Bananas and a new Restaurant??? - 09/16/02 09:03 AM

Thanks to the persons that responded my first topic.
Now I would like to now some info about Bananas and about the restaurant they are opening. Which resorts are the best ones and which restaurants are the best ones????

Re: Bananas and a new Restaurant??? - 09/16/02 04:07 PM

The best answer to your BEST ?.

Resorts and Restaurants in catagories are:
PRICEY
MODERATE
BUDGET
Boarders here, all have their favorites in each catagory, which IOHO are BEST on that given day or stay.

BEST answers are in Lan's Guide.

I am sure Banana's new restaurant will be great, since they have mucho competition
on AC.

Not many negative post here on either. We just choose to remember all the wonderful times, and do not dwell on the negative, if there were any. BELIZE IT.

Banana Beach has narrowed the name down to a couple of choices - Still not official.

As for the food-

they will have a fully air conditioned Steak House and Martini Bar featuring USDA prime cuts of beef, Caribbean Seafood, Gourmet Brick Oven Pizza and Brazilian Rotisserie Grill.

Becky's suggested restaurant names:

How about "Becky's Bound for Banana Beach Bistro" - that has a great ring to it!

How 'bout the Prime Jib and Bar de Tumbo. At the latter, of course, they serve big dry Tinis del Mar.

Good idea Gela. I'll ask Tim about it when I'm there in November, they could have a big picture of me in front of the restaurant holding a thing of bananas in one hand and a Beliken in the other. Hmmmn. [Linked Image] Works for me.

OK-

When Marty emailed me asking info on the restaurant I didn't realize that he was going to post the no name yet portion...

We do have the name narrowed down to a couple choices but since you all are having fun with this lets make a contest. (Names may need to be a little more serious than some that have been posted so far).

Anyway how does dinner for two sound if we use a name entered here on the message board?

And how about a 2 for 1 drink for all those who participate seriously from here forward??

Hey Marty just delete me if this becomes a problem!

Re: Bananas and a new Restaurant??? - 09/17/02 01:42 AM

A contest! Fun!

OK - I'm assuming that we are just naming *one* thing -- a restaurant and bar, but *one* name, right?

How about "Banana Fana" or "Banana Fan-A"
(You know, like in "The Name Game")

Hey! I like it!

At home from Banana Beach:

Hey some good ones coming out! I will keep track for the 2for1's...

We are trying for something different than anything with banana in it...

There have been a lot of names bantered around the Monkey theme too. Monkey Bar and Grill- Sea Monkey- Brass Monkey- Monkey Tree-Barrel of Monkeys-Three Monkeys- Monkey Business- None of these have caught though.

P.S. naming restaurant and bar is an option too. One name or a combination name... This hasn't been ruled out.

Use humor to lighten up heavy situations and bring out your playful, creative, magical side and Chuen will be jumping for joy.

Since you seem to want to keep away from the Bananas word, I suggest simply:

or

Of course they would be in large letters; maybe TJ's placed inside a circle in lights, etc.

Re: Bananas and a new Restaurant??? - 10/31/02 07:37 PM

In case you didn't know it, the new bar and restaurant at Banana's is supposed to be non smoking. They will have a couple of tables or so outside on a tiny deck facing the parking lot for smokers. Don't think this will fly here.
Posted By: Sandcrab

Re: Bananas and a new Restaurant??? - 10/31/02 09:15 PM

Whatever happened to that fun, laid back island called Ambergris Caye. I'm a non-smoker, but I disagree with unnecessary rules and regulations. This is surely one of those instances. Next, there will be politically correct phrases, and smoking police all over the place. wink

Seriously, this rule has put many good bars and restaurants out of business in Toronto and elsewhere. It's unnecessary and it's a double edged sword. It can backfire on you and in all probability, will!

Live and let live. It works much better.

The no smoking choice seems to work much better for hotel rooms. Of course, it is just that, a choice since both are offered by most hotels.

Just a suggestion but I would go with the status quo. When you're paying the big bucks to go out for dinner, many customers will want to be comfortable after dinner, and will want to light up. Will they come back if they are shuffled out to a deck or the parking lot to have a smoke?

I wonder if the new restaurant has central air, and if this has anything to do with the no-smoking decision.

Even so, it seems like a very risky rule to impose for a new business in AC. The customer is the one to please.... not so? cool
Posted By: Seaislegal

Re: Bananas and a new Restaurant??? - 11/18/02 08:28 AM

I definitely dont want to get into any non-smoker / smoker thing here. Personally I am for the non-smoking unless they have two separate rooms where the smoke can be totally separated from those who wish to eat and not have it drifting onto their food. I don't mind smoke in bars at all (except for the real crowded ones where I or my clothes have been burned several times my folks who angle their ciggies away from themselves but so passers by can be burned by them!) but even in some restaurants non-smoking areas, if the smoking section is not separated by a wall or a short distance you can get smoke drifting in your face. I have contact lens and my eyes are real sensitive to smoke in small places and some of my friends have respiritory issues too. And besides that, there is nothing worse than smoke flowing your face when you are trying to eat! I prefer my food unpolluted. I have a several smoker friends, some regular smokers and some recreational (i.e. after a drink or two) and they also dont want it in their faces when they are putting food in their mouths. So If its a one room indoor restaurant, non smoking totally makes sense as there is no way to separate smoke from non-smokers in that situation. If it is outdoors, then there could definitely be a smoking area there if there is at least a little bit of distance between the non-smoking tables. Or if its only indoors, as a lot of restaurants in the US do, put the smoking tables in the bar area where smoking is going to occur anyway. Since most times, even as a group with smokers we all ask for non-smoking tables, I dont think it will be a big issue. I have friends in the restaurant business who say 80% or more ask for non-smoking anyways and folks can always take a break and smoke in the bar or outside which is what most of my snmoker friends like to do and they have no problem with that since they no more want to eat smoke than the non-smokers in our group do.

Anyway, off that topic, when is the restaurant opening? Hopefully Tim will add a page to his Banana Beach webpage and post some photos and menus. I looked at a lot of menus online last year, as well as taking folks recommendations, and that helped us decide where to eat a lot of the time.

Has Tim picked a name yet?????? A lot of us submitted our ideas I know, and from his notes he wanted something non-banana-ish. A lot of good ideas came out though! Less than 7 months to go now for my little group. We had 11 of us last year, hopefully more this coming year but it was a fantastic time and we can't wait to go back. The view from my balcony is the wallpaper on my laptop and my co-workers keep asking where it is! The week of May 3rd is highlighted on my calendar as that is when we head back! smile

ALoha Tim,

Howzit? Every now and then I plug into the A.C. message board to see wassup. So low and behold you've got a bar/res going on at Banana beach. Super, hope you get a top chef. I find it interesting no one has come up with something to honor your right hand woman who recently passed away, your friend my friend.
I think you should name the restaurant in honor of Jackie and call it "Bananas Devine". After all she was a big part of Bananas success and a big part of your life as well as mine.
As for the lounge, well what is the most popular drink in Belize, beside Beliken? I would call the lounge "Cubalibra", thats right Caribbean dark, coke and lime, can't get any simpler than that.
Won't be down for holidays, the maya prince is coming to Hawaii. Enjoy your holidays.

Last week when I was at BB, Tim showed me around the restaurant and bar. It is going to be real nice! Great choice of a name.

Thanks Luis, for letting all of us be apart of naming. El Divino is beautiful. She is smiling.

What is your e-mail address Luis so we can all send you our addresses? Will they be adding a page to the BB webpage with information on the restaurant and bar, hopefully a menu to get us salivating before we arrive!!!
