Tanya Stephens breathes new life in Ocho Rios
Water is life and maybe that’s what sinjay Tanya Stephens hopes to breathe into Ocho Rios through her newly opened restaurant H2O located in the Coconut Grove shopping complex.
Opened at the start of the New Year he restaurant is already receiving some good clientele, but as Tanya will tell you that’s not a coincidence. A lot of planning and care went into the menu, choosing the chef for the establishment and the entertainment package.
According to Tanya the restaurant will be receiving the same kind of treatment she gives her albums, “Real good food and no wasted stuff!”
A fast growing feature of the restaurant is weekly Saturday Night Flow a jam session with a live band and a special guest artiste in the house.
Since its opening singers such as Jeffrey Star, Sophia Squire and Ocho Rios based musicians and artistes have passed through.
Running the restaurant wasn’t’ exactly on Tanya’s mind, but she the singer had a philosophical explanation for it, “Most of the time we complain about the things we can’t find not realising that we have the capacity to create what we are looking for.”
Rising talents will get a chance not only enjoy well prepared meals, but to also show what they can do. “All they have to do is leave a CD and a contact number...and they could be the one entertaining the guests,” Stephens said.
This Saturday Digicel Rising Star finalist Inga Stewart will be H2O’s special guest.
