Colonial PortuGuese Fusion

Today, his story is set in Downtown St. Petersburg, Florida, ensconced in Central Avenue’s 400 Block, in the historic Kress Building. Once a Five & Dime, this space is now home to the Iberian Rooster, a Portuguese Fusion restaurant and speakeasy where the complexity of colonial street food meets the simplicity of tapas, interlocking in unexpectedly seamless ways to create innovative, dynamic flavors worthy of the harmony that exists between the culinary cultures of Mozambique, Macau, Brazil, and Goa. The lush space brims with the energy and warmth of Mouraria, and so does the colonial fusion on every small plate.
