Noble Crust Wesley Chapel – NOW OPEN!


A popular St. Petersburg restaurant has brought its seasonal Italian and Southern soul to The Shops at Wiregrass.

Noble Crust’s newest restaurant, 3,200 square feet with around 166 seats inside and an additional 56 seats outdoors, recently opened next to Pinchers at 28330 Paseo Drive.

“We’re excited to bring our independent eatery concept to a growing neighborhood in Tampa,” according to a statement from co-founder TJ Thielbar. “This is a flourishing area, and we’re looking forward to growing our success in this community.”

More or less, the Wesley Chapel menu will be consistent with what’s offered in Pinellas –  Seasonal Italian with Southern soul is their tagline. It has the same well-worn, comfortable vibe, and open kitchen and bar that will feature crafted beers and drinks, and wine on tap.

Noble Crust’s brunch has been voted one of Tampa Bay’s best by various publications, and it features items such as deviled eggs, ricotta gnocchi, Lemon Ricotta pancakes, Spinach and goat cheese frittata,  four cheese grits and fried chicken and waffles.

Some of the restaurant’s dinner favorites include its popular beef-and-veal meatballs, southern fried chicken, shrimp and grits, sweet potato ravioli and rigatoni and short rib ragu.

And of course, there are the pizzas, like the Noble Pig, which features sweet fennel sausage, spicy soppressata and pickled cherry peppers, and the Roasted Mushroom, with shiitake and oyster mushrooms. Gluten-free crust is also available.
