Good Bite


Southside Village’s popular Blasé Bistro & Martini Bar has re-opened for happy hour and dinner with a newly designed Mediterranean menu. The new menu offers a creative blend of house made dishes that typify a classic euro-style dining experience.

Open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday, diners can choose to dine in with the safe-guard of appropriately spaced tables, enhanced cleaning and safety measure practices, and newly installed special air conditioning filter system. The bistro is also taking online orders for takeout and curbside pickup, which also includes packaged liquor options. For those staying in and wanting delivery service, orders can be made through BiteSquad.

Menu prices range from $8 to $27 with 15 plates under $20 as well as a Savor Sarasota 3-course menu, June 1-14, for $32/person , which includes a Chopped Summer Vegetable Salad, Cioppino and Pineapple Cake with Rum Caramel.

Happy Hour is also back 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 pm. Tuesdays-Thursdays and 10 pm. on Fridays and Saturdays.

Blasé Bistro’s 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.

“We designed the new menu with the diner in mind, dishes they can enjoy at the restaurant or for takeout,” said Kevin Skiest, partner and co-owner with Cindy Breslin, who also both own and operate Blasé Café and Pi 3.14 on Siesta Key. “We understand and are happy to accommodate people’s preferences for dining in or out, which also includes packaged liquor options,” Skiest added.
