One night in Tampa...
Heading to the Tampa area for the first time next weekend, and need to know what’s the one restaurant I shouldn’t leave Tampa without trying. Staying by the airport, but have no issue driving.
No preference on cuisine, and don’t really have a budget in mind. Thanks in advance!
We still need more. What's your fave? Where are you from? What can't you get back home? Do you want Steak? Fine dining? Seafood? Something creative?
Bern's would be the best fine dining/steak (since Savant is now closed), Pane Rustica is my favorite all around creative and consistently delicious restaurant, Datz is a fun spot for sandwiches and a good beer, there are dozens of good places but we need to be pointed in the right direction first.
Other than some of the Spanish restaurants, Tampa is known worldwide for Bern's on South Howard. Prime dry aged steaks, best wine list in the world (yes, seriously) everything done to perfection. If you can get in at this late date, you should
I live in Orlando now, but from Philly. Been doing some reading, and was able to score a reservation for 9pm on Saturday at Bern's, so I'm going to go for it.
While I love steak, I don't ever really go to steak houses when I go out. But given all the raving reviews, I thought this would be a good time to check one out (I've been to them before, but not in the last 2 yrs).
How does the dessert room work? After we're done our meal, we just request to go up to the dessert room? Other than obviously the steaks, is there anything on the menu I should leave without trying?
