Jane Seymour: Life As Art: Depending on their age, fans of Jane Seymour know her best as a Bond girl a medicine woman or a Wedding Crashers cougar. But the acclaimed actress says the creative expression she enjoys the most happens in a painting studio, not a soundstage. Seymour comes to Sarasota with an art exhibition at Chasen Galleries, and spoke exclusively with SRQ magazine about her career on canvas and on screen.
La Famiglia: For an Italian restaurant to reach the upper echelons of legitimacy, it must incorporate a generous-old recipe from some quaint village unmarked on a map, or make use of “nonna” or “mama” as a prefix for some of its menu items. SRQ embarks on a giro d’italia amongst three local Italian restaurants that check all of the boxes, passing the unwritten test of authenticity with flying tricolores.
Murder On The Food Express: Fast food is dead and the police suspect foul play. Fast casual is booming in a Sarasota saturated by fine dining locales, and Millennials especially are on the hunt for the next new thing to pick up the mantle. In short, profit motive for the murder stands at an all-time high, and the market points to something chef-driven and worldly- tacos. With a recent proliferation of taco offerings on the Sarasota menu, SRQ rounds up the new usual suspects.
