The space marries the intimacy of the indoors with the fresh air outside.
Tampa may have the original Columbia (Florida’s oldest restaurant, opened in 1905) but Sarasota has the prettiest. Enjoy dining while surrounded by the circle’s paradise of lush tropical landscaping that creates an international atmosphere of friendly warmth, enduring elegance, and timeless style.
