In March, Uptown Eats announced that it was taking over the former Bayan Cafe space on Martin Luther King Jr. St. N. According to Uptown Eats’ website the concept is still “currently working hard to be ready when St. Pete reopens.” But until then, the restaurant is offering pickup on fully-cooked, homemade “Monday Meals.” Rotating menus are posted each week to Uptown’s Facebook page.

This week, Uptown’s menu included a mixed green salad ($3), a steakhouse salad ($12), and a triple chocolate chip cookie ($3). The most enticing item was the corn and crab chowder made with potatoes, roasted peppers, fresh veggies and bacon served with jalapeno cheddar cornbread for $8. 

The meals are only available until they sell out, which they tend to do, so get your order in as soon as the menu for the week drops to get a taste.

The forthcoming restaurant—which will eventually open for dining-in at 689 Martin Luther King Jr. St. N. next to Mize Gallery—also hosts a Mug Club ($30 per month, or $300 for an entire year), which offers unlimited drip coffee, 50% off any specialty coffee drink and a custom limited-edition branded tumbler (you must bring your tumbler to get your free or discounted coffee).
