On a recent Saturday, between running real estate related errands on Longboat and St. Armands Key,  Jill and I treated ourselves to lunch at this landmark establishment on “The Circle”, as St. Armands Circle is known to the locals.  It’s my belief that you can’t actually qualify for a Sarasota “local’s” license if you haven’t eaten at The…read more
