JR’s Old Packinghouse Café

It’s been a little over eight months since a fire destroyed Sarasota’s iconic JR’s Old Packinghouse Café and the warehouses behind it. Walk in today, and it’s as if nothing ever happened. JR (JR Garraus) along with the hard work of his crew, customers and community has recreated this eclectic, down home bar and restaurant to look almost exactly as it has since the 90s when it first opened.
