Sophisticated Southern Magazine Highlights St. Pete As An ‘Emerging Food Town’
|Garden & Gun Coverage|
St. Pete/Clearwater (Sept. 22, 2017) – Affirming St. Pete/Clearwater’s growing reputation as an under-the-radar foodie paradise, Garden & Gun named St. Pete as one of The South’s Best Food Towns on the culinary rise—in the company of Charleston, Nashville and New Orleans, among others.
Featured as an emerging food town to visit, St. Pete’s food tour spotlights local hotspots, describing New York-off-shoot Empire Oyster as an example of how “St. Pete has even attracted interest from afar.”
It also describes St. Pete/Clearwater’s craft brewery scene, which is the largest in the state, as a “craze that jumped the bay from Tampa with a vengeance.”
“Garden & Gun is a respected and sophisticated voice in the culinary and travel space, so for it to recognize St. Pete as an emerging food town speaks volumes about the destination,” Visit St. Pete/Clearwater President and CEO David Downing said. “Accolades like this continue to confirm how diverse the destination is beyond our famous beaches with a world-class art scene and tremendous local cuisine.”
Garden & Gun mapped out the ultimate weekends for eating and drinking through The South in the October/November issue, which is on sale now.
