Best Place for Dinner

We are looking for a great place to eat dinner before we head out on the town for a night of Bachelorette fun. Any suggestions? We would like some where that is fun and not a "stuffy" environment.

Not sure exactly where you're staying, but we always enjoy Bongo's Beachside Grille. We love it because you get to eat with your feet in the sand! It's best at sunset but fun into the night too. Good food and great drinks! Very casual.

Thanks!! We are staying at the Sirata. Most of us will be dressed for a night on the town (aka little black dresses and some heels), do you think Bongo's would be too casual for us?

Hmmm... Maybe. But then again, there are a lot of weddings on the beach in front of Bongo's, so there are always nicely dressed people as well. I don't think you'll look out of place though.

Love Bongo's, but it is, essentially, a beach bar. You may very well be seated next to someone in a bikini. And heels are almost impossible in the sand!

Take a look at Jackie's Bistro on Corey. They have very good food, a hip vibe, and sidewalk seating for people-watching.

How about Black Palm over on Parks St in South Pasadena. More the black dress and heels kinda place. I assume if you are getting dressed for a night on the town, you will be heading to St Petersburg or somewhere not on the beach.

Spinners, the revolving restaurant on top of the Grand Plaza Hotel, (next to the Sirata), 1200 Chop House, Snappers, I haven't been to Black Palm new location, but loved it when it was located in Passe A Grille. Are you going to be going "out on the town" in St. Petersburg? If you are, 400 Beach Seafood, The Acropolis, (you can sit inside or outside on the sidewalk or outside on an upstairs balcony, music, nice fun atmosphere), and Gratzzi. You will be overdressed at many other beach locations.
