Blasé Bistro & Martini Bar To Open in Southside Village

Hunting & Gathering


The opening of Blasé Bistro & Martini Bar becomes reality on Thursday, November 14. Partners Cindy Breslin and Kevin Skiest welcome diners into Sarasota’s new French Mediterranean dining experience, exhibiting a romantic, artsy, upscale-casual environment surrounded with deep purples, burnt oranges and original art. Capitalizing on Breslin’s 22+ year restaurant experience as the owner of Blasé Café & Martini Bar on Siesta Key, the two partners collaborated with their culinary team to create an innovative menu profiling the flavors of the Mediterranea and dishes that showcase the iconic touches of France, along with chef-driven influences. Adding to the ambiance and visual appeal of Blasé Bistro is the marble curved original bar from the Don Cesar in St. Petersburg. The bar was moved from Blasé Café on Siesta Key, to further enhance the visual allure of the Bistro. 

Menu highlights and signature dishes include Hors d’oeuvres ranging from a Cauliflower Bisque, Ratatouille Tartine and Butternut Squash Agnolotti to an enticing Charcuterie & Fromage plate. Fruits De Mer offer creative twists including Oysters with Cucumber Mignonette, Yellowfin Tuna Ceviche with Coconut Broth and Crispy Wild Rice, Shrimp Kadalfi and Red Curry Mussels with Lime Gremolata and Laffa Bread, a housemade garlic flat bread. Mains include a vegetarian Pasta Cynthia, Crispy Whole Red Snapper and Day Boat Scallops with Roasted Savoy Cabbage and Caviar Crème Fraiche. Additionally, Plats du Jour presents daily specials that spin off the European traditions of homemade pastas, Cioppino and Roasted Chicken Bowl, to name a few. For the something sweet, selections include Clafouti with Grand Marnier Marinated Fruit, Chocolate Pot de Crème and Ricotta Beignets.  On the sipping side, innovative craft cocktail and martini menus along with a thoughtfully selected wine list including 12 wines by the glass, and champagne splits are also available.

Blasé Bistro & Martini Bar, 1920 Hillview St., in Sarasota’s Southside Village. For more information and restaurant updates, visit or call 941-312-6850.
