Looking for a delicious dinner after the Sarasota Art Festival on main street next weekend. I do realize this night coincides with Valentines day evening, historically one of the worst times to try to find a delicious meal.

One idea suggested was Salute on 23 North Lemon Avenue based on TripAdvisor reviews and proximity to Whole Foods where we need to stop before driving back to Tampa. (we have Tri-Tip roasts reserved there to put on a Big Green Egg the next day). But Salute's Yelp reviews are iffy.

Decision influencers
- Deliciousness. This is the "special meal out" for the next couple of months.
- Ambiance. When traveling (visiting from Austin, TX), I care more about ambiance than when at home.
- Price. If we could keep it under $75 per person that would be great. Less in price is great if above factors are there.
- One person is allergic to seafood. I enjoy everything including seafood. So it can't be seafood-only delicious :-).
