at Parkshore Grill reflects Tyson’s respect for our environment serving natural meats, sustainably caught fish and seafood and organic, local produce. Along with his wife Sommer, Tyson has created Zoe’s Edible Garden at All Children’s Hospital in memory of their daughter Zoe. Recently being appointed as a Chef Ambassador to the Deputy Mayor’s “Healthy St. Pete” initiative, Tyson uses the Garden as a tool to educate young kids about a healthy eating and where food really comes from.
While continuing in the successes of Parkshore Grill as St. Pete’s premiere steakhouse, Tyson has now established Parkshore Grill Catering, a full service catering business specializing in uniquely memorable and flavorful events all over the Tampa Bay area.
