CONNOISSEUR of shopping and dining.

The ever-expanding array of refined shopping, dining and diversions within moments of the Ritz-Carlton is soon to include the sparkling yacht harbor and waterfront park of Quay Sarasota, an exciting new destination with plans for shopping, dining and water-inspired recreation – all just steps from The Residences.

Waterfront dining options within The Ritz-Carlton include the renowned Jack Dusty for fresh coastal cuisine and craft cocktails, Terrace Café at The Ritz-Carlton Spa & Salon, and a new fine dining establishment downstairs.

Everything from craft arts to craft cocktails can be found within a short stroll or drive of your luxury waterfront condominium. Just a few blocks south, the iconic Marina Jack at Bayfront Park is a great option for casual dockside cocktails and dining.

Moments away, in the walkable downtown shopping district along Palm Avenue and Main Street, you'll discover upscale shops, designer boutiques, fine art galleries, and an ever-expanding array of dining options – from Continental to cutting edge.

Saturday mornings, downtown's popular Sarasota Farmers Market provides a festive ambiance for those in search of artisan foods, locally grown produce, one-of-a-kind arts, crafts and more. A short drive over the John Ringling Causeway to Lido Key, the legendary St. Armands Circle offers another notable destination for shopping, dining and nightlife.
