Fodor's Review

Seasonal, locally sourced ingredients work equally well in both the surf and the turf columns at Birch & Vine, which has turned The Birchwood hotel lobby and patio into an evening dining destination for hungry diners in downtown St. Petersburg. Take particular note of the maple cream sous vide scallops, and the duck breast seared and topped with blackberry-5-spice sauce, contemporary preparations that complement the reimagined 1920s property. Umbrella-covered patio tables face Beach Drive and North Straub Park to provide the best people-watching. The lively weekend scene can create conversational challenges at the interior tables and banquettes; for a quiet dinner, reserve on Monday or Tuesday, or arrange to rent one of the private dining rooms for up to 12 guests.
