Description

Metro Diner, a burgeoning chain born in Jacksonville in 1992, opened its first Sarasota location in July 2017 in a revamped space inside the Westfield Siesta Key mall. A diner it is, with a row of stools installed right in front of the open kitchen, a boisterous-and-bustling vibe and paper placemats emblazoned with ads for local businesses and nonprofits. The Guy Fieri-approved menu reinforces the theme, with a variety of Benedicts and omelets and other egg-based favorites, plus lunch and dinner options like burgers, shrimp and grits and chicken pot pie. Don't miss the fried chicken, brined for more than 24 hours and drizzled with a combination of maple syrup and Louisiana hot sauce.
