Food Tweet of the Week


Courtest Chef Tony Maciante

So I’m venturing out of DC for this Tweet of the Week and north to Bethesda. At Chef Tony’s the rotating menu is seafood focused. The only thing Chef Tony Marciante might care about almost as much as food is social media.

On his website banner you can see a caricature, plus all the ways to get in touch with Chef Tony: Twitter, Facebook, email, “I-phone” and even YouTube. Chef  even even describes himself as “Social Media Guy & High Tech Chef/Restaurant Owner, TV Business Show Co-Host, …student of life, teacher to some, love me someinternet marketing.” He actually sounds more like a social media pro, telling me “100%, iPhone never leaves my side”

My favorite tweet is after the jump.

On his Twitter feed Chef shares articles about the food industry, links to youtube videos, pictures from the restaurant, and updates us on his foursquare check-ins. He has his accounts linked, so that what he posts on Facebook immediately goes to Twitter. Technically my Tweet of the Week is a Facebook post, but we will let that slide.

Chef Tony’s humor comes through in all his Tweets. I’m dying to know how the sink really got knocked off the wall, but won’t ask.

Chef Tony’s is located at 4926 St Elmo Ave  Bethesda, MD. The closest metro stop is Bethesda (Red Line). For more information, call (301) 654-3737.
