The Golden Palate: Lila: Downtown Sarasota’s Fresh, Locally Sourced Favorite With Excellent Vegetarian & Vegan Options in Sarasota, FL!


Lila Sarasota (pronounced lee-lah) means creative play. Lila is a spontaneous, playful, organic, healthy, mostly vegetable/vegan-friendly restaurant which also serves sustainable meats from local farms.
Ryan Boeve and Arthur Lopes are the chef proprietors behind the delectable Pomona Bistro in Citrus Square and wanted to bring their philosophy of locally sourced food into a different venue. That has been accomplished in the heart of downtown Sarasota, on Main Street! Enjoy fresh, casual dining, craft cocktails, thoughtful, approachable global wine list, with a rustic vibe.

Zucchini Noodles

Excellent white from France, reminds of Viognier at the start and Sauvignon Blanc at the finish! Drinkably priced at $10.00 by the glass.

Lila features locally produced Sarafresh cold pressed juices made in Sarasota!


Lila has been awarded the Fred Bollaci Enterprises Golden Palate Certificate of Excellence! Also be sure to check out sister restaurant, Pomona Bistro in Sarasota’s Rosemary District!
