A TASTING OF TAMPA BAY
 
(2013 - Winter Issue)

Writer: SUSAN B. BARNES



Whether you're seeking farm-to-table fare, authentic Spanish dishes, a good old-fashioned grilled steak - or anything in between - the Tamp Bay area has you covered.

Boca Hyde Park and The Refinery in Seminole Heights are both committed to using the freshest seasonal ingredients from the area's local farms and fishermen.  The ambience at Boca and The Refinery may be casual, but the food on the plate is full-on culinary perfection.

For more than 100 years, the Columbia Restaurant in Ybor City has been serving Cuban-inspired Spanish favourites in a fun and inviting atmosphere. Must-orders include the "Original" Cuban Sandwich, the official sandwich of Tampa, and the 1905 Salad, washed down with a glass of sangria. For a real treat, make reservations to watch the nightly Flamenco show.  Ole!

When it comes to steak, Bern's Steak House is known the world over for its cuts of meat.  In fact, Wine Spectator named it the best steak house in the U.S., which may be due in part to its extensive wine collection - the largest in the world.  After dinner, make reservations for the Dessert Room and choose from its nearly 50 selections. 

This is but a small tasting of the flavours the Tampa Bay area has to offer.  It's best to sample it for yourself. 

Bon appetit!
