Sunny Side-Up fills niche, Ultimate Bodywork covers therapy, Cry Baby Café opens

DOWNTOWN TAMPA — Four of his favorite things were missing from the downtown Tampa food scene, said newcomer Chuck Goldstein, who opened Sunny Side-Up this week to fill that perceived culinary gap.

The longtime Memphis caterer sold his business, moved to the Channel District and with his wife and co-chef Marci began exploring restaurants in their new city. Their research resulted in a tiny, take-out restaurant in the former Duckweed grocery mart around the corner from Tampa Theatre.

The chalkboard menu will change daily but the couple's mainstays are:

• Southern made-from-scratch breakfast.

• Gourmet mac and cheese, including bacon truffle oil and Cajun kicker.

• Soup, such as wild mushroom or beef chili, all made by Marci.

• Gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, gruyere to sharp cheddar.

"I wanted a dive, small and eclectic, to go back to where we began," said Chuck, who quickly volunteered for civic projects with downtown nonprofits and neighborhood activities.

Catering is available on weekends.

Sunny Side-Up, 305 E Polk St. is open 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. Call (813) 221-9800.

Massage muscles into Palma Ceia

Recover, repair, rehab . . . three R's of sports massage therapy and wellness are offered at Ultimate Bodywork in Amore Plaza on Henderson Boulevard. Massage therapist Nelson Cacciatore, vice president of the Florida State Massage Therapy Association, partnered with local entrepreneur Seth Garber to open the clinic in November.

"Not fluff and buff or an oil rub," said Cacciatore, who also provides chair massages at Whole Foods Markets in both South Tampa and Carrrollwood.

"You have to apply specific techniques done for the right reasons to get real results."

In addition to sports massage of the muscles and joints, other services include less intense therapeutic massage, Structural Energetic Therapy (SET) for cranial/structural integration and myofascial/stretching to improve range of motion and reduce pain. Kinesio athletic taping, designed to mimic the tissue of the human body, is also available.

Members start at $55 for an hour a month. There are five private massage rooms at the clinic.

The first 50 guests at the March 1 grand opening (2 to 6 p.m.) receive prizes.

Ultimate Bodywork, 4255 Henderson Blvd., is open 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and by appointment Sunday Visit ultimatebody work.com or call (813) 304-2013.

Baguettes with a water view

Fresh baked pastries, gourmet sandwiches and organic coffee come with a waterfront view at Cry Baby Café, opening Sunday on Harbour Island.

Andrew Bonnemort, who also owns Café DuFrain directly across the street, borrowed the name from his mother, who had considered opening a restaurant at a Cry Baby Ranch.

Breakfast grabbers will find hot baguettes and flaky croissants to munch on the way to work. Lunch is healthy and quick or you can sit a bit with a Birdy Lou chicken salad croissant or Billy Bob club roasted turkey baguette.

Sweetwater Organic Coffee, roasted in Gainesville, is freshly brewed all day or sold packaged as Cry Baby Cafe Private Label.

The Cry Baby Café, 710 Harbour Post Drive, will be open 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, check facebook.com/CryBabyCafe or (813) 443-4956.
