Question About The Columbia in Ybor

I had posted a few days ago re: where to take my boyfriend for his 30th birthday dinner in Tampa, and after a ton of wonderful suggestions he's decided that since Mise en Place is not open on Mondays that he'd like to go to the Columbia. I've made reservations for the show as well as I figure it may be worth a watch, but I'm wondering is there anything on the menu that we MUST order? I've seen a ton of posts about the salad, but what about entrees? Thanks!

  1. just fyi....if you're a AAA member, i think you can see the show for free (up to 4 people)....if i remember reading my last AAA magazine correctly.

    1. Thanks! :) I am a AAA member! :)

      1. The Red Snapper -- I prefer the Adelita stye, but they have several variations -- and the Cuban roast pork are my favorites.

        1. The 1905 salad. It's the only thing I *love* there and consistently hear good things about from others.

          Have fun!

          1. I agree with Bob about the 1905 salad. When I go to Columbia, I order the orginial 1905 salad as my entree and a pitcher of Sangria Cava (yes, I share it!) Everything else I've tried on the menu is pretty mediocre, although a Cuban relative recently visiting from California thought the chicken croquets were very good.
