Opened in late 2020, Social Roost features global comfort dining inspired by the many trips of the co-owners and St. Pete Native people Rob Bowen and Jason Teabout.

“No matter what country we are in, wherever we are, we can always find a chicken dish …” said Teabout. “So we wanted to bring these back to the church we both grew up in.”

Some fan favorites are the chicken samosas, which are served with a Thai dipping sauce, the chicken tangine with strong North African flavors, and the Peruvian chicken, which has a warm taste profile and is served with rice and beans, sweet plantains, citrus pico and pio Pio sauce.

The cocktails go hand in hand with Social Roost’s menu with creative flavors and artistic presentations. There are also a variety of tequila and mezcal options.

“A delicious meal always brings back memories of great cocktails,” said Bowen. “I really think you should try everything on the menu for a drink and a bite to eat and they go perfectly with this space we have here.”

Are you struggling to choose the perfect cocktail? Here are a few options to get you started:

  • Jet Setter – rum in the coconut cartel, spiced pineapple, nonino amaro, cinnamon, lime
