Are you looking for a fresh alternative to heavy or fatty foods this summer? This local eatery and juicing business were started in our own community to provide plant nutrition options to the Suncoast. Not only do they marry amazing fruit and plant fresh options from produce grown here in Manatee and Sarasota County, but they also have some amazing event options. From Spin Saturdays, where you can get some of their fan-favorite tater tots, buffalo tofu sandwiches, and more until midnight. Don’t binge on junk food as you hang out on the beach or take in other Suncoast events, but keep it fresh and healthy. Additionally, they have Art Markets featuring live music, art, and vendors on the first and second Friday and Saturday nights of the month. Wednesdays, they offer runs to the sunset and then yoga and smoothie and juice discounts. What will this amazing Juicery and Kitchen come up with next? Come on in and check it out!

As the picture here shows, this is an amazingly located eatery and Wine bar in Englewood. The sunsets from the outdoor seating area are enhanced with live music on certain nights and a wonderful menu. This is not a full entree-driven eatery, but rather they serve a variety of lighter choices and main courses, appetizers, and entrees. All fresh ingredients, nothing fried. From Seared Crab Cakes to the Jono’s New England Clam Chowder and amazing salad options, you can definitely find something to whet your appetite.
