We’ll definitely be back! Our server (Paul) was terrific and thoroughly enjoyed the presentation and flavors of the beet salad, the beef tartare and the lobster salad. Wonderful wine selection…

About the restaurant
Featured in Food & Wine Magazine, The Wine Enthusiast, and Tampa Bay Times, In Between Days is Florida's first craft sake house and Tokyo-style listening bar. Our sake list is one of the most diverse on the East Coast and is curated by our in-house sake sommelier Noah Sain. Inspired by the underground listening bars of Tokyo, our little house is warmed by intimate lighting and analog sounds sent through a pair of Klipsch Cornwalls. Oil lanterns cascade amber light while sake is poured into eager glasses. We play full sides. Our sake is chilled. Our oysters are served in the classic French style. It’s not Tokyo, but it’s close.

With an ever-rotating menu of sake, sake cocktails, and tasty plates, In Between Days offers a truly unique experience in the Tampa Bay area. Just off the hustle of Central Ave.

About the restaurant
We are Allelo.

Our name comes from the word allelomimesis which is the phenomenon of a group, such as birds, coming together to form a flock.The idea of gathering is echoed throughout our menu where items are meant for sharing with friends.

Our dining room here at Allelo is very intimate with the majority of our tables being smaller than five guests. Please note that if your party is larger than 6 people, you will most likely be outside.
All outside tables have heaters and blankets available, but please dress warmly as nighttime temperatures can change suddenly.

$25 corkage per 750ml. We have a three bottle limit per table. We do have an extensive wine list with over 500 bottles of wine to choose from. Also, our in-house sommelier would love to make a recommendation for your table.

St. Petersburg
About the restaurant
BellaBrava New World Trattoria was born in 2005 in Downtown Saint Petersburg. Over the years since, BellaBrava has been voted Best Restaurant in Saint Petersburg, Best Italian, and is a perennial Guest favorite on Beach Drive.

Less formal than a ristorante, our service is casual, our prices remain reasonable and our emphasis is on a steady clientele rather than haute cuisine. Old World flavors mingle with New World flair. From seafood to traditional pasta, pizzas, and more, we are positive everyone will find something delicious to savor.

BellaBrava’s unique Woodstone™ ovens cook delicious pizzas and a guest favorite, the Crostata.

Our ingredients are fresh, often locally sourced, and evoke the flavors of Tuscany and other delicious cuisines from Italy. With friendly, competent staff, BellaBrava aims to be your casual dining spot.

About the restaurant
If you live in South St. Pete, you know there are few good restaurants nearby. We’re ready to change that.

Whether you want to treat yourself after a long day or unwind in our backyard tiki bar, Mullet’s is about to be your new favorite spot for flavorful seafood fare and sharing a beer amongst friends (or strangers).

Bring your family, your friends, and your mullet.

Currently we cannot guarantee a specific seating section (indoor or outdoor) nor a specific table preference. All bar seats are held nightly for walk-in diners and all other seating is available to reserve. If you are running late, we hold the table for a grace period of 15 minutes before offering the reservation to our waitlist. Reservations are recommended, but we gladly accept walk-ins. For all reservations of 10 or more, please notify the restaurant.

Guests have a maximum of a 2 hour table time in order for us to accommodate all of our reservations.
