Wines, cheeses, sandwiches, olives and more
Taste to Go, a wine, cheese and sandwich shop, has opened at 1110 Pinellas Bayway S. Residents Tracy and Gary Moss said they created the shop based on feedback from friends and their own longing for things they missed from New York, their former hometown. With an open kitchen and outdoor seating with a water view, the couple are promoting the shop as a place to shop, eat or relax. They stock 100 wines, assorted beers, premium teas and gourmet cheeses, sausages, olives and more. Taste to Go is open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.
