Greg Norman’s Australian Grille Recognized Among The Best Athlete Restaurants
Greg Norman’s Australian Grille is featured in Where Traveler’s list of the best pro-athlete backed restaurants. Below is the excerpt.
While some professional athletes have faded into the shadows after their playing days have ended, others have found a different avenue: entertaining the masses through their palates.
Travel the country east to west or north to south and you'll find anything from a legendary football coach serving up a juicy steak in Miami to a former Heisman Trophy winner dishing out barbecue in Oklahoma. Those who once perfected their craft in their chosen athletic field are now perfecting their craft on a plate.
Just one part of “The Great White Shark’s” brand, Greg Norman’s Australian Grille promises creative cuisine that complements the harborside views.
The menu ranges from fish to steaks but the prime draw is the wine list, which landed the restaurant the Award of Excellence by Wine Spectator Magazine from 2002 to 2015. Norman gets satisfaction from pleasing his loyal and new customers and has been able to apply lessons learned being a top-flight athlete into the restaurant field.
"To be world class in anything you have to pay attention to detail and seek perfection by understanding rule No. 1: never be No. 2," said Norman.
