We look forward to having you soon as our guest to try them all!

It's been great listening to all the positive feedback from guests who attended The 100 Mile Dinner on Monday, March 26th.  We would like to thank Edible Sarasota and all of our guests for a truly memorable evening.  We at Indigenous love to educate our guests, and these dinner events are perfect way of doing so.  We are thinking 200 Miler Dinner next...

Holidays at Indigenous

The Holidays are here already.  We have great news if you are planning a last minute party for your friends, family, or business.  The Indigenous bar is a perfect place for parties up to 22 people and can be exclusively yours for a small fee. We have outdoor space where we can accomodate you as well.  There are plenty of dates still available. Please call to inquire. 941.706.4740. Happy Holidays!

Wow, it has been two months since we opened the restaurant and everything has been going so well!  Even with the cooler nights outside we have been booked every weekend night since the opening. Response is amazing towards the ambiance, food, service etc., but the big standout is that people are going absolutely bonkers over the Wild Mushroom Bisque.  This creamy, earthy bowl of love is a unique blend of dried porcini’s, fresh shiitakes and cremini’s with brown butter rye croutons and truffle oil.  Some guests say they could eat it everyday for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and even one guest claims she could “bathe’ in this soup for therapy……well ok…its damn good.  Going through approximately 6 cases of each type of mushroom a week, this soup is in constant production daily!  Looks like we will be keeping this one on the menu through the winter as we prepare to make the seasonal menu change from late summer/fall to winter for the season……….yummers!
