Brass Bowl is an original St. Petersburg brand, located exclusively in the Downtown area. Jason Gordon, the Executive Chef of the restaurant, described it as having
“…all the elements of fine dining brought to a more casual, relaxed atmosphere.” The food is 100% organic and gluten-free, with t-shirts sporting the phrase “Straight Outta Gluten.” Gordon expressed the desire to accommodate customers with celiac disease and gluten intolerance, without compromising the flavor or presentation.
A substantial focus of the eatery is the sourcing of locally grown fruits and vegetables. Doubling as a juicery, Brass Bowl has an onsite cold press that allows for daily juicing. Every morning, different combinations of fruits and vegetables are mixed together to be bottled and sold. Gordon explained the process as, “A little bit of science [and] local vegetables put into a flavor combination that’s a little bit easier to drink than some of your regular juices that are on the market today.”
“…all the elements of fine dining brought to a more casual, relaxed atmosphere.”
Many of the agents at RE/MAX Metro are excellent at maintaining expertise with the local community. Ryan and Tracey continued with this theme by visiting Central Avenue’s Brass Bowl, hoping to explore the visions and goals of the new restaurant. Gordan took the time to sit down with the team and go into detail about the company.
The business philosophy for both the employees and consumers is creating a culture of wellness. Ensuring the staff feels valued and has room to flourish in the given environment is essential to Gordon. Starting in the industry at age 14, the chef is familiar with the difficulty of the job. One way this doctrine is carried out is through tipping. By eliminating the use of servers, Brass Bowl returns all tips to the line cooks. As a result, the appreciation of the customers and management is tangibly represented as a result of the cook’s hard work. Ultimately, the goal is to create an atmosphere of inclusion by making everyone feel like a part of the operation.
The restaurant’s sayings, “check your ego at the door,” paired with “passion and positivity” represent the desire of Brass Bowl. Promoting wellness through dedication and modesty is indicated by the artistry demonstrated in their food. Gordon commented on this ability, noting the time and effort placed on sourcing ingredients to create amazing dishes.
As Gordon stated, “Wellness [is] about how we could give the public and our guests the best lifestyle for themselves through our organic food [and] healthier eating choices.”
Opening as early as 9 a.m. with numerous juices and options for eating, Brass Bowl is a wonderful choice for dining. The high quality, quickly prepared food, accompanied by a freshly squeezed drink, brings a unique flavor to St. Petersburg, leaving its customers hungry for more. Ryan and Tracey recommend taking the time to meet Jason Gordon and his team, conveniently providing the opportunity to sample a taste of the Brass Bowl.
There are many ways to succeed in the current real estate market. Here are just a few of the ways our amazing Managing Broker, Tracey Strube, has found success in this always changing industry.
#1. Start Your Morning With A Great Cup Of Coffee
Let’s face it, the life of a real estate agent/broker never ends. This is a job that requires most people to be on the clock all day, every day. There’s no way you can negotiate sales and keep positive relationships with your clients if you’re not energized in the morning. So, start your day with a delicious cup of a coffee to give you that time to unwind in the morning as well as a burst of energy for the rest of the day. If coffee isn’t your thing, try caffeinated tea or an energy drink. Something this simple can really help you get in the right mood to conquer the day.
#2. Keep To Your Goals and Commitments
Setting goals for yourself is very important. This is something that everyone should get in the habit of doing. What’s more important though, is staying committed to meeting those goals. There are things that will continuously get in the way of us attaining our goals. It’s important to do everything in your power to stay the course and see these goals to the end. The best part is when we are so focused on fulfilling the commitments we’ve made, it becomes easier to say no to other things that would make your day less productive.
#3. Identify What Your Purpose Is
Going hand in hand with committing to your goals, understanding your purpose for why you’re doing what you’re doing will give you a clear direction with your efforts going further. This also helps you make the right decisions and recommit to the promise that you made to yourself.
#4. Remember Your Friends and Family
Familiar with the term “blood is thicker than water?” This is so true when it comes to what we do. Your main motivation should be to do everything to benefit yourself and those around you. Your family and friends usually have your best interest in mind.
One of the most important things to do to keep your priorities straight and your mind focused on the goals you’re committed to is to have an accountability partner. This can come in the form of a peer you talk to on a weekly basis or a consultant or coach you check in with every once in a while. The point of this is to have someone who has your best interests in mind that can help you along the way of what you are trying to accomplish.
