Life is too short to eat bad food.

French & New American Cuisine

The Black Pearl opened in 1996, since its inception, it has been the home of true Fine Dining for Pinellas County. The Black Pearl building was built in 1905, originally a barbershop, then a mayor's office, and then heavily renovated in 1946. Since then it has been a restaurant for close to 50 years. From our food to our service we take what we do VERY seriously. We have 12 tables, so reservations are not required but heavily recommended as we fill up weeks in advance.

An unparalleled gastronomic say the least! My partner and I began our culinary journey on Friday, October 22nd @ 8:00 P.M. with an amuse-bouche hors d'œuvre consisting of freshly baked bread and champagne infused grapes accompanied by a Gruyère fondue. The cheese was Heaven in liquid form! For a starter, we chose the Escargot - the flavor truly came out of it's shell (pun intended=) To follow, we had The Black Pearl and Caesar salads. The roughage was moist and crisp with diabolical flavors! Seriously, probably the best Caesar salad that I have ever had the pleasure to consume! After the salads and before the entrée, we were given a palate cleanser of homemade Granny Smith Apple sorbet. It was akin to taking a bite out of Autumn! Spectacular! For our entrées, my partner selected the New Zealand Rack of Lamb and I went with the Hereford Filet Mignon! Two of the best decisions we have ever made with regard to food! The meats were tender, velvety and bursting with flavor! 86 that - EXPLODING with flavor! My better half had never tried lamb and now he's "shepherd's hooked" for life! For dessert: he chose The Black Pearl's Licorice ice cream and I opted for the Vanilla Bean scoops! Ben & Jerry could learn a thing or two from your chef! Just say'in! To close the meal, chef presented us with gratis Belgian chocolates, slightly infused with cayenne pepper! Sweet n' Spicy and everything Nicey! Wow! The decor was minimalist, to encourage conversation, yet chic and extremely intimate, as the restaurant seats only 36 at capacity! Our server Peter was both a gentleman and a scholar! He was extremely knowledgeable and attentive! Kind, clever and witty, with a charming sense of humor! Truly a master at his craft! You made us feel overly welcome sir, and we greatly appreciate that! Suffice to say, you are doing yourself a disservice If you have not dined at The Black Pearl of Dunedin, FL! Of this you can be certain...we shall return! Bon Appétit =)
