New Seafood Concept Coming to Central Ave

With such close proximity to the Gulf, the Burg is no stranger to great seafood as St. Pete’s beaches provide a plethora of phenomenal restaurants to satiate fishy cravings. However, downtown St. Pete seemingly lacks that same abundance of laid-back, come all/serve all seafood restaurants. The partners behind The Manderin Hide are hoping to fill that void with their newest concept called Trophy Fish.

Trophy Fish aims to bring fresh-from-the-Gulf seafood to downtown St. Pete. The restaurant will support local fishing industry as it utilizes local seafood. Partner Ryan Griffin who is also involved with Souzou and Rock Bros Brewing states, “We are very passionate about helping our community and Tampa Bay grow.”

The restaurant is scheduled to open early 2018 at 2060 Central Ave.

We will continue to update this article as more information comes out.

Keep up with Trophy Fish
