Mezza Faces


General Manager Beth Ann Encinosa

“A big part of my mission revolves around employee care. If you care for your employees and give them support and respect, not only do they support you, but more importantly, they care for the guests, which is our end goal: to give the best dining experience possible.”

A native of Upstate New York, Beth Ann’s first “culinary” experience was working in the bakery section of a local Italian grocery store in East Syracuse, NY. After attending college in Atlanta, Beth Ann settled down at Vickery’s Bar and Grill for the next 17 years, working her way up to General Manager. She and her children relocated to Jacksonville in 2004, and Beth Ann began working at Mezza where she has been a mainstay ever since.
