Extravagant nights out at the best restaurants in Sarasota can be enjoyed all year long. However, the warmer months are a great time to enjoy outdoor dining and try out exciting new dishes with bright, summery flavors before the summer slips away.
When it comes to top-notch dining in Sarasota, locals and visitors alike love Stonewood Grill & Tavern for many reasons — such as our dedication to elevating the menu with new additions and specials only available at certain times of the year.
It’s time to do summer right with a trip to Stonewood. Let’s take a look at some of our limited-time summer dishes that will keep you coming back for more all year round. Get ‘em before they’re gone!
Sometimes, all you’re craving is a good old-fashioned American burger, but we can do you one better with our Prime Bourbon Bacon Jam Burger.
With a blended chuck, short rib, and brisket oak-grilled patty, fresh arugula, vine-ripened tomato, aged white cheddar, and our special Four Rose’s bourbon bacon jam made in-house — all on a warm pretzel bun with fries on the side — your craving will be satisfied and then some!
Even if you’re not traveling for the summer, you can take your taste buds on a Sicilian excursion with our Arancini di Risotto.
This appetizer is prepared with creamy bacon parmesan risotto, sweet peas, and fresh mozzarella, then breaded, fried until crispy, and served alongside a sauce trio of house-made roasted garlic tomato, basil pesto, and chardonnay cream. The parmesan dusting on top adds a perfect Italian touch.
Flavors of Italy and France come together beautifully in our Spinach, Brie & Prosciutto Stuffed Chicken.
Panko chicken breast is stuffed with Stonewood’s signature creamed spinach, rich brie cheese, and thin slices of fresh prosciutto. Then, the dish is topped with a house-made thyme mushroom cream sauce and paired with roasted broccolini on the side for a truly unforgettable flavor experience.
Are you still dreaming of the food you enjoyed on your last trip to the islands? Make that dream a reality with our Island Style Pork Tenderloin Medallions this summer.
We begin by brining pork medallions in a brown sugar and ginger marinade and searing them to perfection. Then, the plate is completed with a purple sweet potato mash, a medley of authentic island veggies, and some microgreens accentuated with our house-made mango sauce.
Don’t forget to leave room for dessert during your next trip to Stonewood! This summer, our limited-time dessert is the delicious Pineapple Upside Down Bread Pudding.
We’ve elevated the classic by adding a caramelized brown sugar cherry and pineapple topping with a side of pineapple swirl and toasted coconut ice cream, rum butter drizzle, and a sprinkle of toasted coconut flakes.
