My Favorite places to eat in Pinellas County
Looking for alternatives too though you never know there could be better places to eat I just haven't found them yet.
Los Mariachis 2
9100 Ulmerton Rd,
Largo, FL 33771-3821
Blowfish Sushi Bar (May be Jimmy's Sushi now but same guy making the rolls)
5731 Seminole Blvd, #1,
Seminole, FL 33772
Well those are the 2 places outside of establishment places.
Drinking is fun at Limey's Pub in st Pete 14th ave & 4th St N
I agree with Andy about Cristino's and laboheme about Kiku and Walt's Seasonal Cuisine. To those I add the following:
Mykono's in Tarpon Springs for scrumptous Greek.
Pierogi Grill in Clearwater for Polish dishes that would make my grandmother green with envy.
Guppy's on Indian Rocks Beach. Love their daily seafood specials, especially the Sunset Trio (tastings of three seafood specials of the evening).
Savannah in St. Pete for upscale Southern comfort food.
Umberto's in Dunedin for the best damn lasagna I've ever tasted.
Casa Tina in Dunedin for "Fresh Mex".
La Cabana del Tio in Clearwater for the best tacos north of Hidalgo.
Pho Quoyen - Vietnamese
Hook's - Sushi
Skyway Jack's - Breafast
Chicago Grill - Italian Beef, et al
Smokin Out - BBQ
Cristino's and Sardo's - Pizza
ABC Chinese Seafood - name says it all
Frida's Cafe and Bakery - again, it's in the name
The Knish Place at the Saturday Morning Market - I don't remember what the real name is, but they taste just like my grandmother's. Their brisket knishes incorporates my grandmother's brisket and mashed potatoes into one bite.
The Table in downtown St. Pete has the best shortribs I've ever had and a very imaginative menu. Kiku Sushi in Clearwater Beach has some of the best sushi, as does (surprise!) Takara at The Venue--it's the only place in Tampa Bay I've found that has real wasabi instead of the reconstituted stuff you see everywhere else. My favorite new Vietnamese place is Jade Garden in Pinellas Park--their shaking beef is easily the equal of the Slanted Door's version in San Francisco (and their prices can't be beat--nothing on the menu is over $13-$15 with most items well under that.) Bellini's in Dunedin has some of the best homeade pasta around and Walt's Seasonal Cuisine in Dunedin has the best shrimp saganaki, served with crusty bread so you can get every last drop of the sauce's garlicky goodness. ABC Seafood is a good Chinese choice (when I'm feeling too lazy to cross the bridge to Yummy House). One of my all-time favorites is Ceviche downtown--great food, great atmosphere, great Flamenco bar downstairs for dancing after dinner--but the last time I was there, the waiter was so rude that it will probably be a while until I go back again. Finally, you can't beat an El Cap burger and ice cold beer on your way back from the beach.
