NEW on TBOD's "Bars & Clubs" ~ Tommy Bahama Cafe

Tommy Bahama is no longer just about the clothing! The famous retailer is going foodie by opening up Tommy Bahama Cafes nationwide and we just happen to have one right here in our neighborhood! St. Armand's Circle, in Sarasota, houses this super chill bar and eatery with THE BEST MOJITO I HAVE EVER HAD IN MY LIFE!!! It's called the "pineapple yuzu" and you MUST order it if you go (and if you like mojitos!). What's super cool is that Tommy Bahama has their own brand of rums that they use in their signature drinks, a silver called "White Sand" and a gold called "Golden Sunset." Definitely give them a shot. The food is also outstanding! I didn't have dinner there, but certainly drooled over the menu. I was lucky enough to sample some of the "island time" appetizers (Tommy's happy hour) and was blown away by the flavors, especially the goat cheese plate and the mango bbq chicken lollipops!

I could go on, but suffice it to say that the place was really cool and congrats to Tommy Bahama for a very successful new venture!

Airing now on Tampa Bay On Demand, channel 340!
