Element has become the premier fine dining and destination restaurant in the beautiful city of Sarasota, Florida.  Our setting is approachable, plush, luxurious, welcoming and consists of a beautiful 20’ white marble bar, 24 person private dining room, state of the art technology and a stunning climate controlled-walk in wine cave which can accommodate 1250 bottles.  We have two sommeliers on staff, which allows us to host weekly educational tastings, and monthly wine dinners. 

Our stemware is Riedel, varietal specific and washed in separate UHT (ultra high temperature) machines.  The art of classic decanting is taught and practiced, as well as alternative bottle opening methods (osso).
