SARASOTA COUNTY - AND THEN THERE WERE 3. JUST 3.

Villa Italian Kitchen has officially left Westfield Sarasota Square MALL LEAVING THE MALL with just 3 restaurants in its food court. The restaurant's sign is gone, and soda machine caps and a hastily covered menu board are the only signs that anything had ever been there.

Panda Express and Hibachi–San left in January, and now that Villa is gone, just Perry's BBQ, Charleys Philly Steaks and Chick–fil–A remain in the food court. Sit–down restaurant Prime Serious Steak left at the end of March, which means that Barefoot Bar and Grill is the only sit–down eatery at the mall.

One new addition, though not an eatery, is an art gallery, New Wave, which is across from Victoria's Secret.
