More in this neighborhood: Downtown Tampa

In the bottom level of the Tampa Convention Center, it has indoor and outdoor seating that looks out on the lovely Riverwalk. Downtown workers can promenade along the wide path before zipping in for an order-at-the-counter salad or sandwich. It's in the vein of Panera, with a short menu of contemporary dishes, from housemade chips with a Maytag blue cheese drizzle and dots of balsamic glaze as a counterpoint to a daily flatbread pizza, which one day was roasted veggies, heavy on the roasted red bell peppers. Sandwich prices are a little steep to compete effectively with other downtown options. Currently lunch only, 11 a.m.-2 p.m.
