The newest place on St Pete Beach that is popular with the locals is The Blue Parrot. It is located on Leverock's end of Corey Ave. It opened about a month ago and we have eaten lunch there four times now. The variety and quality of their sandwiches are very good. I recently ordered the steak sandwich with portobello mushrooms. My wife ordered her usual chicken sandwich and a friend ordered the shrimp salad wrap. We were all pleased with our choices. We plan on making the restaurant a regular on our daily lunch excursions.
On a different note, The Bridgeview, a few doors down, has closed. Ferg, the recent owner has the property as well as the run-down cottages for sale. Probably will be turned into condos like the rest of the waterfront properties on the beaches.
