Restaurants

The City of Tampa has a history of offering a broad range of cuisines, including Floribbean, Cuban, Spanish, Vietnamese, and Italian. The restaurant options may be just as diverse as the demographics, with establishments spanning from small cafes and bakeries to bistros and farm-to-table eateries.

If you want a delicious, gourmet, five-course meal at student prices, check out the Tutored Chef, run by the Culinary Arts Institute in Tampa. You can enjoy various appetizers, entrées and desserts made by student chefs. The menu changes every season, and the portions may be a bit small, but it's well worth the trip to sample some tasty cuisines such as polenta, shrimp, scallops, and sautéed spinach.

The simple Saigon Deli Café always has a crowd of diners because of the fresh, delicious authentic food. Visitors to the Tampa area pack this place, making this Vietnamese establishment a must-visit. It serves an amazing pork banh mi stuffed with fillings. Other favorites include the shrimp and pork summer rolls, a meatball and rare beef dish called pho and pork with vermicelli.

When you go to J. Alexander's, the abundance of wood molding and trim of the decor is reminiscent of older steakhouses. The restaurant has a great menu chock-full of many wonderful choices. The spinach con queso dip with chips makes for a rich, tasty appetizer. For an entrée, consider the prime rib with side cups of au jus and horseradish sauce or the diner-favorite mac-n-cheese. Some of the popular lighter dishes include the grilled Scottish salmon and the Asian ahi tuna salad.

Rick’s on the River provides a casual, pleasant and friendly place with both interior and exterior seating. With its location on the river, the bar and grill can be as easily accessed by boaters as it is by land-dwellers. It’s a great venue for sports fans, with a good number of TVs around the bar and on the walls, or to listen to live music while resting on the patio along the Hillsborough River, enjoying the scenery, wildlife and views of downtown Tampa. It also has a nice variety of foods ranging from salads and burgers to oysters and fish sandwiches. It serves the food and drinks in plastic baskets, cups and ware suitable for water or land.

The indoor and outdoor space of the Hyde Park Café creates a nice spacious atmosphere for mingling, dancing or just having a good time hanging out. The establishment caters to a diverse crowd and has two rooms, with different music playing in each. Depending on the night, the genre of music differs but commonly includes hip-hop, Latin and house music. Hyde Park Café occasionally attracts celebrity DJs and really gets crowded on the weekends.

The International Plaza and Bay Street make up a multilevel shopping venue anchored by a variety of department stores, high-end stores, specialty shops and carts. The open-air café setting on Bay Street features bars, cafes and upscale restaurants. After the mall closes for business, Bay Street becomes a popular attraction for the 30-something professional crowd attracted to a couple of nightspots in the area.

Westshore Plaza may be small and old, but it still provides a good place to shop. The mall has a good balance of the typical brand-name stores offering luxury brands familiar to most shoppers. It also has a surprisingly diverse choice of restaurant options and a movie theatre.

The Frolic Exchange carries a range of vintage women’s and men's clothing and antique items. The shop also sells recycled clothes, hand-designed clothing (by the shop's proprietor), novelties and accessories. It accepts trade-ins of gently worn clothes and new items and provides consignment services.
