New "Pup" Menu For Diners Who Treat Pets Like Family

By: Rachelle Lucas


I've been looking for more opportunities to travel with my dog, and now I just found a great excuse to get down to Clearwater!

Besa Grill has launched a "Pup Menu" including a Bowser Beer and Chicken Mutt-loaf…for your dog.  This sounds like people food!  So if you're a pet owner that treats your dog like family, you'll be happy to know that when dining at Besa Grill, dogs aren’t only welcome, they are celebrated with their own special menu.

While you enjoy the restaurant’s award-winning Latin-fusion cuisine, your beloved dog can lap up a beverage of his own, or gnaw on a Bully Stick (a 6-inch, all-natural, odor-free snack) ordered off the Pup Menu.  A list of doggie entrees includes dishes made with chicken, vegetables and even filet mignon.  There's even a Doggie Dessert -- a cupcake made by nearby pup bakery, Woofgang Bakery.

 “As a pet owner myself, I understand that when people go out to lunch or dinner, they often want to take their dogs along; they are considered members of the family,” says Besa Grill owner Adriana Pappas. “With the pup menu, our goal is to make our patio not simply pet-friendly, but a place where people can enjoy dining al fresco while giving a really special treat to their pets.”

There's a “Yappy Hour,” between 3 and 6 p.m. that allows owners to get $1 off all doggie entrees.

Besa Grill’s pup menu includes items such as:

 - Backyard Hash: fresh diced vegetables, topped with sweet potatoes and a ivory sauce.

 - Fido’s Finest: diced filet mignon tips, chopped carrots, natural gravy

 - K-9 Meatballs: ground beef, carrot and rice meatballs, with natural pan gravy

 - Chicken Mutt-loaf:  Meatloaf for dogs, made with fresh chicken,  carrots, peas, brown rice and eggs

I don't know about you, but it sound delicious enough for me to taste!  I'll have to plan to take my dog on a road trip and try it out.
