Joined at the hip to Red Apron, Chef Anda's groundbreaking butcher and charcuterie shop, the restaurant and bar draws heavily from Anda's line of house made products and relies on the meticulous sourcing that has made Red Apron the first and only butcher shop in the nation to use 100% Animal Welfare Approved pork. Anda and Chef Ed Witt's charcuterie program at The Partisan draws from 100s of cured muscles, pates, and sausages, showcasing over 30 different products on any given night.<br /><br />The balance of the menu is broken up into a series of meat-centric composed dishes highlighting distinctive cuts, cooking techniques, and animal breeds. The portioning encourages sampling, sharing and customizing, which allows guests to construct a completely unique dining experience with each visit.

"We had a great experience and can't wait to go back. Our server, Timothy, was fantastic. He described the dishes in great detail. The only thing I would have changed about our night is our seating. We were a party of two and our table was seated next to this large group. It was difficult to have a conversation of our own sitting so close to them. The seating area is small, so maybe this isn't possible. Also, it seems the restaurant hasn't worked out the kinks as far as timing reservations. We arrived early, but we weren't seated for a good 20 minutes past our reservation time. The server gave us complementary after-dinner liqueur to make up for our wait (and possibly for our putting up with our loud neighbors)."

Selva offers innovative, intricately prepared dishes, plated and presented as works of art. Selva has earned raves from all<br />over the world, including from the New York Times, which write that Selva is “serving possibly the best food in Sarasota,”<br />and that “everything on the menu is worth trying.”

"Food was really good, especially notable was the asparagus. After our first bite, we both stopped and said "Oh my God this is so good." He had lamb and I had the watermelon/tuna appetizer and sea bass entree. It was half-price wine night, and we loved what we had.
The only thing about the service is that we were never told about the specials. This could be because we were with our baby daughter and took a few extra moments to be seated while we set her up. The server helped us get an extra bottle of wine to go (uncorked as per law) and got the check quickly when the baby got fussy and we needed to leave.
Overall we loved it here and would recommend to others."
