The SCVB is continuing the tradition of holding the "Savor Sarasota" dining promotion to encourage both visitors and locals alike to experience Sarasota's numerous and varied restaurants and to create more public awareness of the region's award-winning restaurant scene. The event has become one of the most popular culinary events in the state over the past three years, as it encourages food and wine lovers to visit Sarasota to imbibe in the best of the region's restaurants.
The SCVB has currently recruited over 30 restaurants, many of which have earned Zagat ratings, to participate in the third year of the event, during which patrons will be able to enjoy multi-course meals at participating restaurants for $15 per person for lunch and $25 per person for dinner.
"Sarasota is recognized nationally for our beaches, culture and circus heritage," said Virginia Haley, President of the SCVB. "Savor Sarasota" opens our visitors to the creative cuisine our talented chefs prepare, and we are so pleased that so many of our wonderful restaurants have chosen to participate for the third year in a row."
