New food hall Central Park releases more dining details prior to opening next year in St. Pete

Three floors of diverse eats with a rooftop park.


Tampa Bay has been buzzing since the announcement of a three-story food hall coming to St. Pete's Central Avenue, and now more details have been shared about what is to come at Central Park.

Located at 561 Central Ave. N., within the former space of the beloved Dome Grill, this food hall is not to be confused with the forthcoming hall within the Sundial or the Hall on Central within the former Furnish Me Vintage building.

According to a release, the 24,000-square-foot transformation shoots to be a "culinary hub for the local community; from health-conscious foodies to gourmet connoisseurs." 

The first floor of Hall on Central is set to host a bar and the flagship food hall, focusing on "healthy" European dining, as well as host a variety of international eateries. 

As for the second floor, locals and tourists will get a taste of the award-winning Speaks Clam Bar, with a menu comprised of fresh seafood, Italian specialties, housemade pasta, and "garden to glass" cocktails

The most glamorous floor of them all, the third floor, offers up a rooftop dining concept by chef and restaurateur Natalia Levey. Levey boasts over two decades of international culinary experience and is also widely known as a culinary educator, TEDx speaker and author of the book Cravings Boss - The Real Reason You Crave Food and a 5-Step Plan to Take Back Control. 

“We look forward to Central Park becoming the ‘go-to’ destination for meaningful interpersonal, business and culinary connections for the vibrant community of St Petersburg,” stated Levey in a release. 

Central Park food hall is scheduled to open summer 2021, the Sundial's food hall is also set to open in 2021, while Hall on Central's first phase isn't set to open until 2022.
