Located in Paul Rudolph’s 1959 Vocational Shops building, beautifully reimagined by K/R Architects.
The Bistro fare is inspired by Florida’s regional fruit stands and farmer’s markets and emphasizes local produce, healthy proteins, and artisanal specialty items brought to you by Executive Chef Kaytlin Dangaran and the Constellation Culinary team. The Bistro design is inspired by Rudolph, the history of the Sarasota High School and the 1920s provenance of the Elliott building and serves as platform to extend the curatorial vision of the Museum into your dining experience

Bistro at Sarasota Art Museum of Ringling College
Chef Kaytlin Dangaran brings a fresh approach to Bistro at Sarasota Art Museum of Ringling College, where she draws inspiration from her diverse culinary experience and background. Having led restaurants within cultural institutions, she has elevated the museum experience with seasonal and art-inspired menus.
Learning to cook in her mother’s kitchen, Chef Dangaran, a Tampa native, recognized at a young age the importance of food and shared meals with her family and her community. As a universal language, she communicates through her culinary creations bringing people from all backgrounds together for a shared experience.
Trained at the French Culinary Institute in Manhattan, Chef Dangaran gained invaluable experience in the kitchen of Gabe Thompson’s bustling West Village Italian restaurant dell’anima. Shortly after completing culinary school, she joined the opening team of Thompson’s L’Artusi as Sous Chef. Eager to expand her culinary knowledge and skills, Dangaran moved to San Francisco where she worked at the famed Quince and Cotogna.
