Old Northeast Tavern - St Petersburg, FL
Have you ever been driving along and you discover a neat little place to eat? This happened to me when I was in St Pete's Old Northeast neighborhood. This place looked so cute and inviting from the outside that I just had to see what I would find inside the Old Northeast Tavern. Inside was just as cute with the walls painted to resemble quaint European shops. If you are lucky, you can get a booth by the huge windows that open out onto the sidewalk. I am happy to say they have a nice selection of imports on draft as well as bottled beers. If you have read some of my earlier posts, by now you probably realize I am into imported brews, in particular German and Belgium brews. They have a nice menu and the thing I like about them is they combine flavors and ingredients in unique ways. Take for instance the Jerk Chicken and Plantain Quesadillas with raspberry coulis which is delicious beyond words. Another favorite of mine is the Tavern Steak Panini with portabella mushrooms, spinach, provolone, and a yummy chipotle aioli. If pizza is your thing, they do a great job on those, too. You can get a plain pizza, or if feeling adventurous, try the Garlic Shrimp pizza or the Cajun Chicken pizza. This is just a really comfortable place to hang out in the Old Northeast neighborhood. Also, if you stop by on a Saturday night, there just might be live music playing. This is definitely one you will want to give a try.
