Menu Changes at the Venue

I went to The Venue in Clearwater (Just over the bridge on Ulmerton) yesterday with a friend for some drinks and some Tapas.

Tapa-what? The bartender at the outside bar told me they eliminated most of the Tapas items and are trying be more of a steak and chop sort of place (The sushi bar remains unchanged though). While there are a few average appetizers on the menus under tapas, it has mostly been eliminated.

Don't get me wrong, The Venue has never been accused of having food that rises above the ordinary. So the elimination of most of the Tapas menu is more of an inconvenience rather than a tragedy (Its just down my street, so convenient and I like the variety you can get between two or more people with a Tapas style menu).

So if you are headed that direction for any Tapas items you liked before, they may be missing.

  1. I feel bad for that place, when they opened they were jam packed, now it's a ghost town most of the time.

    1. Glad to hear that the sushi menu has been left intact...they do great sushi there.
