BL Bistro is locally owned and operated by Brian and Lizzie Mason.
BL Bistro opened on August 16, 2000 at 2916 Wolflin Avenue in Amarillo. In the beginning, BL Bistro's menu was loaded with Greek cuisine and had small space with 9 tables and 12 bar seats. Through the years, BL changed and enhanced its menus as often as possible, to keep up with trends and tastes of our fellow Amarilloans. After a successful 5 years on Wolflin Ave, the Masons got the opportunity to move locations. A major overhaul at an old bank drive-up and a move, less than a mile away, gave BL Bistro a new home.
Now located at 2203 S. Austin Street, BL is able to offer a bigger dining room, a separate, larger bar and even a patio! We evolved into BL Bistro Steaks and Seafood and maintain an eclectic menu and exquisite wine list. We have nightly specials that are not to be missed! BL Bistro is made possible by our friendly and hardworking staff, who strive everyday to make our diners' experiences one of a kind! Thank you to all our patrons who have supported us for 10 years!
Italy, a country rich in culture, is even better known for its food and wine. Italians have a genuine passion for sharing meals with family and friends. It's the passion that led us to open Pescaraz, and we hope to bring you Italy's most flavorful meals. Our imagination along with timeless recipes allow us to create dishes full of flavor, served in a relaxed, casual dining environment.
Even native Italians agree -- Pescaraz is the place to be for authentic, traditional Italian meals.
For the best in Italian, come to Pescaraz -- Amarillo's locally owned and operated Italian restaurant.
Why We Named Our Restaurant Pescaraz
Pescara is the capital city of the Province of Pescara in Italy, and translates to "abundance of fish". And no wonder, since Pescara is located on the coast of the Adriatic sea. The name reminds us of the elegance, romance, architecture and history of Italy.
We added a "z" at the end for some flair!
Mangia! (So, eat! in Italian)
The Ruffled Cup was created as Amarillo's first and finest cupcakery in the Texas Panhandle. Owned and operated by mother and daughter, this is a local Amarillo Business, not a corporate chain.
Family traditions have always been the center of our lives. When creating "The Ruffled Cup" we went back in time, remembering when Grandma baked sweet treats in the kitchen, dressed in her little ruffled apron. She taught us how to appreciate the simple things in life, and how to put our hearts into everything we do.
As mother and daughter, we have many fond memories of baking together, making sweet little treats to share with our friends and family. We want to share our love for baking with Amarillo, and we hope our cupcakes taste just like you remember- a classic little cake but with an elegant twist.
At the Ruffled Cup, we pride ourselves in baking our cupcakes from scratch, daily. Our gourmet cupcakes and signature swirled frosting are made with only the finest ingredients, including Callebaut chocolate, European sweet cream butter, real cream cheese, and Mexican Vanilla. What sets our cupcakery apart from other bakeries is our devotion to the most discerning customerâ€™s sweet tooth. We never use a cake mix, or freeze and thaw our cupcakes!
We rotate our menu of over 80 flavors weekly, serving our "favorites" daily, and offering our unique flavors on a rotating basis. Ruby Red Velvet, Va -Va Vanilla, Chocolate Obsession, and our signature cupcake, "The Ruffled Truffle" can always be found on our menu. A minimum of seven additional flavors will be available to enjoy, daily.
Everyone loves cupcakes, and no one makes them better than "The Ruffled Cup!" Custom orders are available with a seven day advance notice. We strive to make your cupcake dreams come true, so no job is too big or too small for "The Ruffled Cup." Cupcakes are perfect for birthday parties, anniversaries, thank you gifts, bridal showers, and weddings.
