Beauty of Sprouts is a new restaurant in Sarasota with a menu that is vegan, organic and mostly raw.  The menu is still evolving rapidly, so now is a great time to visit and give your opinions to Rano, the wonderful owner.  She's very flexible as long as you don't mind giving her time to prepare your food. The food is entirely made from scratch and you will find a variety of vegan and raw appetizers and entries as well as a few cooked specials with options available for gluten-free and other allergies as well. The owner is very careful of where the food comes from and avoids even "organic" foods from China. As of March 2014, hours were Mon to Sat from 10am-8pm!

As of March 2014, the menu is entirely vegan. Let's help her stay that way with enough business to lead the way.  It is very close to Ionies, but the menus are quite different. The place is very simple with room for about 16 people at a time. She hopes to decorate more soon. As with any raw place, if you are in a hurry please call ahead. As for the sampler plate and try something new.  We're glad we did and will be back.

Awesome Vegan Food

The Beauty of Sprouts is your best option for raw, vegan food in the Sarasota area, especially if you want to go for dinner. We've been there many times and hosted several VegSarasota events there as well. Rano is amazing and warm and full of love for everyone. Go prepared for wonderful food served by the chef herself. Don't miss the lavender creme brûlée for desert. We really love that she changes the menu regularly, so there is always something new to try. Best of all nearly everything is organic and made from whole foods. Treat yourself and your body to dinner at The Beauty of Sprouts today,

New Vegan, Raw and Organic

The Beauty of Sprouts had been open for less than a week when we visited, and we were really happy with everything we tasted, saw and heard from owner Rano Halikova. The chilly evening we visited had one cooked dish available, her homemade vegan borscht soup, and it was excellent! At the owner's suggestion we tried the sampler platter of appetizers and really liked all with the stuffed bell pepper and eggplant ravioli being standouts. We then skipped to dessert and tried all 4 (yes, 4) vegan desserts!!!! The raw tiramisu, lemon pie and macadamia brûlée were awesome. We suggested changing the oatmeal carrot cookie for something else. The ginger ice tea was excellent, and vegans will be happy to know that she uses only coconut palm sugar as sweetener.

She is working daily to improve her menu and so is very open to suggestions regarding oil free cooking, gluten free options and offering some cooked dishes at least at night. If you are following a plant based diet for health reasons, beware the coconut oil in many raw desserts.

We will go back and happily try the rest of Rona's menu. We're very happy in Sarasota to have this new option!
