It was a go-to spot for lunch in downtown St. Petersburg in late 1980s, everyone in the know singing the praises of the tarragon chicken salad and the tomato basil tart. But all good things must come to an end. Suzy Johnson and her partner/husband Ron Lees were divorced and he got custody of their beloved Apropos Restaurant. He moved it to the Fresco's location and kept it going for a number of years while Johnson spent time in Hawaii. Apropos was reborn in 2011, and it still has the tarragon chicken salad, it still has the tomato basil tart, and it still has its devoted fans. The breakfast/lunch space is modest, a handful of tables set on a cheery checkerboard floor, an intimate lunch counter overlooking the cramped quarters of the kitchen; fax: (727) 823-8901. Hours: 7:30 a.m.-3 p.m. Mon.-Fri., 7:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Sat., closed Sun. Read our latest review.
