Island Seafood Market and Bistro - St Petersburg, FL
There are so many reasons that I love the Grand Central District in St Petersburg, and the Island Seafood Market and Bistro just gave me one more reason to go over to the Grand Central District. Driving by them on Central Avenue, their yellow storefront draws one into a cozy bistro inside. Inside, you can order fresh seafood from the market to take home and cook yourself, or grab one of the tables and order something from the menu.
On our visit for lunch there, we started off with a couple of beers and the Island Quesadilla. The quesadilla was wonderful with its cheddar cheese and seafood spread filling. The quesadilla comes with a nice dipping sauce. After that, we had the Blackened Red Snapper sandwich, fish tacos, and grilled shrimp served over jasmine rice. Each entree comes with a bag of potato chips. We were all very happy with our choices and were impressed with how fresh the seafood tasted. When I am in the need for good seafood close to downtown, this is definitely the place for me.
