The restaurant traditionally known for its relaxed coastal cuisine, has introduced a new menu to bring Nouveau American Cuisine to Beach Drive in downtown St. Petersburg. Director of Culinary, Chef Nick Ocando says, “The new summer menu items are thoughtful and welcoming with a strong focus on high quality ingredients treated with respect.”
The new menu items feature a wide variety of food sourced from many local farmers. This keeps the menu seasonally driven giving patrons the highest quality food to enjoy. One of the unique selections offered is the Piedmontese Beef Filet. This is a hard to find Italian breed of beef that is higher in protein than black angus beef. 400 Beach is one of the few restaurants in the area to import this special cut of beef.
Monica’s cornbread, one of the most popular new starters comes from a special family recipe.
Being a Maine native, Chef Nick takes the utmost pride in the quality of seafood we serve, such as, George’s Bank Scallops served with fava beans, English peas, baby summer peppers and fire roasted corn. Classics from his home town like the 400 Lobster Roll, East Coast Oysters and New England clam chowder are also delicious new additions to the menu.
All of the menu items at 400 Beach are complemented by any one of the bar’s signature cocktails created by Ingi Sigurdsson, Director of Beverage. Ingi states, “Our new summer cocktail menu features classic summer cocktails with a fun and unique spin. For instance, our Rum Runner is made with banana, blackberry and lemon and sure to surprise the senses.” Fresh and lively summer flavors like cucumber, strawberry, mint, peach and even brûlèe’d jalapeno, turn every sip into a delightful complexity that will leave you craving another. There are five new cocktails to appeal to every type of liqueur lover.
