Two accolades achieved by Timbers

By Staff | Jun 17, 2009

Timbers Restaurant & Fish Market on Tarpon Bay Road has received two major awards for 2009.

For the 10th year, the restaurant has been named one of Florida Trend’s Top

500 Restaurants, one of only two Sanibel restaurants so designated (the other is The Mad Hatter at Santiva).

The second recognition is Timbers’ nomination for the Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award for 2009. The Freedom Award is the U.S. Government’s highest recognition given to employers of National Guard or Reserve members for their exceptional support above the requirements of the law. Recipients of the award will be announced and honored in Washington, D.C. at a ceremony on Sept. 17.

Timbers owner Matt Asen congratulated his new Executive Chef Teh Peng “for continuing to please not only our customers, but the editors of Florida

Trend as well.”

“Teh and his staff are the reason we won!” Asen added.
