The Grill at Tamiami Trail… Mi Casa es Su Casa

The Grill at Tamiami Trail… a New Place to Celebrate Good Food and Life!

These hard times are inspiration for those with a flair for entrepreneurship, and proof once more, “That when the going gets tough, the tough get going.”

The Event Lady is happy to announce, that another Hispanic- owned business has opened its doors in Fort Myers, a cozy restaurant with a popular name in the industry… “The Grill”, but this specific one is right on the Trail, in the heartland of Southwest Florida.  Appropriately so… it has been named The Grill at Tamiami Trail.



( First Pictures Above Courtesy of the Grill at Tamiami Trail)

This new bistro is owned and operated by TV Host and Producer Mr. Martin Ycaza, of the daily Hispanic TV Program En Casa con Martin Ycaza, which airs at 11:30 am on Telemundo’s local station, Monday thru Friday. Martin is a hard working Latino from Ecuador. He is well known in both American and Spanish social circles. As a leader of the community, he is always coming up with ways to bring people together and adds flair and passion to all his innovative efforts. This new venture is perfect … a place to meet, dine, and have a good time. His motto: “Mi Casa Es tu Casa” (My Home is Your Home.) a creative slogan for his restaurant, a project which he proudly shares with his close knit family and work team; his parents Mr. and Mrs. Martin Ycaza Sr., and his sister Maytee Ycaza, his right hand in business. Again, here is proof that many of old sayings are true in life, “The family that works together stays together.”



(Above Pictures of Martin Ycaza and His Parents Courtesy of The Event Lady)

Ycaza, a local Spanish TV personality has chosen a universal way to join cultures… the love for great food! He shares his experience in the restaurant business, from back in the days when he lived in California, and managed a restaurant location that served over 500 consumers.

A restaurateur never looses his touch to create and serve delicious food… “Once it’s in the blood you just cannot let it go.” Today Martin is proud to bring forth a menu that will satisfy a diversified community for breakfast, lunch and dinner. His mission is to bring a distinct flavor to our palates, a place with a friendly and happy ambiance, and above all, the desire to offer his personal attention to his followers.

This local piece of news is very welcomed in the party industry! As a media source for event planners, it is one more place to add to a varied list of perfect party locations in SW Florida, where we can hold intimate gatherings and celebrations. A cozy space to get-together and toast to unique moments in life such as birthdays, anniversaries, intimate weddings, Christmas parties, diva parties, or just about any other social occasion where good food and satisfying libations bring out the best in people. It is with pleasure that I offer my Congratulations to Martin!

The Event Lady will be visiting you soon, and I truly look forward to your nouvelle cuisine ideas, your party catering menu, and hosting many fun parties in “Your Casa.”

The Grill is Now Open to the Public. We Look Forward to The Grand Opening Party Very Soon TBA! Check out this Blog for More Information.

Florida Weddings and Special Events Weblog
The Event Lady's blog posts are focused on the wedding, sweet sixteen and quince/sweet fifteen
celebrations of Florida, we love to hear about many other social events happening in our own Florida communities.

A quince celebration is very much like a wedding reception; it is a traditional coming of age celebration in a young woman's life within the Hispanic culture.
The Event Lady is an expert in both weddings and quinceañera events, and feeling proud of her Cuban heritage; enjoys this very special niche of the special event industry. Quinces parties have very similar planning needs to a wedding event.

We invite Florida brides and quinceañeras of all nationalities to comment on our blogs, each one has a small cooment link on the bottom of each post. 

We also invite wedding photographers to tell us about their great events; submit event images with your website credit on them of course on the lower right hand corner
so you can share bridal ideas and savvy wedding tips.

We invite any wedding and quince professionals to inform us about the latest industry news, useful articles and product updates.

We will review your submissions, and if we feel they could be good for this blog, then post them up for you so that the readers;
most importantly our Floridian brides, quince and sweet sixteen girls,
will have additional resources for their event coordination within our tropical Sunshine State region.
