[GoodBite]  Sage Kicks it Into High Gear to Celebrate First Year in Business With New Menu Launch
Brittany Mattie, brittany.mattie@srqme.com

With a year under their sartorial apron belts, the culinary curators behind the swinging chrome door of Sage’s fine-dining kitchen are wiping the slate clean for round two. “2019 was the year of getting established,” says Sous Chef Brett Wagner. “Now we have our feet on the ground and we’re ready to climb.” Combining illustrious ingredients with meticulous flair, Wagner’s own version of Rabbit Rillettes—a decadent, slow-cooked variant of pâté with cucumber gelatin and California white sturgeon caviar—is among the new Spring menu’s arsenal of boundary-pushing appetizer selections.

“We’re going to raise everyone’s standard of what they think food can be,” he says.

Gently nudging diners out of their comfort zones, Executive Chef Chris Covelli brings out the big guns with more anomalous proteins like Shredded Roasted Duck—wrapped in phyllo with a ginger-soy hoisin sauce; Sauteed Chicken Liver—wrapped inside a foie gras dumpling with shallots cooked in GranGala and butter, served in a star anise broth; Wild Boar Raviolo—finished in a demi-glace and topped with a mascarpone cream sauce; and Boquerones (European anchovies) with roasted eggplant and onion in a black garlic aioli, frisée and Spanish sherry foam.

“Rest assured, Chef Covelli isn’t playing any games with this one,” says Zach Dauth, director of marketing and events at Sage. 

Full of unexpected flavors, exceptional plating and classic European cooking tactics of renowned global dishes, the first-anniversary menu is a testament to the success of the last 12 months for the First Street haunt. With elegant, yet approachable service in the front of house, and a streamlined mise en place process in the back of house, the world-class culinary experience of Sage is not losing traction any time soon. “I’m so proud of what we have been able to accomplish in our first year, and the way we’ve been able to connect to the community,” says Covelli. “But this is no time to get complacent. We’re staying humble and focusing on precision. You’re only as good as your last meal.”

Keep your eyes peeled for Sage’s new seasonal menu, launching Wednesday, January 29.

[Real Estate]  New Ownership of Premiere Downtown Office Building Invests $1M in Capital Improvements

Savlan Capital, the new owners of the Bradenton Financial Center, located at 1401 Manatee Ave West, have made a considerable play on the future of Bradenton's tallest office building. The company purchased the property in June of 2019 with the intention of bringing the iconic building into the 21st century with strategic capital improvements. 

The owners are investing $1M in capital improvements in both exterior and interior upgrades. The exterior of the building and attached garage have received new paint, a refreshed landscape design, and a series of silk artwork banners outlining the property. Updates to the interior of the building include a total lobby redesign, a marine life wire-art installation, as well as a new state-of-the-art touch screen directory. Additionally, the common areas and restrooms on each floor are being refreshed and modernized.  Updates are being completed throughout the building including move-in ready suites. 

“The improvements made to the Bradenton Financial Center are great.  Bank of America joined Merrill Lynch in the building last year and we are excited to be located in this iconic building with the best views in Bradenton.  We appreciate the investment the new ownership is making and look forward to our continued relationship."  -- Michael P. McCoy, Bank of America Market President 

[ASID FL West Coast Chapter]  A Legislative Update from ASID FL West Coast Chapter

The government legislative branch and public relations team of The American Society of Interior Designers’ represent the interests of interior design professionals and business owners to advocating on behalf of the profession at both the State and Federal levels. Their primary job is to protect interior designers’ right to practice, while ASID supports the efforts of individuals to become recognized as certified, registered or licensed Interior Designers through the passage of state legislation. ASID advocates for legislation that places no restriction on the use “Interior Designer” but does allow a pathway to creating expanded practice opportunities including full stamping, signing and permitting privileges. “The ability for an interior designer to pull a building permit, independent of an architect or engineer, for their scope of work on a project is fundamental to the advancement of this profession,” explains Holly Dennis, ASID-FLWC legislative chair. “Both at the federal and state level, interior designers are significantly disadvantaged and many times not allowed to bid government funded projects, therefore they are put at a competitive disadvantage relative to architects and engineers.”

The ASID-FLWC Chapter adopts and follows the same legislative strategic plan as its National organization that is applicable to the state of Florida. Dennis engages with the organization’s National Vice President of Government & Public Affairs and the other Florida chapter legislative chairs to develop ways that they can actively lobby for and defend the professional practice of interior design. “Last year, I traveled to Tallahassee twice to speak before the Florida House of Representatives subcommittee hearings and personally wrote letters to our local State Representatives and Senators,” Dennis says. “We provide tools for our members so that they can also effectively contact the legislators in their respective districts.” ASID-FLWC (as well as North and South Chapters) is preparing to battle yet another deregulation effort this coming 2020 Session. Senate Bill 474 Deregulation of Professions and Occupations was introduced by Senator Ben Albritton, District 26 in early October 2019. A House of Representatives companion Bill to SB474 has not yet been led. “ASID establishes a unifying voice,” says Dennis, “so that interior designers have the power to design a better future for themselves and the entire profession."

Beginning in the twelfth century, Indian kings and religious institutions hired painters to add illustrations to religious and secular manuscripts.

This talk offers a brief introduction to the art of Indian manuscript painting and the vibrant cultural contexts in which the art form thrived. It offers glimpses into the courts of emperors and maharajas, and into the myths and legends that instructed and entertained them.">
