Last year was tough on restaurants as the pandemic shut them out of their passion for cooking. Patrons quarantined at home and not able to visit their favorite eateries. Many restaurants above the challenges of finding new ways to deliver their goods via delivery, curbside, hands-free options, and more. As the pandemic reopened, they faced smaller customer bases, huge staffing issues, and vendor supply issues as the world reopened. Through it all, they are persevering and trying to get back to what they do best. They bring some of the best foods to those here on the Suncoast every day to enjoy. This is your opportunity to check out some restaurants that maybe you haven’t had a chance to previously. Additionally, you help support an industry that needs a boost. Hope to see everyone out and about at Savor Sarasota between June 1 and June 14, 2021!
