Tableseide Restaurant Group plans departure from Ringling Museum in June

Tableseide Restaurant Group announces it's departure as the vendor for food service at The Ringling Museum effective June 30th.

Tableseide Restaurant Group announces their departure as the food service vendor for The Ringling Museum property, including Muse at The Ringling, Banyan Cafe, and the Coffee Shop on June 30, 2020. Tableseide entered into a 5 year contract with FSU in July, 2015 as sole operator of all food service venues on the grounds of the Ringling. During the five years Tableseide transitioned the popular Treviso to Muse at The Ringling located in The Ringling Visitor Center, refreshing the brand with a new name, a modern look, and an artistic outtake on a menu. 

"The past five years have been a wonderful experience, I am proud of the local touch and innovation that we brought to a landmark of Sarasota. We were honored to be a part of such a wonderful history and look forward to passing the touch to the new vendor" says Joe Guli, CEO of Tableseide Restaurant Group. Once the five year contract came up for renewal Tableseide understood that their core brands, Libby's, Lemon Tree, Circo, and Tableseide Catering are the true heart of their company and decided to not rebid their contract with Florida State University. "We are excited to shift our focus to our core brands, our company continues to grow and we are excited for the extra resources to focus toward our brands that are the heart of our company." stated Joe Guli. 

Tableseide will work closely with the new vendor to make the transition smooth. Employees will be offered jobs at other Tableseide locations if they choose. Tableseide Catering will still be an approved vendor for catering special events at The Ringling. Contact our Events department for inquiries at
