Over the years, we have learned where to go in St. Petersburg and the Beaches for a good meal. But no place offers a nicer surprise than the Z Grille downtown on 2nd Street.
When biking, we sometimes stop there for lunch, usually including a tray of deviled eggs. We can eat outside and keep an eye on the bikes.
The menu is so unusual that one is tempted to list all the neat things, but you can see for yourself on the Z Grille web site. Personally, my favourite is the wild and wacky Cornflake Sage Fried Chicken which is truly inventive. If you want to be prosaic, you can order the one pound Rib-Eye.
We think the wine prices are a little expensive, so we try to get our wine ordered during the 4:00 to 6:30 period when prices are reduced by half.
The ambience is modern, and noise level high. Not perfect for a romantic evening, but definitely fun with friends.
Reservations are recommended.
