Breaking News – From La V to Asie – New Sushi Coming to DTSP

I had the pleasure of speaking with the manager of La V, Jason Saal, today regarding their newest restaurant concept.  They have procured the venue directly to the right of their current location where Zatar used to be.

New Restaurant, Asie, Opening in Downtown St Pete

Remember when I posted asking what Beercade was going to be, well now we know.  Beercade never came to fruition but the newest Sushi/ Pan-Asian Fusion concept, Asie (pronounced a-zee), will now occupy that space.

New Restaurant, Asie, Soon to Open in Downtown St Pete

The plan is to open up a door sized space between the two restaurants which enables them to obtain a full liquor license which can be shared by both restaurants.  The liquor license opens up a whole new world for them.

Asia, which means Asia in French, keeps their connection to the root of the French colony. Pronounced as {a-zie}, Asie's menu will be inspired by Eastern cultures connected by a Western touch. Along with fresh and inspired Sushi and Pan-Asian Cuisine, they plan to create a cocktail menu with a unique flair that will blend well with their dishes.  This is so exciting because we have nothing like this in Downtown St Pete currently!

Saal says that they will be offering live music by local bands and artists that will perform on a weekly basis on the stage that they plan for the back of the large space. Also, with the door opening to connect to La V, they will have enough square footage to offer space for big parties, events and private gatherings.

The plan is to have the same late hours as La V (Open Fri and Sat until 2am), and of course an amazing happy hour.  We all love those happy hours!!

"We worked really hard for the great reputation we have currently with our local businesses such as La V and Nouvelle, we will achieve the same thing with Asie by delivering fresh, healthy and reasonably priced products and of course, one thing and one thing only that is we would welcome you with our personal interaction to meet your desire." Thuy Le, Owner of La V, Nouvelle and Asie

We are honored to be the first to bring the news of this exciting new venture and we will keep you posted as things progress.

Expected to open Summer 2017.
