(Sarasota and Holmes Beach, Florida) – Sean Murphy, the owner of the Eat Here restaurant family and Beach Bistro, is pleased to announce the transition of Eat Here’s Sarasota location to World of Beer.
“World of Beer contacted us with an unsolicited but very compelling offer to buy out our lease. The offer was attractive enough we could not refuse it. They are significantly extending the term of the lease and will be an excellent fit for the location.”
“The Eat Here family’s smaller restaurants on Anna Maria Island and Siesta Key will continue offering chef-focused, chef-crafted, coastal cookery at their island locations.”
“The World of Beer will do very well at the fountain and urban park location at Links and Main. There is a momentous excitement brewing in the neighborhood now with the opening of McCurdy’s comedy store. The World of Beer will be a great addition to a refreshed entertainment district.”
Sean Murphy explained the change to World of Beer as a perfect fit for the location.
“Eat Here is about great food, first and foremost. Our personal service style and chef-crafted menu creations are better suited to a smaller space. Most of the senior Eat Here staff will be offered positions at our other restaurants. Their presence will strengthen our performance on the two islands. We have been offered promising smaller premises in St Pete and Tampa.”
“I am pleased that we have a great tenant for the Kauffman family. Dr Kauffman is a true gentlemen. He has always treated us graciously and generously. I will miss him. He loves our blue tomato soup. I have promised him that every month I will bring him a quart.”
Dean Lambert, one of the managing partners of the World of Beer on University Parkway is excited about the new location. “ It will be an excellent showcase for our extensive offerings of craft beer and our new food menu. World of Beer will be opening on Main in the early fall.”
World of Beer will also co-sponsor the Beach Bistro Culinary Winter Carnival in January of next year. The Bistro’s Culinary Carnival features the best chefs of the south, winemakers, chef bartenders and now, beer craftsmen, at a culinary celebration on Anna Maria Island in aid of children’s hospitals.
