Following its mid-March closure due to COVID dining restrictions, Blasé Bistro & Martini Bar will re-open for dinner, online ordering for takeout and curbside pickup, and delivery service through BiteSquad starting Thursday, June 4.  The re-opening includes updated Mediterranean dinner, drink and martini menus.  Options also include packaged liquor for takeout orders that include food.  Menu prices range from $8 to $27 with 15 plates under $20 as well as family-style three-course option for $30/person.

Open Tuesday through Saturday starting at 5 pm, Happy Hour will also resume for in-restaurant dining only Tuesday-Friday from 5 to 6:30 pm  Happy Hour specials include $2 off small plates and $6 select martinis, cocktails, champagne and wine.  Dinner service will be available until 9 p.m. Tuesdays-Thursdays and 10 pm on Fridays and Saturdays.

Blasé Bistro & Martini Bar’s romantic, artsy, and upscale-casual environment is surrounded with color and original art. The ambiance and visual appeal is enhanced a marble curved original bar from the Don Cesar in St. Petersburg, Fla. The bar was moved from Blasé Café on Siesta Key, the first of the Blasé Sarasota restaurants, to complete the euro-visual allure of the Bistro.  Both Blasé Café and Pi 3.14 on Siesta Key, also operated by co-owners Cindy Breslin and Kevin Skiest, are also continuing with takeout and delivery service.  In-restaurant and outside dining resumed May 22 at both Siesta Key restaurants.

New menu highlights include the restaurant’s signature euro-style small and large plates, perfect for sharing or on their own, with several gluten free and vegetarian options. Many dishes can also be adapted to accommodate dietary requests. 

Signature small plates include housemade Agnolotti Pasta with corn puree, wild mushrooms and pine nuts, Spiced Eggplant or Lamb Hummus with housemade Laffa bread, Red Curry Mussels, and Greek Spiced Pork Ribs with charred red cabbage, orange, radish salad and coriander yogurt.  Six Handheld options range from the classic Blasé Angus Burger and Crispy Softshell Crab to The Vedge and Shrimp Salad Sandwich.

For large plates, highlights include Shrimp & Polenta, Orecchiette Pasta with summer vegetables, Steak Frites and a daily Catch of the Day.  A special Family Style three-course option has also been added, which includes Chopped Summer Vegetable Salad, Cioppino and Pineapple Cake with Rum Caramel for $30/person.
