Dining in Downtown St Pete DTSP with the Entrepreneur Social Club

Our 2015 Favorite Restaurants in Downtown St. Pete for Dinner After the ESC

After our weekly Entrepreneur, Social Club meeting ends, we head further into downtown St. Petersburg to one of our favorite, delicious restaurants, where we eat, drink (more!) and continue to be merry! The ESC is a purely social club infused with strong, real-world business wisdom, mentoring, networking and problem-solving. And all of that work’s up our appetites, so I’ll get right down to the sharing of our 2015 Favorite Downtown St. Pete Restaurants for Dinner after the ESC. They are in alphabetical order for ease and fairness, I’ll note the ones that are member-owned and / or exceptionally great! Keep in mind that we only go to restaurants with adult beverages, though some here only serve beer and wine. Also, a key factor is lighting, ambiance and being able to sit 12-20+ of us all together. No sitting apart, this is a group event, the Entrepreneur Social Club. And yes, it’s ok to buy me, Michael S. Novilla, the founder, dinner. =D

Acropolis Greek Taverna at 515 Central Avenue, St. Pete, 33701   727-823-1010
The food is consistently solid good, the menu is huge and diverse and the restaurant large enough to roam around. Full liquor and outdoor seating. What we like most about Acropolis is that they throw napkins up in the air and I’ve created a game, being an April Fool baby myself, where we all must hit each other with a napkin, at least once each, in a nice fun way (no spitballs). Silly, yet super stress relieving, just what us Entrepreneurs need! Opa!!
