Those who enjoy a treat at the Siesta Beach pavilion will now see a new menu from a new operator.
The Venice Pier Group, which operates Sharky’s on the Pier, Fins at Sharky’s, and Snook Haven Restaurant, will now run the concessions at the public beach.
The Sun Deck and Sand Pavilion food businesses, as well as the retail shop, began to be managed by the Venice Pier Group on Aug. 1. The concessions were temporarily closed during the transition, with new hires taking place between Aug. 3 and 7.
At the Sun Deck, expanded beverage offerings is part of the new plan, including frozen drinks and craft beer, as is a chef-inspired menu that includes fresh fish, grilled shrimp, and blackened chicken tacos.
Made-to-order items will be sold at the Sand Pavilion.
Venice Pier Group is winner of the 2020 Venice Chamber of Commerce business of the year in the hospitality and tourism category.
