ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Ray Lampe, known as “Dr. BBQ,” is bringing the flavor to St. Petersburg.
With partners Suzanne and Roger Perry, owners of the Datz, Dough, and Roux restaurants in Tampa, Lampe brings a new class of dynamic, food-forward smoke-basted meats to Dr. BBQ in St. Pete's thriving Edge District.
Offering “new American barbeque" to the Tampa Bay area, the full-service restaurant sizzles with global flavors. Dr. BBQ created these exclusive new recipes by drawing on inspiration from his travels and the local tastes of St. Pete.
And he’s mustered a fantastic team to make the magic. Pitmaster Lee Jasper brings his skill sets to the kitchen, forming a formidable trio of BBQ experts capable of creating the perfect proteins, sides, and sweets.
The bar features a remarkable selection of bourbons curated by an award-winning mixologist, along with a creative cocktail program, artisanal spirits, house-made cola, and local beers.
The rustic industrial ambiance of the interior complements the cuisine and gives diners a number of seating options: from community tables to private booths to a couple of saddles, guests are welcome to relax and enjoy.
Dr. BBQ is located at 1101 1st Ave. S, St. Petersburg, FL 33705. Click here for more information.
