According to St. Pete Catalyst, "gourmet delivery" restaurant Doormét recently closed its second location at 681 Central Ave.
“We have had consistent issues in St. Pete, everything from finding help, to growing the business, to increased food costs, to increased labor costs, high rents, and a general difficulty in reaching residences and getting orders from homes at night," the farewell email reads. "Ultimately, these issues caused family issues and were a serious detriment to our quality of life."
The only remaining Doormet location in Tampa Bay resides at 1155 S Dale Mabry Hwy. no. 12, and will fulfill any current catering orders that its now-closed St. Pete restaurant had. Gift cards can also be used at its Tampa location, or can be refunded by emailing
Doormét's second location debuted in downtown St. Pete in the summer of 2020, offering much-needed delivery services during a time where most restaurants were still dealing with COVID-19-related limitations.
Early last year, Creative Loafing Tampa Bay food critic Jon Palmer Claridge called Doormét "a pleasant surprise," lauding its Italian-style chicken dishes and hand-tossed pizzas.
