These last few weeks haven’t been easy on anyone, and it’s been even worse for Sarasota restaurants. Although many businesses are starting to open back up, some eateries are continuing to offer curbside pickup or takeout to maintain social distance.
Enjoy a Meal from These Sarasota Restaurants
Restaurants are still struggling to make ends meet, but there are a few ways you can offer them some support. Any time you eat locally, you’re helping small businesses keep their doors open! Here are a few of our favorite Sarasota-owned restaurants that are open for pickup and takeout.
1. Fresh Start Café Breakfast & Lunch
Fresh Start Café is the perfect place if you’re looking for light meals that are a tad fancier than what you’d find in the average diner. Their menu contains a variety of delicious dishes, including a few famous Mediterranean favorites.
As of mid-May, Fresh Start Café is open for takeout from 9am to 2pm every day except Wednesdays.
2. Duval’s Fresh Local Seafood
Just like their name suggests, Duval’s Fresh Local Seafood specializes in seafood dishes that feature fish from local farmers and fishermen. By ordering here, you’ll be supporting countless different industries within your community. This upscale restaurant is also ideal for a fancy dinner or date night at home.
At this time, Duval’s Fresh Local Seafood is available for takeout and delivery from 11am to 10pm most days. Delivery is also free!
3. MADE Restaurant
MADE Restaurant is the place to go for a hearty American meal—their menu is packed with all of your favorite comfort foods! The best part about this eatery is that they source their ingredients locally, so you’ll also be supporting Sarasota’s farmers while enjoying a great meal.
MADE Restaurant has different hours for takeout almost every day, with the exception of Sunday. You check their hours on their website.
Please note that these are not the only local businesses in Sarasota that could use your support. Supporting any local establishment if you have the ability to do so will help your community!
