wrcs_overview_long_v1.jpgDesigned by San Francisco-based EDG Interior Architecture & Design, the 236 seat indoor-outdoor restaurant/lounge/market draws inspiration from Sarasota’s dynamic artistic community, while reflecting the region’s coastal sensibility.

 

Upon entering, guests are drawn into the relaxed lounge by the dynamic and fluid sculptural ceiling installation featuring 1,800 hand-crafted brass mesh petals custom-designed by Yellow Coat Design in Australia. Expansive floor-to-ceiling windows stretch across the space, providing sweeping vistas of the bay and barrier islands from every vantage point.

Jack Dusty is an indoor-outdoor space featuring various seating styles that promote a comfortable and relaxed vibe. Guests can linger over cocktails and bites in the lounge or bar accented by wood-paneled millwork, comfy leather seating, a rustic stone raw bar and warm and inviting wine library. Oak floors and board and batten-styled custom millworkcreate a warm and inviting backdrop for the sculptural bar and pantry where hand-tossed cocktails and seafood specialties are featured. A private dining room features a 25-foot hand sculpted plaster wall created by Toronto-based Moss & Lam, patterned after shifting sands.
