Off the Hook Seafood Co., 6630 Gateway Ave, Sarasota, 941-923-5570.  Tucked away in a small strip mall, this unassuming restaurant will definitely surprise you once you open the door.  This is the party that nobody told you about!  This restaurant is popular, so make reservations.  Where to start??  This is one of my favorite restaurants and tops the list for special occasions.  Try the cashew crusted snapper with soba noodles, it is one of my favorites. Leave room for one of their homemade desserts.  They have a great wine list too.
