A full two weeks of wining and dining
It clearly says RESTAURANT WEEK. You can see it as plainly as I can. But, for lucky Sarasota diners it is happily not the case. The Sarasota restaurant taste-a-thon that is annually sponsored by Visit Sarasota County is a full two week affair. Thats great news because there would be hardly time enough to scratch the surface in one meager week.
Starting on June 1st and running through the 14th, locals and visitors will have the opportunity to dine at some great restaurants from specially planned menus. And, heres the best part, all of those menus are offered at special prices. This year 44 Sarasota restaurants will be showing off their best for legions of hungry food fans.
Traditional favorites like The Bijou Café, Michaels on East and Euphemia Haye will be standing shoulder to shoulder with newcomers, The Blue Rooster and Ziti at this years event. Its a truly unique two weeks for Sarasota restaurant goers.
Excited for a little sample? I thought you would never ask. Take a peek at whats on the menu over at Darwins on 4th.
Dinner First Course (Choice of one)
Corvina, leche de tigre, red onions, cilantro, sweet potato, cancha, Cuzco corn skewer
Andean Chaufa Quinoa
Peruvian stir fry quinoa with duck, shrimp, pork, sweet plantains and egg.
Dinner Second Course (Choice of one)
Chef Darwin’s Skirt Steak
Sweet plantains, chimichurri, beet relish
Grilled duck breast, cilantro and green pea risotto, criolla roasted red peppers.
Dinner Third Course (Choice of one)
“Tumbao”Pot of Mousse
Bittersweet and white chocolate mousses, dark chocolate “pot” cafe cappuccino, tartufo chocolate, mango and raspberry sauce.
Pastel De Tres Leches
Extra moist cake soaked in three-milks, stawberries and meringue. Served with strawberry gelato
Not bad for $29.00 plus tax and tip. Some restaurants have been known to keep these special menus and prices rolling right through the summer. But, I wouldnt take a chance on missing the fantastic food and superb pricing. To be safe you had better get there the first two weeks of June.
Heres the complete list of restaurants participating in this years Savor Sarasota Restaurant Week.
