Having searched the Yvor reviews, perhaps I should dine near my hotel: the Hyatt downtown. Any suggestions?
Some great spots downtown are Spain on Tampa Street; there is an excellent Thai place on Franklin Ave next to Tampa Theater; Fly Bar and Grill also on Franklin Ave, excellent small plates, great atmosphere; Jackson's Bistro on Harbour Island-excellent Sushi. Hattricks is a lively sports place with great sandwhichs. Eddie and Sams has some of the best Pizza in Tampa.
In Ybor-check Acropolis for Greek, Bellini's for Italian, Samarai Blue for Sushi.
In Channelside- check Grille 29, great steaks and chops, nice view; Stumps Supper Club for BBQ and Southern style.
Mis en Place - Just out of downtown on Kennedy. One of the top restuarants in the Tampa Bay area. A short cab ride.
Ceviche Tapas and Restuarant - Also just out of downtown on Bayshore. A short cab ride.
Spain Restuarant and Tapas
Highly recommend at "Spain" restaurant.
Especially, weekend has live flamenco music & dance.
