|Siesta Key, FL – Sean Murphy, owner of the award-winning Beach Bistro and Eat Here restaurants in Sarasota and on Anna Maria Island, is opening a third Eat Here location on Siesta Key. The newest modern American diner is scheduled to open in January, 2013.
Eat Here was named “Best New Restaurant” by SRQ Magazine, Sarasota Herald Tribune and Sarasota Magazine. It celebrates chef-crafted cookery with presentations of local farm products; fresh, locally-caught seafood; inspired pizza and taco cuisine; refreshing, fruit-infused cocktails and craft beer and wine. The newest chef-driven, Gulf Coast cookery on Siesta Key will offer the same winning formula as its predecessors.
Menu preparations are offered in a variety of small plates that are perfect for sharing and larger, individual entrées. Selections included on the menu are: the Killer Grilled Cheese with muenster and gruyere cheeses and caramelized onions; free-range, buttermilk Fried Chicken and Waffles; Lobster Tacos; Lobstercargot; Smoked Salmon & Crème Fraîche Pizza; Island Ribs; Gulf Coast Oyster Fry and New Orleans-style Seafood Stew.
The bar emphasizes classic cocktails and fruit-based drinks made with fresh herbs, Asian spices and top-shelf liquor, as well as craft beer, domestic wine and charcuterie. Weekends feature special events and live entertainment.
Eat Here’s Beach Bistro-trained staff demonstrates the Bistro’s same level of commitment and dedication to providing culinary excellence at accessible pricing for the everyday budget.
