Art museums all over are paying attention to the quality of their restaurants, and that’s true in Sarasota, too. Muse at the John & Mable Ringling Museum of Art is a classy and comfortable place to stop for a nibble or a full meal after viewing the collection. Choose from indoor or outdoor seating that overlooks the grounds and a pretty pond, and order from a contemporary American bistro menu and full bar. Because you don’t need a museum ticket to eat at Muse, many locals meet friends there for lunch and dinner, drawn by the reliably tasty food, elegant setting and unhurried pace. It’s also a pre-theater destination for those going to see a play at Asolo Rep right across the street.
