Hammerhead Grille opening in downtown St Petersburg Florida

This morning as I was driving to work I saw the long-awaited sign: Hammerhead Grille to open in December (2007). Nearly every day for the last month there have been workers at the old Julian’s Restaurant on 2nd St N in downtown St Petersburg (at 3rd Ave N) but the old Julian’s sign still reigned and there was no announcement or sign for Hammerhead. Now that’s changed – they’re opening this month.

At first the signs said that Rattlefish Grille, the popular waterfront restaurant in Tampa, was coming. When I spoke with the owner a couple of months ago, he said that he was still coming but that all of the ownership group was not in agreement so he’d be opening under another name: Hammerhead Grille.

It will be nice to have it open, just a half block from our office. We’ve always liked the building, but Julian’s just didn’t cut it as a restaurant – neither the food nor the service matched the prices. Their lounge was nice – a quiet place to meet after a closing, with interesting heavy hors d’oeuvres … until they changed that, too. No wonder they went out of business.

We’ve enjoyed Rattlefish in Tampa, and are looking forward to welcoming Hammerhead to St. Pete.
