Word is, if Tiger Woods can’t make it anymore as a golfer, he might have a future as a restaurateur if the first month of Woods Jupiter is any indication. Woods has not been able to get back to his top spot on the PGA Tour, but he is certainly making some waves in his home town of Jupiter, Florida.
According to the Inquisitr, fans and Yelp reviewers alike have been making their feelings about Woods Jupiter known online and through the press. Though some visitors were disappointed to have not seen Tiger Woods at Woods Jupiter (the guy does still have a day job), others were pleasantly surprised to be greeted by the proprietor.
The Palm Beach Post has gushed about Woods Jupiter, calling it “steeped in contrasts,” and even the employers are pleased with their boss.
“He opened the door for me the other day,” one of our servers told us on a recent night in a tone that suggested wonder and respect for the athlete/restaurateur whose presence is understated but real at The Woods, which opened August 10.
The servers are wearing sportswear and Nikes (a Woods sponsor) but are presenting diners with hot towels between courses.
And then there is the food, after all, it is a restaurant. Topping it is the Woodsprime Burger, which features balsamic onions, smoked mozzarella, and avocado. A close competitor is the Woods’ Rib Eye Sandwich, which is a grilled rib eye with drunken goat cheese and heirloom tomatoes on a toasted fresh baguette.
Then, according to the Inquisitr, are the desserts, which are attracting a lot of attention. If you stop by Woods Jupiter, check out the chocolate bacon cake.
According to Eater, the seafood is excellent, and so is the service.
“Yelper D’Andrea M. had only nice things to say. ‘Food and service is excellent! There is something for everyone on the menu and at a great price! The restaurant itself is gorgeous! Definitely a must go to restaurant! We will definitely be back! Five stars.”
Woods Jupiter still has not had its official grand opening, but all looks good for the future of Tiger Woods’ new restaurant.
