Robin King and her husband, Jack King, opened Three Birds Tavern in St. Petersburg in October 2009. The Kings completely revamped the restaurant, housed in a century-old farm house and surrounded by oak trees. Three Birds, at 1492 Fourth St. N., features
plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, and offers American classics with a
modern twist for lunch, dinner, and late night, daily.
"We hope to be a
part of your family celebrations, and to be here to comfort you during
your rough days," Robin says.
Tell us a secret! This
old house has been a residence, funeral home, orphanage, business
office, biker bar, British pub, and, it's haunted. But don't worry
'bout a thing, 'cause they're friendly ghosts!
Your story: After
falling in love with food in Indonesia in the early '80s, learning to
cook in New Orleans in the late '80s, and working special events for
years, I finally decided to make the industry that fuels my passion a
career, rather than a hobby.
Favorite part: Watching
tables of guests share celebrations, first dates, quiet moments, loud
stories, sporting events and solo outings, while sampling new beer or
wine, and enjoying delicious food.
Biggest struggle: Maintaining a staff that share our passion and desire for excellence.
