Bonefish Grill Places First for Quality in 2016 Consumers’ Choice Awards

Seafood Favorite Reels In Top Restaurant Honor

(Tampa, FL – January 22, 2016)   The fresh fish experts at Bonefish Grill received the top honors for food quality in the 2016 Consumers’ Choice Awards announced by Technomic this week. The awards are based on consumer surveys that rate more than 120 leading U.S. restaurant chains on more than 60 different attributes as part of an ongoing study recording almost 100,000 consumer visits annually.

Bonefish Grill was designated a food quality “Pillar of Excellence” as the winner in the full-service restaurant category.  The survey is part of Technomic’s Consumer Brand Metrics program designed to capture the consumer experience from every angle, from the quality of the food to the overall brand reputation.

Since its inception, Bonefish Grill has been known for its variety of innovative dishes and specials, from seafood to meat selections, featuring seasonal choices, the highest quality fresh ingredients and offerings.

“We rely on customer feedback when we develop our menus, so we are especially honored to receive the 2016 Consumers’ Choice Award,” says Gregg Scarlett, President of Bonefish Grill.  “It proves the success of our focus on freshness and creativity that are always at the center of the Bonefish Grill dining experience.”

Bonefish Grill consistently receives accolades from consumers and the restaurant industry.  Nation’s Restaurant News (NRN) has named it a #1 Consumer Pick for Seafood for the past three consecutive years, as the highest ranked of all seafood restaurants.

NRN also bestowed its prestigious MenuMasters Award to Bonefish Grill in 2015.  This coveted award recognized the restaurant’s new innovative, guest-inspired menu featuring Seafood, Steaks and Chops, Bowls, Signature Sauces and Deluxe Sides.  The annual MenuMasters Awards recognizes outstanding dedication and achievement based on menu innovation, unique use of ingredients, unusual cooking methods and menu extensions.

Elissa Wood Photography

Suite 305
Johnson City, TN
Elissa Wood


Welcome! My name is Elissa and I have had a camera in my hand for the better part of the past 40 years. I took a leap of faith in 2006 and made a midlife career change to professional photographer.  I eventually discovered my passion for styled beauty/editorial photography and boudoir in 2010 and that's when the magic began to happen!

I love what I do. My goal when working with clients is to not only creative artistic portraits, but also create a transformation in how people see themselves.  We all have our hang ups about our age, our size/shape, or some other aspect of ourselves we find imperfect. A lot of us hate how we look in photographs. I want to change that if I possibly can. Everyone should have at least one portrait of themselves they love.


Most portrait sessions take place at our private, full-service studio in Johnson City, Tennessee. We're located on the third floor of a quiet office/retail building. Our loft-like suite has high ceilings and beautiful natural light. The space is easily transformed to create many different looks with a full array of studio lighting and backdrops. Location, outdoor, and destination photo shoots are also available.


The studio is located in the Northridge Centre complex at 3119 Bristol Highway in Johnson City, Tennessee. It's not far from the intersection of State of Franklin Road and I26. From the front of the building, look for the main entrance under the awning beside of Rumors Salon. Take the stairs up to the third floor and the studio is to the left at the end of the hallway, Suite 305.

Our History

Vital Nutrition is one of the premier brands of the New Era Cookware Company, a company which has skillfully manufactured cookware since 1874. Vital Nutrition cookware combines New Era's legacy of superior craftsmanship with a distinctive 7 Ply induction ready multi-clad surgical stainless steel to create the very finest cooking experience in your home. Vital Nutrition is proud to have our cookware crafted with American steel in Clarksville, Tennessee, and each piece of cookware is meticulously polished and inspected by hand to ensure you will receive a product that will last a lifetime.

Our state-of-the-art cooking system ensures highly nutritious foods that are flavorful and tender. In addition to maximizing time, saving money, and providing peace of mind, this high-quality cookware has a lifetime warranty.

Vital Nutrition Plus Cookware is engineered and constructed of the finest quality materials in the industry. We combine 19-9 Surgical Stainless 7-Ply full body construction, an engineered moisture seal, a tri-vent whistle, and some of the heaviest cover steel available to create a complete cooking system. This is not just another set of pots and pans. Vital Nutrition Plus cookware provides excellent heat conduction, a non-reactive surface that will not leach metals or chemicals into your food, and a minimum-moisture method of preparation.

