Arlington Heights, IL (PRWEB) May 19, 2010
Restaurant.com today announced that Phillips Seafood has been named the featured restaurant for May for the "Restaurant of the Month" program. The restaurant's history, reputation and commitment to fine food and stellar service all weighed into the restaurant's selection for the recognition program. Through the Restaurant of the Month Web page, site visitors can learn about the three generations of Phillips who work side-by-side to serve quality seafood. In addition, site visitors can access an exclusive recipe, learn about seafood dishes and discover other seafood restaurants throughout the country on the Restaurant.com program.
"Phillips Seafood is an establishment rooted in quality and tradition, serving guests not just a meal, but an experience," said Cary Chessick, Restaurant.com president and CEO. "Restaurant.com is honored to have Phillips Seafood on the program and we are excited to recognize and celebrate their excellence."
The Restaurant of the Month selection process is based on criteria including the restaurant's popularity with diners, high standards for service, unique cuisine, memorable ambiance, history and more. A family business established in 1956, Phillips Seafood Restaurants have become a tasty tradition in the Mid-Atlantic, serving more than one million diners every year. Phillips Seafood began as a one room "crab shack" in Ocean City, Maryland and has since evolved into nine critically acclaimed locations sought out by diners across the country.
Located in popular travel destinations along the Mid-Atlantic coast, such as Baltimore's Inner Harbor, Myrtle Beach, Washington, D.C., and Atlantic City, travelers planning summer getaways regularly include a visit to Phillips Seafood Restaurants as part of their vacation itinerary. In addition to its mass appeal, Phillips Seafood has notably invested in seafood sustainability efforts to ensure ethical fishing practices and secure a supply of quality seafood for future generations of diners.
"Guests come into our restaurants every year and tell us how they have been eating at Phillips Seafood since they were children. We take our role in their family traditions very seriously and consider it our duty to live up to and exceed their expectations," said John Knorr, , Chief Operating Officer of Phillips Seafood Restaurants. "Participating in the Restaurant.com program allows us to serve those long time guests better and reach new guests so they too can make Phillips a part of their own family traditions."
As part of the recognition as the Restaurant of the Month, Phillips Seafood is featured on the Restaurant.com homepage with a link that directs site visitors to the "Restaurant of the Month" Web page (http://www.Restaurant.com/Phillips). The Web page offers Phillips information such as Executive Corporate Chef Todd Weisz's recipe for Phillips Seafood's award winning crab cakes, along with a gallery of photos and a list of "fun facts" about seafood and the Phillips Seafood legacy. For example, Phillips Seafood Restaurants serve up over 80,000 pounds crab meat every year. In addition, Restaurant.com includes a search box of popular cities on the page so site visitors can search for local seafood restaurants and explore many other options in the Restaurant.com program.
"Restaurants are the social centers of our communities and the places where people create memories with those closest to them," said Chessick. "Phillips Seafood is an outstanding example of how a restaurant can attract diners from all over the country while celebrating its commitment to family traditions."
Throughout 2010, Restaurant.com is paying tribute to devoted customers, restaurant partners, clients, staff and community members through a series of 10 year anniversary activities. The Restaurant of the Month program continues the celebration. Phillips Seafood joins The Claddagh Irish Pub and Fior d'Italia as honored restaurants since the program's launch in March.
