Okay, menu sneak peek for you all! One of the starters Chef Steve has confirmed are his Crispy Parmesan Beignets accompanied by Florida Orange Blossom Honey, Pears and Spice-Glazed Pistachios. The only word is yum.
But all that crispy sweetness is sure to make you thirsty, and that’s why we’re also excited to offer a great selection of artisanal beers and wines with a local focus. The variety of beers available in Florida is better than we expected — our friend A.D. Lewis from J.J. Taylor Distributing has helped us to select the Orange Blossom Pilsner from Orlando, for one.
The OBP is going to be killer paired with our Crispy Parmesan Beignets, and so is Porter Family Vineyards’ 2009 Chardonnay. The Porters live half of the year in Sarasota and spend the other half of the year tending to their grapes in Napa, so we’re proud to have another local connection on our wine list.
It’s been a tough job finding all these tasty beverages to share with you, Sarasota, but we’re going to keep up the hard work until we open this summer! Join us then to try them all yourself.
