This restaurant is permanently closed. Permanently Closed - The restaurant, like its owners Zack and Jenny, is anything but typical. The vivid aesthetic and unmistakable vibe provide a perfect mash-up of Southern California chic and homespun Downtown St. Pete flair in one remarkable place.

The food is the true hero: house specialties like the Dr Pepper Fried Ribs and famous Deviled Eggs are ‘Chef Z’ originals that simply can’t be duplicated by anyone, anywhere. It’s been that way since 2005 and it’s a badge of honor worn proudly.

The wine list features dozens of selections in both the red and white categories (above and under $40 by the bottle) and between $8 and $12 by the glass. Similarly, the craft-beers, specialty cocktails and premium spirits invite repeated sampling.

NOT closed! Don't believe Open Table. They stopped using the Open Table service but they are very much still in business.

Wonderful meal...!

Awesome food and service. Very creative menu. Cocktails were excellent too. One of our favorite places in St Pete.

The food here is unbelievable. We as a family could not get enough of the flavors. My wife and I had the ribs and a salad and our kids had the ribs and the shrimp tacos. Like I said the flavors are out of this world, and hat off to the chefs, but we all left hungry due to the portions sizes.

What a great spot--and wonderful food. I've had the Dr Pepper Ribs on my mind since we ate them!!

Our server, Clara, was the BEST! What a sweet young lady and really tried to help us with whatever we needed. I think I may have shorted her on her tip though - not intentionally - only because I'm blonde and math and I don't get along at all! The wine was good, my steak was awesome. The ONLY complaint I have is that my 15-year old ordered the scallops and he only got 4! Needless to say, he was still hungry (he ate off of all of our plates! LOL!!!). But, he said the scallops were good - just not enough of them. I would definitely go back for sure!

Fabulous food creatively presented and prepared, from delicious variations on deviled eggs to various vegetarian and carnivore-friendly small plates to main entrees. Ingredients are clearly fresh, locally sourced and respected, so they come through in all the dishes we tried. Half-off wines on Mondays and a very enticing happy hour ($5 glasses of wine) make this downtown St. Pete destination a repeat and "must try". Service, by the way, was as fantastic as the food.

So much better than you imagine. Small menu throws you off but rest assured everything is delicious. Went with a party of five and each dish was aweesome. The atmosphere was trend and comfortable with an interesting back-story. The service was fantastic from hostess to server. It's a must try if in the area.
