Savoring Sarasota

This past Thursday the team, including Kristine, Lindsey, Jillian, Andy, and Eve found themselves tasked with the awful job of trying wonderful food at the preview party for this year’s Savor Sarasota, hosted by Mattison’s Forty-One.

Who doesn’t love work that requires one to “try” some of the exquisite menu items by five local restauranteurs and enjoy the ambiance created in Mattison’s back room? Our life is so hard!


Libby’s Cafe & Bar featured a delicious Toasted Wheatberry ‘N Roasted Brussels Sprouts Salad which I can only assume will be a hot ticked item for this year’s Savor Sarasota. This dish is one of the many items that is a part of the turn towards locally grown and healthful offerings available on their menu.


Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar presented a tasty steak crustini, of which all us enjoyed - except for Andy, crazy vegetarian! When done well this dish is a really delicate marriage between the crusty, warm bread and well marinated steak which creates a textural experience of salty and savory tastes.


Mozaic out did themselves once again with a to die for homemade passionfruit sorbet, a dark chocolate molten cake, and a white chocolate ginger something. We all liked it so much, we forgot to ask what it was called. See Kristine’s video blog with Mozaic for all the details we left out.


With Cafe L’Europe it wasn’t just about the food but the experience of making ze citrus and Grand Marnier crepe. They were so delicious that we ate every last one the chef was willing to make.


Mattison’s, other than hosting an amazing evening, also served a farm fresh dish of free range chicken breast with wild mushroom bread pudding, sautéed kale, and carrot fondu. Chef Paul continues to impress with his flavorful, unique, and healthy fare at each of his locations.

Throughout the evening we at Nickel Communications shot five video blogs featuring each of the chefs from Mattison’s Forty-One, Libby’s Cafe & Bar, Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, Cafe L’Europe and Mozaic. These videos can be viewed from the Savor Sarasota website and continue to check out our blog for more updates and reviews this season!
