It’s almost that time. Yes, the time of year when Manatee County roads and restaurants fill with seasonal residents.

Residents and restaurateurs know the time all too well. For that reason, many chefs and restaurant owners use September as a month to escape for a few weeks before the craziness begins.

Via Seafood Shack, here’s a list of restaurants and their vacation dates:

▪ Ortygia, closed Sept. 28-Oct. 6

▪ Blue Marlin Grill, closed Sept. 21-28
