Bargain Gourmet at Chutney’s Etc.

8 Jul

Chutney’s Etc. is a terrific little eatery on Hillview in Sarasota. If you are seeking a gourmet taste of Greek, Middle Eastern, or Indian cuisine, this is your place. Lunch entrees are quite affordable at just $7.95 — and that includes basmati rice, a greek salad, and some deliciously warm pita bread. Todd Morton of the nearby Morton’s Market first steered me to Chutney’s, which is run by a friendly husband and wife team. The restaurant has thrived for over two decades in a time when restaurants come and go with breathtaking speed. The reason for their longevity is simple: good food and good value.

Today I ordered the always-tasty peanut chicken. It consists of chunks of tender white meat bathed in a rich peanut/coconut sauce with just a hint of fresh cilantro and red chile pepper. Awesome — would strongly recommend you try it if you like the sweet/spicy combo. You can peruse the lunch and dinner menues and take a virtual tour of the cozy little dining space at
