As has been widely reported, Sarasota has lost some great restaurants in the past several weeks. The closings of Canvas Cafe, 5 One 6 Burns, Sierra Station and Sangria will be felt by everyone who lives and visits Sarasota. Each of those places had their niche in our dining scene. Each also had with a loyal band of followers. They will be missed.
Here are some links to the news accounts.
On a brighter note, Station 400 hopes to open their doors in the old Sierra Station space sometime in August. We don’t have all the details yet, but, we’ll bring them to you as soon as we do. Also in August, Alex Amaro from Sangria is opening his new venture, a club called Ivory. They will be occupying the old Grape on Main Street.
Did Euphemia Haye close?
No, Euphemia Haye is still alive and well and serving awesome food on Longboat Key. If you haven’t been there in a while, it’s worth the trip for sure. The duck and the peppered steak are both fantastic. The Haye Loft is a great way to finish any meal.
Its good to hear that Alex Amaro from Sangria is opining their own restaurant. I’ll wait for further details.