Every inch of our products has been engineered to stand above the competition, and we take pride in being unlike all others. For example, many cookware companies advertise their cookware as multi-ply cookware. What they don’t tell you is that it is only multi-ply on the bottom of the pan. This creates un-even heat distribution, and the need to use excess water to cook. Vital Nutrition Cookware is 7-Ply on all sides, which distributes the heat perfectly for true waterless cooking. Innovations like this help you cook more eficiently and live a healthier life.

Lifetime Warranty

Vital Nutrition Plus Cookware has been manufactured to the highest standards. Each stainless steel part is unconditionally warranted against defect in material and workmanship for the purchaser’s lifetime and is transferable once. To transfer the warranty simply send a copy of the original purchase documents and the new owner’s name and address to Vital Nutrition’s address below.

If a stainless steel part rusts, warps, chips, cracks, bends, melts, or breaks, this is considered defective. Simply contact customer service to obtain a Return Authorization # (RA#) and ship the piece postage prepaid and we will repair or replace the item with an equivalent item at no charge.

The Martha Washington Inn & Spa
150 W. Main Street
Abingdon, VA
Wendy Miller


The Martha Washington Inn & Spa began life as the retirement home for General Robert Preston following his successes in the War of 1812! It was built in 1832 as a private residence for General Francis Preston and Sarah Buchanan Preston and their nine children.

Much of the architectural integrity of this historic landmark has been meticulously preserved for over a century and a half. The original brick residence still comprises the central structure of The Martha Washington Hotel and the original living room of the Preston family is now the main lobby of the hotel. In fact, the grand stairway and parlors are today much as they were in the 19th century. The rare and elaborate Dutch-baroque grandfather clock, measuring over nine feet tall, was shipped from England by one of the Preston daughters, Mrs. Floyd, and now resides in the Edith Wilson Parlor.

Amazingly, over 150 years ago the residence was built for just under $15,000 dollars. Although paltry by today's standards, this was undoubtedly a precious sum at the time! In 1858 the Preston family home was purchased for the ridiculous sum of $21,000 dollars in order for the mansion to become an upscale college for young women. In honor of the first lady of our nation, the school was named Martha Washington College and affectionately coined “The Martha” by locals. The college operated for over 70 years through the years of the Civil War and the Great Depression. In fact, it was during the Civil War that many of the Martha's most intriguing ghost stories and legends evolved.

The “War Between the States” was soon to have a dramatic effect on the college. Schoolgirls became nurses and the beautiful grounds became training barracks for the Washington Mounted Rifles. Union and Confederate troops were involved in frequent skirmishes in and around the town with the College serving as a makeshift hospital for the wounded, both Confederate and Yankee. Despite the devastating effects of the Civil War, the Martha Washington College survived. However, the Great Depression, typhoid fever, and a declining enrollment eventually took its toll. The Martha was closed in 1932, standing idle for several years.

For the next 50 years, The Martha was to experience a number of changes in ownership. For a period of time, the facility was used to house actors and actresses appearing at the Barter Theatre across the street. Patricia Neal, Ernest Borgnine, and Ned Beatty are but a few of the prominent actors who began their career here… all of whom have later returned to visit The Martha. The Barter Theatre is today known as the longest-running professional resident theater in America.

In 1935, The Martha Washington opened as a hotel and throughout the years has hosted many illustrious guests. Eleanor Roosevelt, President Harry Truman, Lady Bird Johnson, Jimmy Carter, and Elizabeth Taylor are counted among the many famous guests who have frequented the hotel. Fortunately, much of the inn's historic charm, antiques and architectural detail were preserved, even though its future was at times uncertain.

In 1984, The United Company, representing a group of dedicated businessmen, purchased The Martha Washington and began a multi-million dollar renovation. Aware of this historic landmark's importance to the town of Abingdon, the restoration was carefully designed to preserve and enhance much of its original splendor and architectural detail.

In 1995, The Martha Washington Inn joined The Camberley Collection of fine historic properties. Sensitive to their role as stewards of a long and enduring legacy, Camberley maintains the Inn's strong ties with the Barter Theatre and the community of Abingdon. Today The Martha Washington Inn & Spa stands as a gateway to the past, providing those modern amenities expected by today's traveler amid the genteel elegance of period antiques and furnishings.
