Gracie Pasta & Provisions is opening its second location at 1431 Central Ave. in St. Pete’s EDGE District. You may be familiar with the specialty shop whose original location is stationed on Pass-a-Grille next door to its sister concept, Grace Restaurant.
Set to open later this week, Gracie's new location is set to offer handcrafted pasta, macaroons, gourmet cheeses, jams as well as locally sourced fruits and veggies.
“We’ve seen the need [for Gracie Pasta & Provisions] in the community with everyone cooking at home during the COVID-19 pandemic, and we’re happy to fill it by expanding to downtown [St. Pete],” Jenna Byrns, manager of Gracie Pass-a-Grille location, told Creative Loafing Tampa Bay on a phone call.
Byrns also told us that move-in for the concept started the first of the month, and the owners, Chef Marlin Kaplan and Lisa Masterson hope to have doors open by Thursday, Sept. 10, if all goes smoothly with permitting.
Until then, you can check out the concept’s OG Pass-a-Grille location at 116 8th Ave. on St. Pete Beach.
