The Tropical Café is located above the shop Tommy Bahamas in St. Armands Circle, Sarasota and is an oasis of peace and cool greenery in the heart of the city. The restaurant has a shaded terrace with large wooden tables which gives the place a Caribbean air and they serve a wide variety of refreshing cocktails. It's a great place to go to cool down or have a romantic drink.
Le Colonne Restaurant is a small restaurant with Italian flair (as its name suggests), and is located in the heart of picturesque St. Armands Circle,one of the most enjoyable neighborhoods in Sarasota. They have a very wide selection of salads, including a wonderful Caesar Salad made with really high-quality Parmesan (which is actually pretty rare) and fresh basil. The portions are huge so you can share a plate or take it with you in a doggy bag.
