RE-FREDERICO ....CLOSED ON LONGBOAT KEY
I have to admit, I never "Got" this place, even though the proprietors were very accomodating and willing to make any dish you desired. Well,we will see who the next person is who wants to lose money, on this less than desirable location.
I thought it was awful. I saw a few weeks ago that the two owners had taken space for a restaurant in downtown Sarasota and it was implied in the article that it was to build on the success of Re Frederico, to give their existing satisfied customers another great choice. I remember that when I read the article I was shocked, couldn't figure out who these customers were since Re Frederico was mostly empty.
I suppose the loan was called, the owners knew nothing of the local restaurant customs and operations, When a woman I was with asked for a glass of ice on the side....It showed up on the bill; i suggested to the owner (one of) that was not usual his answer was "In Italia we always charge for ice......oh well......
