St. Pete Restaurant Renaissance

The Sizzle: A Menu of New Restaurants
in St. Pete

St. Pete’s restaurant scene is enjoying a renaissance, with new, locally owned concepts popping up at a dizzying pace. They run a wide culinary gamut, from local seafood to upscale Asian fusion to farm-to-table pizza.

Most of the new eateries are clustering downtown, but 4th Street — one of the main arteries heading northward from the urban core — is filling out as well. New projects of a more bohemian sort are happening just to the west — in the Edge and Grand Central districts.

Take a pictorial tour of several new restaurants that have debuted in recent weeks and months, and a couple that are coming soon.

1 The Brass Bowl Kitchen & Juicery

Eating healthy has never tasted so good. The Brass Bowl serves a chef driven, fully organic menu featuring fresh, gluten free food bowls that burst with flavor.

4 FLATBREAD & BUTTER

This cozy neighborhood café is located in the dynamic Uptown neighborhood of St. Pete and is a little sanctuary for rest or work.

Come here for mouthwatering pizza and locally brewed coffee.
