The folks behind some of St. Pete's best bars are opening a new concept that will surely boast one of the most scenic waterfront views in all of The Burg.'

Perry's Porch is a new restaurant that will open adjacent to the St. Pete Pier and the St. Petersburg Museum of History at 600 2nd Ave. NE—a space that was most recently occupied by craft beer spot Hops and Props.

This upcoming concept will be a combination of open-air and indoor seating, since its name is a homage to the 20th century developer Perry Snell, who’s known for revitalizing several St. Pete neighborhoods with his unique approach to architecture, nature, and walkability. 

Perry’s Porch will offer a menu chock full of fresh and local flavors when it debuts in the summer of 2023.

Construction will begin early next year.

Seed & Feed Hospitality Group are the folks behind Perry’s Porch, and also operate popular concepts like Trophy Fish and Mandarin Hide in downtown St. Pete and Mandarin Heights in Tampa. According to a press release, Perry’s Porch will offer a unique, to-go “picnic experience” for folks who want to enjoy their meal at Spa Beach Park or Vinoy Park instead, in addition to a curated cocktail menu similar to that of its sibling concepts.

Perry’s Porch is a small part of the expansion that the 100 year-old St. Petersburg Museum of History is currently undergoing. Its website states that other additions  include a Visit St. Pete/Clearwater welcome center, Explore Florida! exhibit, the scenic “Flight Deck" and a massive piece of artwork from artist Ya La’Ford.

Renderings from St. Pete-based WJ Architect firm depict Perry's as a sleek restaurant with an adjoining cafe, both covered in dusty pink tones and scenic foliage. 

"We see this as a chance to leave an indelible mark on the St. Pete culinary scene,” said 
Seed & Feed's Blake Thompson in a press release. “We want this venue to become an extension of the St. Petersburg Museum of History experience and have us help serve as St. Pete ambassadors to each guest that may be visiting our amazing city.”  Thompson joins fellow St. Pete natives Ryan and Bill Griffin in the opening of this St. Pete Pier-adjacent concept.
