If intriguing exhibits and fascinating architecture aren’t enough to draw you to the recently reopened Sarasota Art Museum of Ringling College, then perhaps its latest addition, Bistro, will tempt you.

Executive chef Kaytlin Dangaran serves up a seasonal menu inspired by local Florida farm stands, but Bistro offers its guests more than just a delicious meal. The eatery draws its design inspiration from both the 1926 M. Leo Elliott neo-Gothic building and Paul Rudolph’s 1951 Modernist building.

Outfitted with Rudolph-inspired banquettes, tile that mirrors the Brickcrete façade of the Rudolph building, and tables, benches and finishes made from 600-year-old longleaf heart pine reclaimed from the Elliott building, Bistro delivers a feast for the eyes as well.
