I know what I said.
Then, in my inbox, came word of Culinaria restaurant weeks. Spoiler alert: This post contains calories.
Sept. 14 to 28, a handful of restaurants in the Bradenton, Anna Maria Island and Longboat Key areas are offering specially priced pre-fixe menus starting at $15 for lunch and $25 for dinner. The epicurean event is presented in partnership with the Southern Living Test Kitchen, and the magazine has offered up a collection dessert recipes just for the event. Look for the sweet treats on participating Culinaria menus and in the sinfully sweet Facebook album I’ve just created.
Also, as you eat your way through town, you can have your official Culinaria “passport” stamped at each stop. Once you’ve collected 12 stamps, you’ll be eligible to win trip to that foodie paradise, Manhattan.
Find all the at bradentongulfislands.com/culinaria.
