Hi, Florida hounds! I need your assistance please. My family has a place on LBK and I have been visiting the area for the past 7 years or so. We typically have dinner at Patti George's, Euphemia Haye, and Madison's. I definitely really like all of those places. However, in a few weeks, my husband and I are having a successful chef friend of ours visit along with his wife. While we are most definitely foodies, he takes it to a whole new level--just loves great food and great service. Do you have any suggestions for other places in the area (Sarasota, Anna Marie Island, and Siesta Key are all fine) that might be up to his standards? (We do plan visits to PG's and E.H.'s.) I have searched this board and found mixed reviews of several places, like Zoria's. My parents have recommended we go to Michael's on East. Suggestions? Also any ideas for good nightspots for drinks and live music? We range in age from 35 to 50 years old. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
