28 North Gastropub has been named one of the up-and-coming Best New Restaurants in the Golden Spoon awards by Florida Trend Magazine. For over 50 years, Florida Trend has provided readers with a guide to the state’s finest restaurants, celebrating the diversity of dining opportunities from coast to coast. The Golden Spoon awards recognize individual achievement and distinctive contributions to the Florida restaurant scene. “Dining out is a major activity for Florida citizens and our more than 110 million annual visitors,” says Florida Trend Publisher, Andy Corty. “We are pleased to recognize the leaders.”

Located in Viera on Town Center Avenue, 28 North Gastropub has a locally sourced chef-curated menu of elevated pub-style food with a full bar, including handcrafted cocktails and a rotating selection of locally and nationally brewed beers. With exciting menu items such as crispy octopus on a hot dog bun, jackfruit meatloaf, and corned duck hash, 28 North brings an innovative and unique dining experience to Melbourne.

Founder, Chris Conneen opened 28 North in February of this year. Chris is also the creative force behind Brevard’s Pizza Gallery & Grill. The name 28 North is a reference to the latitude of the Viera location, right next to Pizza Gallery & Grill. 28 North features a wrap-around patio dining, an open kitchen, and a rustic bar and lounge area with views of The Avenue Viera’s newly-updated Central Park. The custom menu of scratch cuisine and craft cocktails make the new restaurant a stand out in the industry.

“We are proud to bring our delicious dishes and unique menu items to the Melbourne community, and we are even prouder to be named one of the best new restaurants in Florida!” stated Chris Conneen.
