Wilson Restaurant Earns James Beard Foundation Award

Nora’s Fish Creek Inn, a Wilson restaurant, recently earned a James Beard Foundation Award in the America’s Classics Category.

This award is considered equivalent to a lifetime achievement award in the restaurant/food industry.

The America’s Classics Category is for restaurants that have been in business longer than 10 years. This award is given to only five U.S. restaurants each year. This award is intended to be given to a restaurant that matters to a specific place and does that with style. Such a restaurant should have a timeless appeal reflecting the community’s character.

According to the Wyoming Business Report, James Beard is considered the father of American cuisine.

“It’s an incredible opportunity for participants to meet with every buyer. That doesn’t happen at most shows,” Greene Bellardo says.

This year’s RMI Roundup included not only representatives from the key markets the Wyoming Office of Tourism targets in Western Europe: United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy and Benelux, but also attendees from Scandinavia and Australia.

Following RMI Roundup, 14 tour operators participated in a familiarization tour through the Northeast Region of the state.

The location for the RMI Roundup alternates between four states joined in an international marketing coop: Wyoming, Montana, Idaho and South Dakota. Next year's event will take place in Idaho at a to-be-determined location.
