Restaurants and kitchen design company to open bay locations

CHANNEL DISTRICT — Two different restaurant-bar concepts separated by a soundproof wall add variety to the Channel District dining and drinking scene. Maloney's Local Irish Pub will open June 23, and the Hideaway lounge will open about a month later, in Grand Central at Kennedy, on the corner of Meridian and Madison streets.

Co-owners Brian Pfeiffer and Todd Wingard also operate Maloney's in Westchase (since 2009) and the Hideaway in Clearwater (since 2010).

"It's hard to find the right place," Pfeiffer said. "We've been looking for a long time."

The restaurants are completely different entities but do share a kitchen and two large bathrooms.

Maloney's will serve Irish fare — shepherd's pie, fish and chips, bangers and mash, and more — "in time to watch the World Cup," Wingard said, looking at a dozen TVs suspended over shamrock green walls and a mahogany-stained bar running the length of the room. The sports pub will offer 32 beers on tap. An overhead rollup wall opens to an outside bar and patio.

Cash out your tab before you slide next door to the Hideaway, an upscale club expected to open by Aug. 1. Sushi chefs will roll fresh favorites as mixologists craft specialty cocktails. Rollup doors access an 80-foot canopy area for outdoor guests

Both restaurants will be open seven days a week at Grand Central at 1120 E Kennedy Blvd. Visit maloneyslocalirishpub.com and thehdwy.com for hours.

TooJay's headed to SunTrust building

What color will the lights blaze atop the SunTrust Financial Center to herald the June 23 opening of TooJay's Restaurant and Deli?

How about corned beef red and dill pickle green?.

The New York-style delicatessen restaurant group tweaked its breakfast and lunch menu to accommodate the small, first-floor office space downtown. Corned beef, pastrami and blintzes still reign, but there will also be a convenient grab-and-go selection and a variety of vegetarian and under 550-calorie items.

That would not include cheesecake, black and white cookies or fudgy chocolate Killer Cake.

Breakfast and lunch will be served on weekdays. Catering downtown office meetings and parties will be a special focus.

The original Tampa location at International Plaza remains open seven days a week.

TooJay's Restaurant and Deli at 401 E Jackson St. will be open 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays. Visit toojays.com or call (813) 284-4102 for more information.

S&W Kitchens opens fifth location

Orlando-based S&W Kitchens, specializing in installing mid-range to high-end kitchens and baths, is opening its fifth location this month in Bayshore Plaza on S MacDill Avenue, just south of Bay to Bay Boulevard.

"With dozens of designers across Florida doing business since 1977, we pride ourselves on staying up-to-date with the latest trends and conveniences," said Jeremy Parcels, one of four designers in the new south Tampa store.

"We handle everything from full-scale home remodels to fresh cabinet and countertop installations to any kind of flooring," Parcels said.

S&W Kitchens at 3125 S MacDill Ave. is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays and by appointment. Visit sandwkitchens.com or call (813) 849-9007 for more information.
