May 11, 2013 was a day of great honor and adventure. On this day, Tona Sushi Bar and Grill was given the award of BEST SUSHI in UTAH from the Best of State Awards! Owner and General Manager Tina Yu represented Tona at the black tie gala, sharing the evening with some friends of Tona – Rusty Sessions of Sidewinder Media, Kim & Nick Bowsher of the Family Practice, The Indie Ogden girls: Mikki,
Kristin & Jenny, and Aimee Edwards of Public Relations for many Ogden Community event with the recent Ogden Restaurant Week as a great success. It was a lovely evening spent recognizing some of the best things in Utah. From performing arts, to sports, to community services (Tina also accepted the award on behalf of the Historic 25th Street Association AGAIN), to Best Association/Chamber.
The room was packed, with over 1500 people in attendance and dozens of presenters, performers and the people “to know” in Utah (Governor Herbert, Mark Eaton, TV Personalities and more!). There were performances from the Hale Center Theater’s cast of “Ragtime”; Odyssey Dance Theater wowed the audience with a piece called “Solimbula”; live, swinging music from the Voodoo Orchestra… This evening was glorious.
All in all, over 300 businesses and people important to the Utah community in 10 different categories were honored and recognized for the great things they bring to this great state. It’s a bit of a process, with judges looking at ways the nominees support the community, excel in their particular specialty and are creative in their methods of doing what they do. The fact that Tona won Best Sushi in all of Utah is a great honor. Tona is committed to provide the best food and service to the Ogden community.
So, many thanks to the Tona team and Tona valued customers for making this award possible for Tona. Tona will wear it with pride.
