I am proud to say that my former client (we sold his St. Petersburg home recently) Ed Allen, is bringing a fresh new restaurant concept to 600 block and Central Avenue in Downtown St. Petersburg.
Current manager at Latin restaurant Bodega, Allen has been toying with the idea of a gourmet grilled cheese eatery for several years, but the timing was never right. Finally that time has come… coming soon to 685 Central Ave., Ed Allen’s new Central Melt restaurant! The menu and exact opening date are to be determined but Allen says expect bacon – people love their bacon – plus soups and a “killer salad” coming sometime around the end of Summer 2015. The establishment will also feature wine and St. Pete-brewed beer. Gotta keep it local! Can’t wait until opening day – nothing better than a good grilled cheese and tomato soup!
