  1. You'll do better on the Fl. Board. That said:
    St. Pete:
    Ted Peters for smoked mullet
    Red Mesa for SW - not the usual smothered in cheese, fresh & creative offerings
    Gioia Italian Deli for the best eggplant parm sandwich. Everything else is great too!
    Tampa:
    Wrights Gourmet for great sandwiches
    Las Margarita's for Cuban but skip the salad, it's not worth bothering with

      1. re: Tee

        Yes, it is always at the top of my "must eat" list when I'm in that area!
        I was recently given a modest smoker and was speaking with my fish guy about mullet varieties this week. Hope to come up with a passable recipe to hold me over between trips!
