Relatively new to the area, SarasotaFoodie “Hot Spots” are those exciting, busy restaurants receiving a lot of media buzz and much deserved attention. We recommend you call in advance for seating and hours of operation on any Hot Spot on our blog. Some are busier at different times of the day or week. Others may still be going through growing pains and we wish them all the very best! They deserve their “Hot Spot” designation.
