When we started with the first award in August 2018, we never thought we'd make an impact. It was just a way to get people focused on a "simply amazing" dish at one of Georgetown County's restaurants.
But, with one year of the Simply Amazing Dish of the Month under our belt, it's become paramount in Georgetown County dining.
Dan Axelson of City to City Apparel, who created our logo, took my brainstorming and designed the award logo and postcard placard with inscription. We also had stickers made so the restaurants can place on their door or windows. We decided one card and two stickers would be given to a winner.
The first award was handed out to bisQit in Pawleys Island. That Carolina Burger still has us drooling.
We then decided after a few months of handing out the award we needed something to showcase the dish. Hats off to chef Kevin Levine at Scatori's Pizzeria & Italian Restaurant. He creates awesome cutting boards. His business is Hot Bloxx Cutting Boards and he heard about what we were doing and donated a board with our logo to us to provide some pop to the award winners. We started using the cutting board in January 2019. You can see below what a difference it has made.

Enjoy, folks. We sure do.
