Hi Ladies, Please note that the below info is posted as a placeholder only. The dinner events are posted separately for you to RSVP. No need to RSVP here, but rather, choose the Savor Sarasota event(s) you want to attend and RSVP to each one independently. We have maxed each event to 12 people, but as we get a waitlist, we will open it up for more. Each Savor Sarasota event is posted separately. ORIGINAL MESSAGE: This year’s Savor Sarasota Restaurant Week is happening Saturday, June 1 through Friday, June 14, 2019. There are many great restaurants participating in this year’s event - let’s take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to experience some new (and maybe old) places that would satisfy our cravings for great food and great company!! I am going to reserve 2 evenings and 1 afternoon for us to get together to dine at some of these great venues. Take a look at the dates below and mark your calendars. In the meantime, I will contact some of the venues to ensure that they can take our reservation. We will max it at no more than 12 guests per event and I want to ensure that they will allow us separate checks. The prix-fixe lunch price is $16 per person and pre-fixe dinner price is $32 per person. This does not include drinks. But the food is always abundant and fulfilling!! I will fill in the locations as I can reserve our dates. And, of course, please feed me with your suggestions of places you have tried and loved, or places you would like to experience!!
