Restaurant BT to move from Tampa's Old Hyde Park Village

After countering an impending eviction for unpaid rent with a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing, Restaurant BT plans to close at Old Hyde Park Village in Tampa by the end of the month. Chef and owner B.T. Nguyen-Batley is downsizing from a large 200-seat room to a 16-table location at 2507 S MacDill Ave. that once housed Rita Carlino's Cafe and Catering. "This will be completely different," said Nguyen-Batley, "New menu, new design, new philosophy." But it will still reflect the classic French-Vietnamese cuisine she dished up at BT for 23 years. After her business plummeted during the recession, she feuded with landlord Vornado Realty Trust over her wish to move to a smaller storefront.
