Fodor's Expert Review Birch & Vine

$$$ St. Petersburg American

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. Umbrella-covered patio tables face Beach Drive and North Straub Park to provide the best people-watching. Take particular note of the maple cream sous vide scallops, and the duck breast seared and topped with blackberry-and-five-spice sauce, contemporary preparations that complement the reimagined 1920s property. 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.
