Tangelo's is moving from downtown to Gulfport

St. Petersburg

Tangelo's leaves downtown for Gulfport site

St. Petersburg will be without one of its popular downtown restaurants by the end of the summer. Tangelo's Grille, the small Caribbean-style restaurant at 226 First Ave. N, is moving to Gulfport. "Our rent has more than doubled," owner Lisa Brennan said Tuesday. "It's impossible for us to stay." Brennan said it will be tough to leave the city. Tangelo's, which opened more than 23 years ago, has been a mainstay on the downtown block it shares with other restaurants and the recently-renovated Jannus Live. Some consider it a pioneer in the downtown restaurant scene. Throughout the years, the restaurant has become a draw to locals and tourists for its Cuban sandwiches and hearty dishes. An exact moving date hasn't been set, but Brennan said it will probably be sometime in August. She already has a new place picked out. The new Tangelo's will be at 3121 Beach Blvd. S.
