Tampa - New Restaurant Discussion - Rolling Thread (4/13/10)

Ok, I wanna start with Urban Cantina (, which opened in downtown a few weeks ago. It looks like an edgier copy of tijuana flats, but maybe they have some good stuff. Anyone been there yet?

      Where downtown? We took the critter to the new park and were looking for somewhere to eat with him. NO luck. Taps was not the place. I thought there was a new Mexican place, but didn't know where and couldnt' find it.

        Interesting find. Why do they have to go and call it "world class." That makes me instantly adopt a skeptical attitude which I would like to avoid. Someone's got to check it out.

            I read a review somewhere... maybe the Trib. The review made it seem pretty bland and if you get a bland Trib review, that is not a good sign.

              Tried it once and thought it was only ok. The bill seemed high for what we ordered as well. Overall it was in the "probably not going back" category for me.
