Good Food in Sarasota
The last four years or so I have a keen interest in food, in tasting food and in vegetarian/vegan food. Today I realized it was Nancy Ebersol Good that introduced me to good, tasty food and Janet Oberholter to vegetarian food that tastes good and is also nourishing.
With Nancy here all summer I have been eating out quite a bit, simply for the sake of tasting food, of feeling the atmosphere, getting to personally know the owners.

Today was my second time at Goodfellas Cafe & Winery on Clark Road. I think about two weeks ago I was in here with my brother Eli and his wife Bonnie. That time we talked wine and fine Italian Food with the owner and I promised to bring him a sampling of my wine, especially the Amish Red Beet wine. Today was that day. We traded wine. Tonight after hours, he is dining on my wine.
Nancy and I ordered food like we normally do, each one of chooses what we want and then we share and take the left-overs home for later. Nancy chose a personal pizza and a pasta dish.
I chose a Roast Beef sandwich,
Which I soaked in gravy with lots of garlic and other Italian seasonings.
This photo from Nancy's camera pretty well shows the whole spread.
We also stopped at the Buttermilk Handcrafted Foods to get some dessert we split up at home.
