If you are walking around St. Petersburg, be sure to stop by Roam.

A new restaurant is opening in the Lealman neighborhood of St. Petersburg, and it describes itself as a “fusion of classic French cuisine and NY Steakhouse with a Southern twist.”

The soft Roam Restaurant and Bar opened last week at 3405 34th St. N in St. Petersburg, and is now open Thursday through Sunday, serving its thick steaks and signature cocktails.

Roam’s menu is avant-garde and full of hearty American classics with a noble twist. Standouts include his New York lobster mac and cheese, blackened Cajun strip loin steak, and New Zealand lamb chops served with a honey garlic sauce and salad. citrus.

Sides include Parmesan Truffle Fries, Garlic Green Beans, and Lemon Parmesan Risotto, as St. Pete’s new restaurant also offers a full beer and wine list to complement your stacked dinner. A full cocktail program is still in the works, as guests can expect drinks like prickly pear margaritas and Roam’s “taxi cab,” a citrus vodka cocktail topped with cabernet.

Roam’s offerings will also be seasonal and rotating, so don’t get used to its current menu, which can be browsed on its Facebook.

A recent Tampa Bay Times article explains that Roam is the brainchild of Joshua and Christian Jackson, the chefs and brothers behind St. Pete’s popular food truck, Red’s BBQ. Known for their St. Louis-style ribs and pulled pork, the Jacksons have now opted for a more upscale menu of classic American fare for their new restaurant.

Red BBQ fans, don’t worry. According to its Facebook, the beloved food truck will remain open at 3405 34th St. N for the time being, the same address as the new restaurant, Roam.

Hours will still be somewhat tentative until the restaurant moves to full service, as Roam is now open 4-10 p.m. Thursday-Sunday, 1-10 p.m. Saturday, and 11 a.m.-3 p.m. on Sundays, with plans to offer an exclusive brunch menu soon.

ILovetheBurg’s recent article previews Roam’s upcoming brunch menu, which will eventually feature dishes like shrimp and grits, smothered potatoes, French toast and more.
