Gently tucked away in the basement of historic and iconic 100+ year old white brick building is the New York-hip, Japanese-style eating and drinking den, Ichicoro Ane. The restaurant made its public debut Sunday, December 10, 2017, which was, of course, World Ramen Day. Chef-partner Noel Cruz and co-chef Brandren Lenz rounded out the menu with a creative selection of Asian-infused cuisine, including raw fish dishes, izakaya small plates, karaage, and some of the best ramen Tampa Bay has to offer. The eclectic space features more than the buzz-worthy eatery. There is also a DJ booth and the exclusive, reservation only Bā Lounge — for late-night sipping in a club-like atmosphere. The worldly styled restaurant with its alluring, ambient decor, and various dining, casual and private areas, will whisk you away, slighting you to believe you stumbled upon a hidden gem while wondering the side streets of New York City. Mixed with flair and personality, Ichicoro Ane embodies the spirit of Downtown St. Petersburg; a prideful, historic, charming, and budding international city.
The one-of-a-kind bar nestled inside Ichicoro Ane can host private parties and events, keep you off the radar when you need a reprieve from society, and is the perfect get away for an after dinner drink. The cocktail menu is just as interesting and ultraprogressive as the space they are crafted in, conceived and executed by exceptionally knowledgeable and artistic bartenders. Experience the raved-about Black Mage cocktail, a drink that will spark your taste buds with its combination of activated charcoal amaro, lime, pineapple and IPA. We invite you to stay awhile, with one of our signature cocktails in hand, of course.
