One of St. Pete’s longest standing restaurants, Ceviche Tapas & Bar, will soon debut at the former The Moon Under Water’s location on Beach Drive. Boyd Construction has finished most of its exterior renovations and is now bringing the inside of the restaurant to life.

“The new Ceviche will debut an entirely remodeled interior and exterior design, the patio will take advantage of the wonderful location with beautiful views of Straub Park and the bay.”

In addition to physical changes to its facade, they are building a new wine room with a menu that will offer a more extensive wine list focusing on Spanish wines.

Longtime chef at The Moon Under Water, Mike Crippin, has opened a new spot in the Grand Central District called The Studio Public House.

The restaurant has been a go to for Spanish tapas that included some of our favorites like their wildly popular patatas bravas, gambas and paellas. Of course, a meal without a pitcher of their traditional sangrias would be incomplete. Personally, we love their Sangria Primera which is made extra special with brandy and orange liqueur!

Another St. Pete tradition which we hope to continue when they move is their Tuesday Tapas! Definitely the best time to try most of the items on their tapas menu and get the best deal.

Once open, you can visit it at 332 Beach Drive in downtown St. Pete. Stay tuned for their exact opening date.
