SRQ Reviews Network - Dining Guide

Dining out can be an interesting and at times an exciting adventure. The experience of a trying something new such as a recipe, drink, or ethnic specialty adds to this adventure. However trying a brand new restaurant can be quite adventuresome. There are unknown elements and potential risks which add to the excitement and enjoyment. What type of cuisine? How is the food? What about prices? Location? Service? are only a few of these aspects.

Destination Dining: New Restaurants in Sarasota is designed to be a dynamic, ever changing, evolving flow of information on new places to dine in Sarasota and surrounding areas. SRQ Reviews will attempt to provide timely, informative updates, brief notes, comments, and initial impressions on the newest places to dine in Sarasota.

Generally we will keep a restaurant on this list for a 3-6 month period. Once a detailed review has been completed by SRQ Reviews, we will provide a link to the information.Pomona Bistro Sarasota
