Which RNC hotels are near the best Tampa Bay restaurants? We'll tell you

Republican National Convention delegates are going to need more than a steady diet of politics to sustain them through the August convention in Tampa.

Sure, comfy hotel beds and proximity to the convention center are important, but so is decent food and a fun place to raise a glass to the political process.

So of the 36 host hotels assigned to delegations earlier this week, which are likely to yield the best culinary experiences? Which showcase the best Florida has to offer, preferably in settings that make shameless use of soft sand and Gulf of Mexico views?

Times Food Critic Laura Reiley has the scoop.
