Each June, dozens of local restauranteurs in Sarasota join forces, thanks to the organization of Visit Sarasota County, designing specialty lunch and dinner menus which provide visitors and residents alike the opportunity to truly “Savor Sarasota.”
This year, more than 60 restaurants are on-board to participate when the 12th annual Savor Sarasota Restaurant Week which returns June 1-14, 2017. (Yes, in fact, it’s TWO weeks!)
Hosted by our friends at Visit Sarasota County, this much-anticipated culinary celebration began in 2005 and has grown to include many of Sarasota’s acclaimed restaurants. During the first two weeks of June 2017, we invite you to join us in Sarasota to sample eclectic offerings with $32 pre-fixe three-course dinner menus and multi-course lunch menus for just $16 per person.
Participating restaurants to date include a mix of annual favorites (some of Sarasota’s most highly-awarded fine dining restaurants plus casual classics serving the freshest seafood on Siesta Key and St Armands Circle plus in Downtown Sarasota) and new participants (so many of the hottest new eateries around town and throughout the County!).
New restaurants to the program this year include:
