A Culinary Experience 

Led by owner Sharon Carole and Executive Chef Christopher Covelli, this historic Mediterranean-style building has been re-designed into an eclectic dining space while retaining the character and integrity of the original Sarasota Times Newspaper building.

Sage features a multi-level dining room with a vintage copper cocktail bar, 3400 sq. ft. of private event space and a covered rooftop lounge with 360° views of downtown Sarasota.

The Sage team has a world-class restaurant savvy that showcases their talents in the flourishing sophisticated, historic location. By highlighting bold, bright flavors that stand out in the warm weather, the team at Sage is able to emphasize the freshness of seasonally sourced vegetables alongside light proteins. 

The menu is seasonal and globally inspired, combining fresh ingredients and cooking styles from around the world. Both vegan and gluten-free friendly, Sage has options for everyone.
