Realize Bradenton fully debuts first video in Dine Bradenton series

At a culinary-focused discussion panel I attended last month, the first video in Realize Bradenton’s “Dine Bradenton” series premiered.

The discussion, attended by chefs, bakers and restaurateurs in Manatee County, ultimately asked, “How can we make the Bradenton area a culinary destination?” Read more about the discussion and suggested next steps.

The first video focuses in on four restaurants and two bakeries in Village of the Arts.

(Realize Bradenton would not provide the video to the Bradenton Herald that day, although it had already aired publicly. I’m still not clear on the rationale for that, but I’m not going to cry over spilled milk, either.)

I look forward to seeing the rest of the Dine Bradenton series. To explore inspections and search for Bradenton and Village of the Arts restaurants, check out
