Cassis American Brasserie brings to downtown St. Petersburg a concept of “Continental Comfort Cuisine” in the tradition of European Brasseries, yet with the relaxed flair of American eateries and a feeling of “always been there”. <br /><br />Zinc top bar, dark mahogany wood, oversized framed mirrors, hand-painted three tone cement floor tiles, chocolate brown leather banquettes and booths; Cassis offers casual eating in a comfortable environment.<br /><br />The dining room opens onto an outdoor terrace displaying a bistro area in the tradition of Parisian style cafes and a dining section in the South Beach style with colorful offset umbrellas.<br /><br />Open seven days a week for lunch, and dinner, week-end brunch and throughout the day for light fares, coffee, home-made ice cream and desserts, Cassis American Brasserie is an ideal destination for quick bites or leisurely meals.

"We have always had a good experience at Cassis but Friday night was an exception. We were shown to an outside table that turned out to be No Man's Land. No wait person was assigned to serve it. This we found out after waiting 20 min. and trying to attract the attention of a server. We had to go back inside the restaurant to find out what was happening. Then When we tried to use our gift card, the balance was shown to be 0 instead of approximately $50. The server did not know to ask the manager who is the only one to process gift cards, we later learned. This also occasioned my husband to have to leave his seat at the table and seek the manager. We will go back but hope we have the same level of service we have enjoyed before. If not, we will cross Cassis off our list."

Immerse yourself in the most delectable dining experience Tampa Bay has to offer at The Maritana Grille. At this signature restaurant of the beautiful Don CeSar resort, you’re surrounded by 1,500 gallons of salt water aquariums filled with colorful, native Florida fish. You’ll dine on the freshest local seafood prepared with pure, organic ingredients in a New American style. With an extensive wine list and world-class service, it’s no wonder The Maritana Grille was voted one of the Top 10 seafood restaurants in the United States by the Gayot Guide, and has received AAA’s 4-Diamond Rating for the past 15 years. The vibe is casual-chic, no jackets required. The atmosphere is festive yet intimate and the food is incomparably delicious. The Maritana Grille turns every meal into a magical dining experience. <br /><br />

SeaSalt is inspired by its location near the water and is dedicated to seafood and its accompaniments. Chef Fabrizio Aielli brings to his cuisine an infusion of the simplicity of Venetian home cooking, learned at his mother’s knee, along with the upscale and innovative techniques he has garnered during his years of practice in fine restaurants in Italy, the Caribbean and Washington, DC. He explores time-honored methods and melds them with the new, bringing a handcrafted and honest restoration of traditional dishes. As far as possible, ingredients are sourced from local producers and markets and the disherfolk. Chef Fabrizio Aielli is inspired by the mainstays of the seafood repertoire, using organic and local produce, wild caught seafood, poultry and meat raised naturally without hormones, antibiotics or animal by-products whenever possible, emphasizing fresh and seasonal ingredients.

Serving up irresistible Dim Sum, innovative cocktails, and luxurious Chinese teas, Ping Pong Dupont is a vibrant location to enjoy Dim Sum with a twist. The cosmopolitan restaurant boasts 2 al fresco 3-season patios, a dim sum bar, expansive dining room great for large groups, and a buzzing cocktail bar with award-winning libations. <br /><br />Offering a wide range of Asian treats, the sleek Ping Pong restaurants pay homage to the ancient traditions of Chinese tea houses. With a big choice of dumplings and steamed buns, the Ping Pong menu also offers an array of "big-small plates", all Chinese tapas style. <br /><br />As well, there are plenty of familiar Chinese delicacies, with spring rolls, soup dumplings, and hearty dishes like our hoi sin duck bao sliders. For dessert, try Ping Pong’s roasted banana and chocolate spring roll or the ice cream filled rice pastry, mochi, and finish with a lively Ping Pong cocktail or soothing Oriental tea.

"Ping Pong's food is absolutely delicious and service is friendly and efficient. My only complaint is the lack of chairs with backs. I would come here more often if there were chairs with backs. As it is we always have to request a table against the wall so we can lean back. But the bench lacks padding so is not comfortable either."
