This restaurant on Main Street in downtown Sarasota is not particularly well-known. Locals and chefs tend to head to their speakeasy/bar behind the restaurant late at night, but the restaurant is quiet with just a few tables occupied. So don't go for a trendy scene...More

Finally, a hip restaurant with great food, great service, and reasonable prices. A friend of ours turned us on to this restaurant one Saturday night. It was after 9:00 pm and most kitchens are closed. This restaurant serves late into the evening and their menu...More

The food was so good and overall it was well priced. Our server, Nicha, was so friendly and MADE the experience. The drinks were amazing and their Cracklin' Nachos were literally heaven.

Great food here - interesting, fun choices! Rabbit tacos - yes please! Grilled Cheese is yummy! They change the menu a bit each season so we don't get bored! It's our go-to place!

Reviewed 12 March 2017

The restaurant looked unprepossessing: fairly austere, the outdoor area was sparse and there were very few occupied tables inside. The food was just the opposite. The menu was inventive, varied, appropriately seasonal; the varied wine list was full of reasonably-priced wine from largely unknown wineries....More

Casual New American/Eclectic restaurant open seven nights a week for dinner. Perfect for a mel with friends, pre or post thater dinner, a romantic evening for two, or a girls' night out! We are chef-owned and operated, and we support local farms as much as possible.
