On a boring late Sunday afternoon, the Mister and I decided to check out the Avenue in downtown St. Petersburg. Both of us were craving a good burger and recent reviews sounded promising for this new addition to the downtown scene.
Yes, parking is an issue for the First Avenue South destination. There should be a website declaration on where you can park, just a suggestion.
It was a lovely cool evening and the double doors were wide open showing the patrons at the bar and tables, enjoying their football on many large screen T.V's. The decor is inviting and the disparate lighting fixtures were attractive. There is a fireplace on one end of the room and a wall of shelves filled with flotsam and jetsam. It was a jamming scene.
The Mister ordered the Rueben burger, layered with sauerkraut and swiss cheese. He declared it yummy. He said the cole slaw was "allright". He has a particular fondness for coleslaw and is quite picky. An "allright" from him is praise, believe me.
Our late dining daughter finally arrived, hungry and tired. She was served quickly the ordered 'shroom and onion burger with swiss. Again, cooked just past the medium she requested, but still hot, tasty, juicy and well made.
