When it comes to using the Internet, many local restaurateurs are Luddites, clueless about the power of online resources to draw attention to their ops. Many still struggle to even add menus to their Web sites, let alone highlight weekly specials or other news.
But Bob Niemojewski is ahead of the computer-illiterate pack. The chef-owner of Avon’s Nemo Grille, Niemojewski grabs me by my tastebuds every Friday morning, when I open my in-box to find his weekly email, a sort of foodie-porn flyer filled with luscious photos of the weekend specials. ...
I’m talking mouthwatering, full-color close-ups of voluptuous stuffed banana peppers, say, or a pair of bronzed pork chops, peeking out from behind a veil of mustard cream. Other than a link to the restaurant’s website, that’s about it for content; yet, the mailing never fails to rev up my appetite for the weekend’s feastings.
Wanna ogle them yourself? Sign up for Nemo’s weekly email on the restaurant's Web site
. Better yet, check out the models personally, at 36976 Detroit Rd. in Avon. (Call 440-934-0061 for reservations.)
Incidentally, former chef Mike Turcola has long since turned in his toque, and Niemojewski has taken over culinary duties. Still, if you want to take a peek at our slightly outdated 2003 review, click here.
