From downtown gourmet at Lan to Siesta Key casual at the Daiquiri Deck, two Sarasota restaurants charmed us this week.
Blueberry heaven at Lan.
Colorful oyster shooters at the Daiquiri Deck.
I confess to thinking of the Daiquiri Deck as a younger person’s hangout, also somewhat touristy. Not that there is anything wrong with that—I just haven’t taken the food seriously. It seemed average at best. Well, along with with the new patio came some new menu items that are a step up in flavor. The new oyster bar is a re-creation from the old Speakeasy Bar, offering fresh oysters with caviar and a variety of oyster shooters. With a flavorful snapper wrapper sandwich and some pretty good oysters Rockefeller, I will don the flip-flops and head over to play tourist in my own town this summer.
