Tampeños, if you have a hankering for local seafood and creative cocktails, check out Trophy Fish, now open in Seminole Heights.

Trophy Fish established itself in St. Petersburg’s Grand Central District a few years ago for its fresh seafood, laid-back vibe and Instagram-worthy cocktails.

The same “bait-shop chic” aesthetic is found at the Seminole Heights location, which shares the building with its sister craft cocktail concept, Mandarin Heights.

Among the menu favorites are the house-made fish spread and grouper sandwich. Smoked shrimp, oysters, fish tacos and a seafood boil for two are likely crowd-pleasers. Dessert lovers can try house-made cheesecakes and ice cream.
