January 2019 Business of the Month: Greenside Bar and Grill

Congratulations to Chef Shaun Belangia and Greenside Bar and Grill for being our January 2019 Business of the Month.
Greenside Bar and Grill prides themselves on being local and wanting to support the local community by using as many ingredients from the area as possible. Their goal is to fuse beach and southern food together to make some big smiles and full stomachs. It's an experience you will not forget.

Growing up in Currituck, Chef Shaun knows what food the locals like. The lack of restaurants in the county made culinary graduate Shaun ready to make a splash to give the public somewhere to go to have great food, great service and an all-around great experience.

As a kid he always wanted to be able to open his own restaurant. Shaun studied at the Culinary Institute of Virginia and shortly after graduation he landed the Executive Chef position at the Hilton Garden Inn, Kitty Hawk. After a few years he was offered the chance to rent his own restaurant and start his endeavor that he has dreamed of as a kid, and to top it off the restaurant is at a great golf course. Most views from the restaurant are of the greens on the course which is where the name Greenside Bar & Grille comes from.

As a business of the month, Greenside Bar and Grill will also be considered for the annual ESBY, Entrepreneur & Small Business of the Year Awards.
