  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!
    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!
