Whether you’re a local, new in town or just passing through, The Sarasota-Manatee Originals are ready to feed you!
Original Eats is an epicurean adventure that will take place Friday, January 15 to Sunday, January 31, 2021 to support the local restaurant industry. For this limited time, participating Sarasota-Manatee Originals Member Restaurants, located from the northern tip of Anna Maria Island to the southern beaches of Venice, will each offer their guests a special signature dish.
Each “Original Dish” will be unique in its representation of the character of the people and establishment preparing and serving it. Ranging from appetizers to entrees, all offerings will be priced at $20 and under.
Original Eats was designed to not only showcase the global gastronomy of Florida’s Suncoast, but also to remind the community why “Eating Like A Local” is critical as we enter the new year. As an organization, the Originals continue to look for inventive and engaging ways for people to enjoy the spirit and talents of our local, independent restaurants while prioritizing health and safety. Local is so much more than a place. It’s the people, businesses, cultures and flavors. It’s a collective of voices and ideas. That’s what makes supporting local so special.
Boar’s Head is the official title sponsor of the 2021 Original Eats culinary collaborative.
