Sarasota, Fla. — A new restaurant is now open in Siesta Key: BRAVO Coastal Bar & Kitchen. Built from the ground up, BRAVO Coastal Bar & Kitchen is a distinctive twist on two popular restaurants: BRAVO Cucina Italiana and BRIO Tuscan Grille. Located at Westfield Siesta Key in Sarasota, Fla., the restaurant opened on August 31, 2017.

Unique to this concept and brand, BRAVO Coastal will showcase a bakery. Opening at 8 a.m. 7 days a week, the BRAVO Coastal Bar & Kitchen Bakery will offer baked goods from the pastry case at the front of the restaurant, as well as coffee.

Welcoming with a relaxed feel, the restaurant features urban coastal décor with exposed beams and wood tables. The large outdoor terrace features fire pits, comfortable lounge seating and interactive games.

“Dining habits are evolving, so we are evolving with our guests,” says Brian O’Malley, CEO of Columbus, Ohio-based BRAVO|BRIO Restaurant Group (BBRG). “We are pleased to introduce BRAVO Coastal Bar & Kitchen in Siesta Key, to present an urban coastal atmosphere with great food and drinks, and the exceptional hospitality for which our restaurants are known. This concept merges the best of BRIO and BRAVO dishes, as well as new, exciting fresh shareable dishes prepared exclusively at BRAVO Coastal Bar & Kitchen.”
