With Florida currently on Lockdown, and the team working from home, we all try to stay safe and take care of our loved ones. I can’t help myself thinking of the “when this is all over” and the places that I miss going to. So, as a way of positive thinking, let me share my list of favorite dinner places in Sarasota, and where you will be able to find me when the “stay at home” order is lifted.
A Belgian/French refined restaurant – it’s my go-to place when I miss delicious French food. The chef Angela is amazing, and Olivier makes your dinner experience a very pleasant one. Every Monday, enjoy the “all you can eat mussels”, with no less than 10 different mussel recipes! Everything is homemade, from the appetizer to the desserts, delicious!
Where: 1100 N Tuttle Ave, Sarasota. (941) 331-1400
This is a fondue restaurant! It offers a wide dinner experience with cheese fondue, bouillon based fondue (with meat, fish and veggies), and an amazing chocolate fondue. To those who love their “savoyarde” or “Alpine” fondue, you won’t be disappointed! And yes, eating a cheese fondue when it’s 85 F outside is possible… Another option is to go in only for the chocolate fondue, just yum! Currently available for Take-Out.
Where: 1949 Ringling Blvd, Sarasota. (941) 365-2628
My favorite Italian restaurant in Sarasota! Open for lunch and dinner, it offers one of the best pizza in Sarasota (the kind with very thin crust), along with great pasta, entrées, and desserts. Cosy decor, great service, and a nice outdoor seating. Just across the movie theater too. Just reopened for Take-out! (I’ll probably stop by soon…)
Where: 1970 Main St, Sarasota. (941) 365-4122
This is actually a franchise restaurant, but a very good one! Seafood is its specialty, but it also offers many options. Order the bang bang shrimp appetizer it’s amazing! Service is very professional, never been disappointed, even the drinks are good. Great option for date nights or family/friends. Open for Take-out too! (Guilty of having ordered their take out in the past week)
Where: 3971 S Tamiami Trail, Sarasota. (941) 924-9090 8101 Copper Creek Blvd, Sarasota. (941) 360-3171
