#GOBBLEGOBBLE… Yes, it’s that time. I can’t even believe how quick it got here. That’s right, Thanksgiving is nearly upon us. Along with it comes all of the gluttonous, belly full, football watching glory that only this holiday can bring. And, Thanksgiving can bring it. BIG TIME! I know it’s not the “official” start of season here. But, rest assured there will be a surge of folks roaming Siesta Village, downtown and St. Armands. Restaurants will be full. Now’s the time to make plans if you’re thinking of consuming anything except leftovers for the entire weekend. Not a bad thing by the way. If you want to skip the prep, cooking and cleanup of your turkey day meal, we’ve got a list of Sarasota restaurants that will take care of everything. All you have to do is eat… POP THAT CORK, NOV 17th is Beaujolais Nouveau Day! It’s the traditional third Thursday in November release. You should really pick up a few bottles to celebrate… LUNCH COUNTER, FIN’S AT SHARKEY’S is now open 7 days a week for lunch. If you’re planning lunch, this is important info… 4 COURSES, $34, HARRY’S CONTINENTAL KITCHENS on LBK has got a pretty sweet prix fixe deal going on right now. A 4 course dinner for $34PP ($48PP with wine pairings). This could fit right in with your post Thanksgiving non cooking plans… IT’S ALL ABOUT THE SAUCE, Local celebrity Chef Giuliano Hazan has just released his Classic Italian Tomato Sauce. Great news! Here’s the best part, you can just walk right in to CASA ITALIA and pick up a jar! No muss, no fuss… Now on to your Sarasota food and restaurant news!
Odds & Ends
THIS & THAT, We’ve got two in and two out for this update. New on the site are JIM’S SMALL BATCH BAKERY and PRIME SERIOUS STEAK. Located in Gulf Gate, Jim’s has been around for a bit. Not so for Prime. They’re just opening up outside the Westfield Sarasota Square shopping center. We’re glad to include both of them. Sadly, we’ve removed Beckham’s on South Tamiami. And, Derek’s (one of our favs). Good luck to Derek!! This keeps our restaurant count at 352.
