SARASOTA - In this week's edition of Feel Good Friday, SNN's Grant Boxleitner is spending time at the new downtown Sarasota restaurant, Bavaro's Napoletana and Pastaria on Fletcher Avenue. 

The establishment is among the new participants for Savor Sarasota 2019. The two-week event features more than 100 restaurants through Sarasota County, including both locally owned and chain businesses. Patrons can choose from a special menu of $16 for lunch or $32 for dinner.

Some restaurants give other add-ins with the deal. Bavaro's, for instance, includes a glass of beer or wine. 

Britney Guertin, the communication and content manager for Visit Sarasota, talks about the restaurants and the program. She says many of the restaurants offer the Savor Sarasota menu for longer than the final day, scheduled for June 14.
