It’s not often that a relatively high profile chef in the area opens a brand new restaurant featuring one of the most intriguing themes you’ve seen in a while. But, Jeannie Pierola has done just that with her newest addition to the Tampa Bay restaurant landscape called Edison: Food + Drink Lab.
The former Bern’s executive chef has decided to take up shop in the Kennedy Boulevard space that once housed the short-lived Knife & Co. in this Hyde Park area.
Pierola seems to be planning what could easily become one of the most unique restaurants in the Bay area. The decor is a play on the industrial theme, much of it inspired by the restaurants namesake, Thomas Edison.
According to a press release, “daily flavor experiments and modern interpretations of everyday food,” is the name of the game so far at Edison. With a mind like Pierola’s, this could mean some truly one of a kind, delicious meals.
This Tampa chef was the creator of Kitchenbar – a month-long event where Pierola and her team would take over an abandoned space and turn it into a temporary restaurant – so you know her style is anything but bland or typical.
Pierola aims to create modern interpretations of classic comfort foods and offer a decent assortment of big name beers, microbrews, and wines alongside it all.
Edison: Food + Drink Lab is set to open its doors on Tuesday, August 7 at 11:30 a.m. Give ‘em a try soon, then let us know what you think with a rating and review on the Edison: Food + Drink Lab 813area business listing.
