Java and Dune Who?
Just who are Java and Dune? We are friends who love to meet, talk for hours and enjoy great food and drink. The idea for this blog came about because people always ask us for recommendations about where to eat in St. Petersburg. The downtown area is hotter than ever and there is a palpable buzz surrounding "the burg." The Museum of Fine Arts, the Chihuily Gallery and the Dali Museum create this wonderful artistic triangle with lots of fine restaurants in the middle of it. Lots of folks want to find a snack before going to a show at The American Stage, while others want to be somewhere hip to see and be seen. Of course, some restaurants are the destination itself. Our screen names keep us somewhat anonymous as we stealthily sip coffee, while drinking in the crowd and the decor of whatever establishment we are in. In theory, Java represents the modern downtown coffee bars and Dune represents the beachy diners and kitschy places of Florida's past. Our goal is to talk about our culinary adventures and our hope is to have input from like minded foodies. Join us on this journey by giving your opinion and suggestions on the restaurants you love.
