tampa/ st petersburg late night dining?

i want to find good late night dining spots that serves higher end/interesting stuff. i've been going to cevice which opens till 2, but i'm getting tired of the place.

  1. I enjoy Ceviche from time to time as well, but it is often too crowded and the food can be hit or miss. I work at Cafe Alma, which stays open late, always has a smart crowd and the food is at least a notch above Ceviche. Come in and ask for me and I would be happy to take care of you.

      Hate to disagree but I think Cafe Alma's *appallingly* bad. I'm always astounded when people here say otherwise. The other night I had straight-from-the-fridge hummous, stiff and stale, with dried-out pita; before that, mediocre ceviche and the most tasteless beef carpaccio ever. Boo.

      Agreed that Ceviche's too crowded :-)

        Hey there spigot, sorry you don't like Cafe Alma. I do disagree though...

        What places have you enjoyed? I noticed your thread about bakeries, bbq, etc. Care to go back there and post your findings?

    2. so where does one go for a good late night meal? not just high end. i'm talkin tacos, pho, or anything else when your drunk and you wanna top the night off right.
