If you have food sensitivities, then you’re going to enjoy this particular bistro coming to the old WEPA space which closed in July at 222 22nd St. S in St. Petersburg.
Sōl Bistro specializes in “gluten-free, lactose intolerant friendly, peanut-free, soy-free, refined sugar free” comfort foods that anyone can indulge in, according to its website. While the concept will serve meat, you can also expect vegan and vegetarian options on the menu.
Owners Debbie DeVico O’Neil and husband Ron O’Neil—the duo behind Xtreme Fitness and Cycling Studio—want diners to experience food the same way others can. Whether you’re health-conscious or just have a food sensitivity—there’s something on the menu for you.
Sōl promises that everything on the menu is made with “whole food ingredients” and the produce is always local and in-season. That means grass-fed beef, poultry and eggs; sheep and goat’s milk; organic cultured cow’s milk products (think butter and non-fat greek yogurt); nothing processed, always GMO-free.
There’s no exact opening date or menu yet—even the concept’s phone number is still coming soon—but an early fall opening is expected.
