Looks like we'll have to wait a little longer for poultry-focused concept Social Roost Kitchen and Bar at 150 1st Street N. in St. Petersburg.
The full-service restaurant was initially slated for a fall opening, but a rep for Social Roost told CL that they hope to be open by the end of 2019. "It is an extremely difficult space for a restaurant, which complicates our build out far beyond a typical restaurant build out. We are jumping hurdles like pros though," the rep told CL while adding the Roost team is excited and doing all they can to open their doors as soon as possible.
This winter we can expect a menu filled with globally-inspired chicken dishes, possibly a new chicken sandwich contender?
Along with all things poultry in the kitchen, Social Roost will also host a full bar pouring up craft cocktails before the obligatory stroll down Beach Drive.
More details on menu options and opening date as construction continues.
