Celebrity Chefs Create Locale Market Culinary Experience St. Petersburg Florida


Dear Wellness Seekers,

Celebrity Chefs Create Locale Market Culinary Experience St. Petersburg Florida. This is a stunning paradise for foodies who want to shop for select freshness or hang out and enjoy the atmosphere with a great glass of wine in hand.  Just across the Bay from Tampa it offers an easy 30 minute trip over one of the long-span bridges with lovely water views – just enough distance to make you feel like you are on a mini get away.

Spanista is so excited about sharing discoveries in St. Petersburg that this will be the first a four-part series. And will include a visit to celebrated Salvador Dali Museum also in St. Pete for an extraordinary global exhibit entitled Picasso + Dali.

Today, I want to introduce you to the 20,00 sq. ft. two-story epicurean as two Celebrity Chef’s envisioned it at Locale Market. As a friendship ‘passion project’ it is a total urban chic environment that embraces the unique waterfront local.

Locale Market & Farmtable Kitchen is located in the Sundial, a boutique lifestyle center in the heart of this intimate harbor side city. Surrounded by an eclectic mix of classy high-rise condominiums, downtown business buildings and mixed local neighborhood establishments, it serves an eclectic mix of people, residents and visitors, including the CEO of HSN, Mindy Groosman who calls St. Pete one of her homes. Focused on advancing the fresh movement on Florida’s west coast opened mid December.

Celebrity Chefs, Michael Mina and Don Pintabona are super power partners. Michael’s expertise includes successful ownership of acclaimed restaurants in Miami, Southern California, Phoenix Seattle and Vegas. Don is former executive chef at Robert DeNiro’s Tribeca Grill, NYCity also a graduate of USF is happy and proud of this new way to serve Floridians.



Today’s post is about introducing the two Celebrity Chefs – Michael and Danny and share their debut in St.Petersburg. A teaser about what to come. Tomorrow we will go inside to enjoy the experience first hand.   To see what the media are saying, check out Tampa Times article by Laura Riley, Times Food Critic article, “Locale Market Opens To Gaga Shoppers at St. Petersburg Sundial.”
