Let’s Do Lunch!!

Marianna patrons can enjoy a new, unique restaurant for lunch
By Sid Riley
Bistro Palms, the new, brightly colored restaurant on McPherson Street in Marianna will have its official Grand Opening Ceremony this Friday, June 5 at 4:00 PM. A live band will be playing as the ribbon is cut to officially open Marianna’s newest place to dine.
The restaurant is located just up the hill from the historic Stone Hotel on McPherson Street. The owner-operator is Mystie Richards from Orlando, who moved to our area seven years ago with her husband. He works with Petroleum Helicopters Inc. a company which flies oil crews onto off shore rigs. They bought the property from Linda Percy and Pete Carmichael and have worked three years to convert the facility into a beautifully decorated and appointed restaurant.
Mystie got the idea for the restaurant from their wedding experience at the beautiful Gaylord Palms Hotel in Orlando. She felt bringing a tropical environment to downtown Marianna was an eye catching theme.
Bistro Palms is decorated in bright, cheerful tropical colors and plants. A large outdoor patio deck overlooks the street and provides a place to dine and enjoy on cool evenings. If you want to continue to work or want to catch up on socializing on the computer while grabbing lunch, wireless internet is available at the site.
Their menu is filled with unique sandwiches served on tasty Panini bread, delicious soups and salads, and a great dessert menu. Home made cakes and a mouth watering "Peanut Butter Pie" are there to satisfy sweet cravings.
They are open every week day for lunch from 10:30-2:30pm. Or you can enjoy a great dinner special there every Friday from 4:30-9pm. They also serve beer and wines along with the usual assortment of beverages. Bistro Palms also features a jazz theme, with great music often complementing the dining experience.
Plan to drop by the Bistro Palms on Friday afternoon for the opening ceremony, stay for awhile and enjoy the music, and then plan to sit down and enjoy their delicious Friday evening dinner servings. Then stop by again next week for a great mid-day lunch experience.
