This is great news. We heard that Pat Croce (buy his book here), of the way-cool Pirate & Treasure Museum purchased the Santa Maria Restaurant. You know the one, it's out over the River, south of the Bridge of Lions.
Pat has done some awesome work around St Augustine Florida, which according to this Blog, are the Pirate & Treasure Museum, the Colonial Quarter, and the First Colony at Government House. And we agree with the blogger, that “Pat never goes half way”.
We think it’s about time something like this happen; the Santa Maria is the only restaurant in St Augustine that is built over the Matanzas River with great views, day and night, of the bridge of lions, the city Marina, the light house, just WOW!
Pat Croce is changing St Augustine for the better, and he’s not the kind of guy to stop doing that now. So we are very excited about his new acquisition. We know he will do it ‘Right’ and it will be fabulous!
We will keep up updated as we hear more.
