Chef Nils Tarantik


"I am excited to introduce Element as the newest addition to the Sarasota restaurant scene. We have worked hard to create a unique experience that encompasses all of the elements of a truly memorable meal. Every dish on the menu has a story and I really wanted to represent how food, like life, is made up of so many individual ingredients. I want to represent how those ingredients are transformed into the food we love and the memories we cherish. Our riffs on classic Mediterranean favorites along with our immersive atmosphere, and superb wine and craft cocktail offerings are meant to seduce the senses and entice the palate of all of our guests." - Chef Nils

about Element

Element is an upscale, modern Mediterranean grill located in the heart of downtown Sarasota, Fl. Inspired by his childhood in Europe and his passion for culinary innovation, Chef Nils Tarantik has brought a special, one-of-a-kind dining experience to downtown.

Chef Nils takes the classic dishes and flavors of southern Europe and imbues them with unique gastronomic twists and flares. The result is a timeless - yet boldly modern – dining experience that evokes the comforting flavor memories of the past while exciting the senses. The atmosphere echoes this synthesis with a welcoming environment accented by theatrical touches and a knowledgeable staff committed to exceeding your expectations.  

Element offers an extensive wine list and a craft cocktail bar as well as a private dining room.


After several nights of discussing past travels, meals enjoyed, and friends remembered, business visionaries James & Sean Abrams along with Award Winning Chef, Nils Tarantik, concluded our beautiful city needed an establishment that could hold its own with any of those destinations.  A few of the “must haves” for this undertaking included a warm, plush and sophisticated setting, an award-winning wine & beverage program, a menu filled with globally influenced dishes, prepared with fresh, local/regional ingredients and a team of inspired hospitality professionals to bring it all together.

Following months of planning, construction and long dedicated nights, they arrived at the conclusion this restaurant would be a gift for the people who live, work and travel to Sarasota.  It is with a sincere love for our enchanting city, our passion to serve and the ongoing pursuit of perfection, we welcome you to element, modern mediterranean grill™; Sarasota’s premier fine dining and destination restaurant.
