Anything new in N. Pinellas Co?

We're looking for some new places to go. Our faves right now are Casa Ludovico, Casa Tina's. There's a new place, Ugie's, that opened, but it is super casual. Anything we're missing out on?

    Pico Rojo Rotisserie? I believe it is new and is getting rave reviews . . . Just a chicken place, tho.

      I tried this last Friday and liked it. I had the half chicken and two sides. I thought the price was a little high at $10.99. And that was for a true half chicken. You can get an all dark, mixed or all white half chicken with a different price on each. the price was the only slight downside I had with the place. I'll be back but probably to get the all dark half.

        I really like this place. The chicken is very moist and well flavored. I love their fried yucca. They also have two nice housemade dipping sauces, a garlic aioli and a green hot pepper sauce.

        Do yourself a favor and get to Blue Dog Po-Boys in Clearwater.

        I stopped in today w/ a co-worker. Ordered the 1/2 shrimp and 1/2 oyster po-boy. Hands down, best po-boy i've had. Perfectly fried, fresh shrimp and oysters. Fresh bread, fresh tomato and mixed greens. The "WHO DAT" sauce is finger licking good.

        My co-worker had the fried aligator po-boy. Had a taste and honestly, best gator I've ever eaten. Perfectly fried.

            Thanks for the suggestions. I love Pico Rojo, but their prices have increased exponentially in the past few years. I have the original take out menu and several variations after as well. The food is really tasty (I love their lime dressing) but their prices are approaching something I wouldn't pay for casual dining.

            I'll have to check out the Po Boys place. Sounds interesting. Thanks for the tips!
