LIDO KEY (SNN) - Sarasota's Lido Beach Restaurant is closing for pavilion renovations.

The concession stand on Lido Key will be closed for months, with bids being evaluated for a continuing food and beverage vendor. The stand is known for its lobster rolls and other casual dining fare, will close after business Saturday, with its contract with the city of Sarasota expiring on Monday, September 30.

Repairs to the pavilion will include installing a new vent hood in the kitchen and adding a new aluminum roof. Renovations are expected to be done by December, when the concession stand will reopen.
