“You keep adding these dollar amounts, and it’s going to start pricing people out of these things.” Jon Mast, CEO of Manatee-Sarasota Building Industry Association, on potential impact fee increases in Sarasota County


Sarasota restaurateur Mark Caragiulo, who co-owns The Shore Diner, Owen’s Fish Camp and Caragiulos Italian Restaurant, plans to open a raw bar and seafood restaurant at the site of the former Sam Snead’s American Grill.

Here’s what readers had to say about the plan on our Facebook page.

"A tad lower prices so the avg neighborhood owner can afford to go there is needed. If they price it the same as the Palm Ave location it won't work. Geckos and the new Brick Oven place will kill them." Michael P. Goeller

"It's gonna be a winner! Mark knows what he's doing and Southside Village is lucky to have him." Tom Dowdy

"As long as they have some yummy vegan options!!!" Victoria Andrich

"More raw bars!!!!!! The more the better!" Carolyn Davis Cockey
