SARASOTA, Fla. — Sage Restaurant, a culinary destination offering worldly cuisine and crafted cocktails in downtown Sarasota, recently launched their seasonal menu for summer, which includes a number of new entrees, appetizers and cocktails.
The culinary team, led by executive chef Christopher Covelli, has continued to honor the restaurant’s mission of offering a global culinary experience by frequently introducing new menu items that demonstrate French, Italian and Asian influence.
“We are pleased to offer guests a diverse menu using seasonal ingredients,” said Covelli, co-owner of Sage Restaurant. “Summers in Sarasota get very humid, so we’ve created new dishes that will satisfy diners with robust flavors but won’t leave them feeling heavy.”
Some of the new seasonal entrees include zucchini blossoms stuffed with mirepoix, red onion, zucchini and yellow squash over a curry honey yogurt; pickled peach salad with Boursin cheese, basil-ginger pistou, Fresno chilis and mixed greens; pan seared foie gras with blue corn and foie tamale and a pipian rojo gelato; steamed hake in a banana leaf with cilantro chutney, roasted tomatoes and turmeric rice; and grilled Spanish octopus with nuoc mam and pickled watermelon over crispy farro, among others.
The new seasonal cocktail list offers a number of creative and refreshing alcoholic beverages crafted by Sage Restaurant bartenders, including the Vitamin Bee, Mare Azul and Monday Motivation, among others.
