Had a great time at the Sarasota-Manatee Restaurant Week kick-off party the other night tasting wonderful local food and beer from some of the restaurants in the group called Sarasota-Manatee Originals. The group is made up of over fifty independent restaurants in the Suncoast area. "Their deep local roots and world-class talent have led to some of the most diverse, original and creative restaurants anywhere." (Eat Like a Local dining guide)
Pictured are just a few offerings I tasted at the party. For a complete listing of participating restaurants and their Restaurant Week menus visit www.eatlikealocal.com. Restaurant Week is October 2nd - 15th. Be sure to share some love and support local. Enjoy!
