Boasting one of Tampa's best views, this Harbour Island bistro is one of downtown's best getaways. Get smart eating from lemongrass soups to diver scallops, risotto, short ribs and salmon with frizzled leeks. Flavors come from the Pacific and the Americas, but the style is Tampa lofty. If you pull up in a boat, you'll enjoy free boat docking while dining. With its lunch service from 11:30 to 3 p.m., it's a great spot for a business confab. The bar scene: Not so much a raucous bar as a laid-back place to relax with friends and conversation. Come as you are casual, or dressy for that special date night. And with a climate-controlled patio, you'll be dazzled by the view of the downtown Tampa skyline as you gaze over the Seddon Channel.
