Annette Named “Best Everything” by 5280 Magazine
Rather than produce their 25 Best Restaurants list this year, 5280 magazine dedicated their October issue to new awards for our Covid times: the 2020 Best Takeout Awards, in which they named Stanley restaurant Annette “Best Everything.”
Here’s the full copy from the magazine:

Kolaches. Biscuits. Epic burgers and fried chicken. Ice cream and hand-cranked sausages and berry hand pies sent in hand-woven picnic baskets. Caroline Glover and her tiny but mighty team at Annette in Stanley Marketplace threw everything they had at the past several months, cooking any delicious thing they could to keep customers coming back for takeout or patio dining. Glover and partner-spouse Nelson Harvey were eloquent, too, penning arguments for federal restaurant aid and sharing raw emotions on social media, all while donating food and time to charitable causes, testing Annette’s staff for COVID-19 every two weeks, and, well, working like mad to safely serve us that which comforts us most.
We are honored and delighted to see Annette rack up even more accolades. Chef Caroline and her team were also finalists for a James Beard Award this year, before those awards were canceled.
