Datz is officially open in downtown St. Petersburg.
Owners Suzanne and Roger Perry celebrated the grand opening of the comfort food emporium Monday. The new restaurant at 180 Central Ave. is neighbors with the James Museum of Western & Wildlife Art.
It's the first Datz outside of the Perry's popular South Tampa flagship, which opened a decade ago.
Original Datz menu items are available at the new spot, like the Cheesy Todd (a 1.5–pound ground brisket and short rib burger with cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onion and pickle on two bacon-jalapeno mac and cheese "buns"), cinnamon roll mocktails and Datchos (housemade sweet and salty chips with chili, cheese, blue cheese drizzle and jalapenos).
