Savoring Sarasota

Mark your calendars, folks, and save up some money to gas up your cars. June 1 marks the start of the Second Annual Savor Sarasota Restaurant Week (actually, it runs for 10 days, but a "week" sounded better). A few months back, I talked about the great dining available south of the Skyway, so here's your chance.

All of the participating restaurants will be serving multicourse lunches and dinners for a mere $15 and $25, respectively. My favorites? Derek's, Bijou, Canvas Cafe, Vernona and Selva Grill, but almost all of the places on the list are worth a visit at these prices.

Don't want to make the trip? How about a provocative statement to rile up the Tampa scene and drag you down south? When it comes to innovative and exciting fine dining, Sarasota has a better core group of chefs than the Bay Area.

Ooohh, snap!
