I've had the fortune to find this Deli in the Gulfgate section of Sarasota. While the ambiance is plain and simple the food is exquisite and a delight to the tastebuds. I had the chicken soup without noodles or knaidlach (matzoh balls) which was rich...More

Sarasota has few Jewish style delis, including a Florida chain called TooJays. A family from Brooklyn has opened a small place in Gulfgate that offers a pretty expansive menu of sandwiches and sides. Having just sampled their chopped liver I would say that Randabi's is...More
