Dining Options in Tampa?
I'm a San Francisco Hound who will be in Tampa on business in two weeks. I'm looking for local dinner recommendations with ambiance. I'm open to all prices ranges and cuisines (except Japanese). Any thoughts on where to go? Where do I have to eat before leaving Tampa?
Thanks in advance.
Unique to Tampa is Bern's steak house....absolutely unequaled of anything even in NYC or any of the top chains. One of top wine lists in the world. Great side dishes, and you can even go vegetarian or fish but the steak is super.
A must go for me in no particular order includes:
Bern's(Steaks) - Howard Avenue/SOHO
Oystercatchers(Seafood) - Grande Hyatt/Westshore
Laughing Cat(Italian) - Ybor City
Columbia(Spanish) - Ybor City
Armani's(Italian-upscale) - Grande Hyatt/Westshore
Bernini(Italian) - Ybor City
Arcos Iris(Cuban-very casual) - Columbus Ave(West Tampa)
Ceviche(Spanish-Tapas) - Howard Ave/SOHO
Charleys(Steaks) - Cypress Ave/Westshore
Collanade(Seafood-food ok, view is excellent) - Bayshore Blvd
Acropolis Tavernera(Greek)-Ybor City
