Hey Chowhounds. We're headed to Gulfport for a 50th Birthday gathering in Oct. We're coming in from SF, and NY. We'll be staying in Gulfport but we're willing to travel to St Pete, and local areas for some great food. The hostess prefers we not travel far. I'm in charge of the food.
We need places with a good selection of vegetarian options. The birthday girl and several others are vegetarian. There will be 15 of us.
Causal is fine. I've read some Bay Area posts already. How are:
are there any other places in Gulfport that you'd recommend?
How is Mazzaro's if we decided to get take out from the catering menu?
How is Cerviches? The Tapa menu has tons of vegetarian options and looks great.
Also for my own selfish interest, how is Ted Peters Smokehouse?
Any waterside restaurants you'd recommend for a cocktail or sunset. I looked at some and of course there aren't any good veggie options but it would be nice to sit by the water and have a drink and an app or two.
Markets: How is the Sat morning market in St Pete. It reopens Oct 1st
Markets: Any good healthfood/organic stores to buy some groceries and organic produce?
Any breakfast place recommendations in Gulfport?
Thanks Chowhounders. I know you'll take care of me.
