We visited a new restaurant in downtown Sarasota with friends, Boca. I loved the interior design of the restaurant, it has a very hip, industrial, yet warm vibe. Each table had a small herb plant in middle of the table; ours was a fragrant basil plant.

The menu was interesting as well. My husband and I chose to share the Zucchini Fries with a Green Goddess Dip. It was served in a cute little paper bag on a wooden platter.
A couple sitting at a table next to us had the Grilled Hangar Steak Platter and Sweet Potato Gnocci that looked so appetizing that we said "We'll have what they're having". The steak platter came with roasted potatoes and vegetables, and my husband enjoyed it.

My gnocci was wonderful. It had chunks of butternut squash and sliced mushrooms in a parmesan cream sauce. I would definitely order that again.
We shared a tasty fruit cobbler for dessert that was served in a small skillet, and even between the two of us we couldn't finish it.

What a lovely meal. But more than that, what a beautiful place. Fingers crossed it survives. I'm writing this late afternoon on Sunday and haven't seen a weather report for about 4 hours.ReplyDelete
The restaurant and meal look wonderful. I hope all is well for you at your vacation home in Florida. I understand because we have a condo on the East coast of Florida.. Let's hope everyone fares well and we have many more wonderful vacations in FloridaReplyDelete
Wishing you good luck with the condition of your property! AndReplyDelete
hoping the storm will weaken before doing too much damage to all the others in the city and state!
We enjoyed a visit to relatives in Sarasota not too long ago as well, and felt the restaurants there were very nice, though I don't think we found the one you featured in this post. Our relatives' home is in danger, but they managed to leave in time and are waiting it out far from Florida.

Oh, yum - everything looks so good! Sounds like a great restaurant. I am originally from NY state (Rochester) and we sometimes go through Sarasota - will have to look for this one.ReplyDelete

We're praying for everyone in Florida - there are quite a few people up here weathering out the storm. That restaurant looks wonderful!ReplyDelete
It was good to see everyone heed the warnings, hopefully they can return home soon.Delete
