Small Button SRQ

It is summertime in Sarasota and of course that means “shuffle-time” for local restaurants. CanvasCafe_Lrg_03

We bid a fond farewell to 2 SRQ Reviews faves: 5ONE6 Burns and the Canvas Cafe. Both great restaurants exiting the Sarasota dining stage. We will miss both.

The season of summer always brings change to Sarasota dining. This year is no exception. True the tough economy has accelerated the natural process of economic evolution. But just like the tides, our local economy will rise again. With that rise we will see new dining options emerge. In fact we noticed 3 new spots on a short stroll through downtown last night.

So to the owners and staff of 5ONE6 and Canvas Cafe, thank you for being part of the Sarasota dining community. We will miss you. We wish you luck in all your new ventures.
