Datz To Open In St. Pete

Datz, Tampa’s beloved foodie hotspot in South Tampa, is coming to St. Pete!

The Tampa Bay Times confirmed the new restaurant will adjoin the forthcoming James Museum of Western and Wildlife Art at 180 Central Ave. There will also be a smaller Datz cafe inside the museum. (You can bet we’ll be Coasting to the hub at 2nd Street & 1st Ave N for donuts and bacon galore come spring.)

Suzanne and Roger Perry, owners of Datz, will also open DR. BBQ, a partnership with local BBQ legend Ray Lampe, at 1101 1st Ave S in the EDGE District in 2018. Don’t worry, there’s a hub just across the street at 11th Street N & Central Ave, so you can bike off that brisket.

Welcome to St. Pete, Team Datz. We look forward to eating your creations on both sides of the bay.
