Carol has 30+ years in the restaurant and hospitality industry. She starting folding pizza boxes at Frankie’s Pizza in Miami and quickly moved on to a successful career with Darden Restaurants, initially as a hostess and finishing her career there as General Manager of three Red Lobster units. She left corporate America in 1998 and opened Kicks Sports Bar, her first business in Wilton Manors. After a successful five year run and always dreaming of bigger and better, she opened, owned and operated New Moon Bar from 2004 ~ 2014.
I spent most of my adult life, or as I like to refer to it, suspended adolescence, as a marketing professional in the music business. I started working in a record store (you know, where they sold vinyl records, cassettes and these new fangled things called CD’s?) when I was 18 and I left the industry in 2009…just a few years older.
We ventured into Thirteen with the goal of adding another delicious choice for casual dining and drinks in Wilton Manors and Fort Lauderdale.
We have amazing co-conspirators: the ultra-talented Chef Heather in the kitchen making sure your every day favorites are on-point and creating mouth-watering specials and a family of crazy servers and bartenders that make you feel at home.
We strive to be serve you great food in a familiar, not fancy (unless you consider Carol’s Birkenstocks or my beat up motorcycle boots fancy) atmosphere, so please come as you are and make yourself at home.
Nancy & Carol
