Though meals tend to bring friends together, meals peppered with magnets can push them apart. Enjoy an attractive repast with today’s Groupon: for $17, you get $35 worth of Fresh Seafood, sandwiches, and drinks at Jonny Reno’s in St. Petersburg.
From the far edge of St. Petersburg’s Pier, the chefs of Jonny Reno’s whip up a menu boasting uniquely prepared seafood, salads, and sandwiches. Waterfront views and stunning sunsets fall over diners as they partake in eclectic cuisine such as grouper-nuggets piccata ($10) drenched in a zesty lemon-caper sauce, or a cold shrimp salad ($11) filled with arugula, fennel, citrus vinaigrette, and high-fives left hanging. Shonan seared ahi tuna ($18) arrives rare, encrusted with peppercorns, and sporting a posse of baby bok choy, marinated shiitake mushrooms, and wasabi whipped mashed potatoes. Feasters can supplement bites from a pulled-pork sandwich ($9) or shrimp po boy ($11) with sips from a selection of 16 rotating drafts including Longhammer IPA ($5.75), or head dunks in the nearby Tampa Bay. Those seeking libation-fueled thrills may linger post-meal and partake with local revelers and lampshade-clad pirates dancing to live music on a regular basis.
