I'll be in St. Pete for a week in August and want to know what you all recommend. I know St. Pete well, since I grew up there and visit 2-3 times a year. However, my eating options usually don't go past the bad chain "italian" restaurants that my family seems to love. I don't do seafood or steak, and would love recommendations for places with good wine lists, cheese selections, on the beach or vegetarian options (although I am not limited by any of these).
When I am without the non-chowhound family, I find myself going back to the same places (albeit good, I'd like to branch out and be happy about it).
