From side dishes to musical selections, Rococo has brought a subversive eye to reinventing the steakhouse, its presence alone a novelty in downtown St. Pete, where there is an odd paucity of steakhouses. Rococo Steak offers no creamed spinach, no boats of béarnaise, no baked potatoes. Perhaps it's no accident that the new project from the Caledon Concept Partners (parent company of the Ceviche group) has set up shop in the historic 1920s YWCA building in St. Petersburg. It is seriously "W" friendly. It offers a range of smaller steaks, shareable appetizers, a wine list that goes far beyond big-name California cabs and a cocktail list that isn't dark-liquor dominated. And the décor has done away with the traditional paradigm of dark wood and "old boys' club" atmosphere, with deep gray walls, white cove ceilings and ruby-red chandeliers. Newly expanded in 2015. Hours: 5-10 p.m. Tues. through Sun.
