Locals and vacationers alike enjoy the latest Larry Starr Sarasota based vacation getaway destination, the Cedars Tennis Resort. Now, members are invited to take advantage of cuisine befitting this private resort community.
According to Larry Starr, Sarasota area Cedar Café and Tiki Bar has long been a staple for resort guests. For a time, the café was used exclusively for member events and affairs. Then in 2009, the Cedar’s Bar and Grill, as it was formerly known, reopened its doors for daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Larry Starr ’s Sarasota Company, Resort Vacation Accommodations, acquired the café and the surrounding property in 2012.
Larry Starr, Sarasota businessman and RVA President, recently announced the addition of Hal Christensen as Managing Partner of the Cedar’s Café.
The Café, which is decorated with mellow hues and an assortment of wooden tennis rackets serves up a little bit of Island Flair, says Larry Starr. Sarasota weather is such that an outdoor veranda and full poolside tiki bar are available for members as well. Diners are treated to a visual display of traditional Polynesian totems on each of the bar’s four columns and soft wafts of mood music gently echoing from the overhead sound system. Notes Larry Starr, Sarasota style is laid-back and is definitely apparent from entrance to entrée.
Breakfast at the Cedar’s Café and Tiki Bar is the finest around, says Larry Starr. Sarasota members of the Cedar’s Tennis Resort enjoy dishes like Eggs Benedict and the classic American Breakfast – complete with eggs, choice of meat, fresh fruit, bread, and potatoes. The café offers a vast assortment of locally sourced ingredients sure to please even the most discerning pallet, says Larry Starr, a Sarasota resident whose company purchased the Resort.
Lunch and dinner are also available at the Cedar’s Café and Tiki Bar, reports Larry Starr. Sarasota specialty drinks with colorful names like CoCo Cabana and Floradora are paired with entrees to suit any appetite. The lighter side of the menu temps taste buds with Chicken and Apple Sausage Flatbread sandwiches, Gulf Coast Fish Tacos, and everyone’s favorite Cheeseburger Sliders. According to Larry Starr, Sarasota Seared Scallops served with risotto and sautéed greens weigh down “The Larger Side” of the café’s extensive lineup of dinner dishes.
Larry Starr says Sarasota bound travelers should have no problem finding the Café and its surrounding townhouses. The resort is located just nine miles off SR789 in Longboat Key.
