Since opening in October 1995, Alexander's Restaurant has built a loyal following with from-scratch European fare made with a chef's touch. It’s common knowledge in the food business that most restaurants don’t last more than a few years. So when a restaurant stays open for as long as Alexander’s in North Naples has — 22 years in business and counting — people want to know its secrets. “You have to listen to the customer,” says Alexander Bernard, the restaurant's eponymous chef-owner.
Thanks to a chance encounter, a lifelong Puerto Rican cook has a place of his own for fresh tacos and more. Head Off the Eaten Path to Tickled Taco. Tucked inside the Best Ice Cream shop at the Edison Park 8 plaza off Winkler Avenue in Fort Myers, there’s an unexpected foodie surprise. Tickled Taco, owned by Reymundo Hernandez, serves unique takes on Latin favorites and has developed a loyal following since it opened in July.
When I learned that Côte D’Azur, the North Naples French restaurant that has long been a staple of our fine dining scene, was changing owners, I joined in the collective gasp that went up across Southwest Florida. Under new chef/owner James Waller, who moved here from Monterey, would its menu of French classics change? Would its superior service alter? Would its charm wane? There was only one way to find out: I immediately made reservations.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
