One of Tampa's top special-occasion and I-need-to-clinch-this-deal restaurants, Armani's has undergone major renovations and has seen new faces in the kitchen in recent years, but some of the traditions at the top of the Grand Hyatt remain unchanged: the antipasto offerings still have an almost cult following. At the long bar that contains dozens of Italophile dreams (marinated eggplant, velvety roasted peppers), you point and the nice lady loads up your plate. If you don't go the antipasti route, a la carte items are equally worthwhile: from an absolute knockout parsnip soup to a delicate fillet of sea bass in a porcini crust paired with a seafood potato cake atop a seafood cream sauce dotted with parsley oil.
