The Grateful Fed Pub opens to serve St. Pete’s late night crowd

St Petersburg, FL — The burgeoning Edge district has added yet another eatery to its growing scene. The Grateful Fed Pub, a Grateful Dead themed pub and lounge, has opened on the ground floor of the Urban Style Flats building, at 300 10th Street South. It is the first restaurant in the city to offer a late night, from scratch menu, until 5am.

Sean Ford, former Executive Chef at Tryst, recognized a demand for both comfort food and healthy food when he created the concept of The Grateful Fed Pub. “In my five years at Tryst, I served the city’s late night workers around Beach Drive and First Block. The restaurant scene has expanded in St Pete, but not for late night workers or those wanting healthy delivery. “It’s nearly impossible to eat healthy after hours,” Ford continues, “and no one delivers
commissary.” The restaurant has a small “convenience store” with hygiene items, snacks, toiletries, coffee, etc. that it will deliver along with food, until 5am.

In addition to delivery, the interior is currently undergoing a complete redesign, but remains open during construction. It features a full liquor bar, featuring five signature cocktails, craft beers, and two outdoor patios; one of which is adjacent to the recently redesigned pool and volleyball courts.

The entirely new menu was designed for the eclectic tastes of downtown St Petersburg residents. Alongside the solid bar staples like burgers and wings, the menu boasts a variety of healthy options. Examples include a red quinoa and grilled vegetable burrito with alfalfa sprouts, heirloom tomato and avocado, and a cheeseburger that has krispy kreme doughnuts for the bun.

There will be a ribbon cutting with the Mayor, Chamber of Commerce and friends and family the night of February 8th at 5pm. The Grand Opening will follow, on February 10th. Future plans include serving breakfast and coffee 7 days a week, geared towards St Petersburg’s growing population of downtown professionals.

The Grateful Fed Pub is located on the west side of the Urban Style Flats Building, located directly adjacent to the Tropicana Field Parking lot. It is open Monday through Thursday at 4pm, and Saturday and Sunday at noon. Closing time is 4am with delivery until 5am. In addition to dining in, delivery, and takeout, The Grateful Fed Pub is available for private events and catering.
