My wife and I had dinner there this evening and loved it. It's in an unassuming former house in a residential neighborhood not far from downtown Sarasota. Indigenous certainly lived up to its billing as a James Beard semi-finalist. We elected to be seated outdoors....More

Cozy dining room with outdoor seating. Impeccably prepared fish and most ingredients locally sourced. Refined flavors. Delicious meal. Did not order the beignet appetizer, but it looked amazing.
