#FALL… Summer is in the rearview mirror. A glance at the thermometer may not tell the whole story. But, fall is closing in fast. Autumn in the Sarasota restaurant world means vacation time. Lots of our local places shutter for a few weeks of physical and mental health rehab. When our Sarasota restaurants are at full tilt people are working their butts off. So, it’s time for a little long overdue R & R. This time of year also brings a flurry of openings. It’s the perfect time to get a jump on things and check out a new place before the lines start forming again. Oh, and they will form. Here’s a plan, go to the end of this newsletter. Pick two new spots and visit them before we say goodbye to September. Report back if you think you’ve found your next favorite Sarasota restaurant… BEER+DINNER, FINS AT SHARKEY’S teams with JDubs (one if my personal favs) for a beer dinner. Should be quite a night. $60PP++ for a five course dinner with beer pairings. Info HERE or call 941-999-3467 for res… HAPPY HOUR CLOCK, Here’s an interesting happy hour variation. OAK & STONE has a “beerwall clock”. Beer discounts range from full price to 40% off depending on the time of day. Go early or stay late and save!... SCALLOPALOOZA, Time for the 6th annual event to benefit SARASOTA BAYWATCH. Sat, Sept 24th. $100PP, hosted at the Sarasota Yacht Club. More info and tickets HERE... 9 IS YOUR LUCKY #, Dine to the 9’s. That’s the theme of the Sarasota-Manatee Originals Restaurant Week. 46 restaurants will be participating from Oct 3rd-9th. Breakfasts & lunches for $9, $19 & $29. Dinners for $19, $29 & $39 (per peson). Here’s where you can get DETAILS and a list of participating restaurants. OK, here we go. Let's get to some food news...

Odds & Ends

...The Exit

INS & OUTS… We said we had some new spots for you to give a whirl. Here’s your to-do list. Since our last edition we’ve added, THE CORAL HOUSE, CAFÉ BARBOSSO, BOCA KITCHEN, LILA and BUTTERMILK HANDCRAFTED FOOD. Those are some real contenders for your dining dollars. Unfortunately, we had to hit the delete button on two places. Cosimo’s Trattoria & Bar and Southside Grill. That brings our Sarasota restaurant database to 351 and climbing!
