Mainland Sarasota Restaurants
Enjoy dining out? From white-tablecloth haute cuisine establishments to Tiki-hut bars where shirts and shoes are optional, you’ll find hundreds of places to sample local fare. Taking full advantage of Florida fields and waters, our chefs serve up everything from classic French and casual Italian to Sardinian, Thai, Cuban, Mexican, Peruvian, Brazilian, Moroccan, and “Floribbean.” Heirloom citrus groves, Amish pie contests, open-pit barbecues, and organic vegetable farms all add to the flavors of Sarasota.
Whether your taste runs to Margaritas or Margaux; caparinha or craft beers, cozy pubs, colorful outdoor bars, and chic lounges contribute to our lively, after-dark buzz.
