It’s Time to Savor Sarasota

This is one of those unique epicurean events in Sarasota that EVERY Foodie will adore.

The first two weeks of June are home to Savor Sarasota, a chance for foodies to experience some of the best restaurants in town as discounted prices.  Got your attention yet?

Starting tomorrow, June 1st – 14th, 2012, 36 locally owned and operated restaurants from Venice to the end of Longboat Key are offering specially priced lunch and dinner menus that feature some of their most acclaimed dishes.  And let me remind you that these aren’t chain restaurants with fry cooks fresh out of high school.  These are big time award winning chefs, like James Beard nominated chef Derek Barnes of Derek’s Culinary Casual, and Dylan Elhajoui, Executive Chef of Mosaic – voted #1 most liked restaurant on Florida’s entire gulf coast.

When Mart and I dine out and blog for SarasotaFoodies, we pay the same tab everyone else pays. . . so blogging can get pretty expensive.  So we’re so darn excited, thrilled, stoked. . . you name it. . . for the chance to return to our favorite restaurants, have a-maz-ing food and not break the bank!  Expect a lot of new blogs over the next two weeks.  (Maybe we’ll stock pile a few blogs so we can look like big spenders later.  Hmmm. . .)

Can you imagine enjoying a three course lunch at the Verona dining room of the Ritz Carlton for $15?  You can during Savor Sarasota!  How about dinner at The Bijou Cafe for $25 a person?  Really?  I’ve spent that much on a glass of wine and an appetizer at an average restaurant!

You just have to love it when such world-class chefs show such world-class, well . . . class . . . to provide this wonderful opportunity so more people enjoy their acclaimed fare.

And just so you know how big a deal this is – Sarasota has the highest concentration of Zagat®-rated restaurants in all of Florida.  A town our size!  So now you can ‘tour’ 36 of our best restaurants and taste your way around the world’s finest cuisines without driving great distances to do it.

Are you still here? What are you waiting for?  Get to the website, pick your favorites and make a reservation!  And pleeeze let us know where you went and what you enjoyed!  We can’t be everywhere, even if we’d like to!
