ST. PETERSBURG — The lunch selection in downtown St. Petersburg just got a bit more interesting.

Ceviche Tapas Bar & Restaurant will start serving lunch at 11 a.m. Monday through Friday at its Beach Drive location.

Lunch is currently being served at its other restaurants in Clearwater and Orlando locations.

Foot traffic along trendy Beach Drive was the driving force behind opening the tapas restaurant for lunch.

"With the opening of the Chihuly Museum and the new Dali Museum (opening next week) we are seeing people out enjoying the waterfront area both during the day and at night. We now believe the economic outlook has improved enough that opening for lunch will benefit everyone overall," says Philip Orsino, chairman of Ceviche.

"We will do everything we can to be a key community partner in keeping downtown St. Petersburg on the map as a happening scene."

In addition the to regular menu, Ceviche will add traditional Spanish items including: Arroz con Pollo, Salteado and Carne do Braseada or a Spanish pot roast. The extended hours will also bring a demand for new jobs to the area as the restaurant looks to increase its kitchen and wait staffs.

Ceviche St. Pete is located in the Ponce de Leon Hotel at the corner of Beach Drive and Central Avenue.

In addition to the new lunch hours, Ceviche has introduced new specials including, an enhanced happy hour, Tapas Tuesdays featuring a $4 tapas menu and $4 sangria and Wine Wednesdays highlighting $4 wine flights with the first one free for ladies. This location also houses Pincho y Pincho, a seven-day a week coffee shop and bar open for breakfast and lunch.
