Flavors of Tampa Bay: Nola Cafe in St. Pete

Flavors of Tampa Bay: Nola Cafe in St. Pete

St. Petersburg, Florida - Red Beans and Rice, Chicory Coffee and Shrimp Po Boys are just a few of the items that you might enjoy at the Nola Cafe and News Stand.

The original in Tampa is still around, but the Big Easy flavors have now come over the bay to downtown St. Petersburg. Owner Rumen Gavrilov fell in love with New Orleans style cooking a long time ago, so when he saw an opportunity to open up a new location serving up some bayou favorites, he couldn't pass it up.

Located on Beach Drive, the Nola Cafe is tucked in around some other establishments, but the time it will take to find them is well worth it.

Tarpon culinary treasure re-opens under new management

Tarpon culinary treasure re-opens under new management

Tarpon Springs, FL - If you remember the beloved Greek eatery Pappas Riverside welcoming guests at the entrance to the Tarpon Springs' sponge docks for 80 years, until it was sold in 2005, you'll be happy to hear the previously empty building is back up and running, open for lunch and dinner. The new Riverside Grille House is taking over the desirable waterfront location and high standards inherited from Louis Pappas himself.

Some of the Greek food and hard-working staff has carried over from the previous brand, but expect a unique new personality at the restaurant, which opened its doors on Nov. 19. While finding a happy compromise between a rich legacy and an exciting future, the new owners, Michael Lowe and Victor Holcomb, are excited to hear feedback from the Tarpon Springs community about the million dollar renovation and new menu.
