Fodor's Expert Review Cassis American Brasserie
If you drop in for a drink at one of the best places in St. Petersburg for happy hour, it's worth sticking around for the French-inspired cuisine for dinner. More casual options include a croque monsieur, but there are also entrées like bouillabaisse and Atlantic salmon, which is served with smashed peas, baby-carrot confit, and an orange-coriander glaze. The wine list is formidable, and the cocktails are a Friday-evening draw for local movers and shakers. Given that the location is on bustling Beach Drive, the people-watching here is second to none. If you're around in the morning, stroll over to the attached bakery for a pastry and some coffee.
