If you’re looking for artisanal foods with an international flair, Antoine’s Restaurant is a must. With dinner specialties to please the pickiest of your party, head out to their new location at 1100 N. Tuttle Ave. in Sarasota for an evening to remember.

If you have never had Lobster and salmon lasagna, this is the place to try it. You can also order seared salmon with steamed vegetable bouquetiere, seared sea scallops on risotto with candied tangerine beurre blanc sauce, or Alaskan halibut on mashed potatoes, with sauce Vierge. All seafood courses come with various sides.
