Every week I post a miscellaneous article/review/blog that I have written in the past or an interview of an extraordinary individual.
This week’s Throwback Thursdays: Cuisine & Dining at Artisan Bistro.
Having the right breakfast in the morning does make a tremendous difference in your work. And I experienced this while I was dining at Artisan Bistro, which is located inside Ritz Carlton Hotel at Downtown Boston.
Instead of starting my day with a cold bagel and hot coffee (in the size of a paper cup) at either Starbucks or Dunkin’ Donuts, I decided to treat myself to a Three-Star quality breakfast.
The first time that I visited this venue was when I was just promoting for AfriQue Events; I was looking for a venue for Roy AfriQue to host a possible a cocktail/networking event. When I walked in, I assumed Artisan Bistro only served dinner and drinks. But when I took a quick glance at the menu, I soon realized that they also served breakfast and lunch. Seeing this, I then decided to come back the following morning and try their breakfast–and boy was it the best decision that I could have ever made!
This is the very comment I made, when I first sat down at Artisan Bistro that morning:
“To my left was a beautiful retired couple who were sharing their travel adventures with their waiter; To my right was a group of business professionals, sitting at a long table, discussing productivity over a cup of coffee; and to my center was an entrepreneur who was reading the newspaper while conducting business on his laptop with a traveling bag at his side.”
Being surrounded by a group of professionals and entrepreneurs was quite aspiring–it almost felt like a rite of passage. And the mental ease I experienced that morning, cannot be put into words. Ever since my dining experience at Artisan Bistro, I have been enjoying my morning breakfast there for the past eight months! My philosophy is this:
“If you are going to act like a business person, then you might as well eat like one!”
During my morning breakfasts at Artisan Bistro, I have ran into famous entrepreneurs like Mark Cuban (creator of Shark Tank) and athletic superstar David Ortiz (World Series MVP from the Red Sox)!
And so my breakfast of choice, if you do decide to come here, is: Raisin Bran Cereal w/ Mixed Berries. (It goes well with a morning newspaper)
With great food, comes great service. And I want to thank Artisan Bistro and their staff for their excellent food and service. Thank you Ivan, Byron, Robert, Judy, and to the rest of the morning staff for keeping me healthy and well taken care of!
