The brainchild of Tampa native Leslie Shirah, this bastion of hip has since gained a devoted following among Tampa foodies and revelers. Shirah honed the concept during a 15-year stint in San Francisco. And the concept is this: an all-day menu until late, late; a share-it-with-friends approach to world-beat small plates; suave cocktails; a little live music; and a minimalist-hip decor. It's a nightspot to rival any of those in Tampa Bay's entertainment districts, a restaurant that goes toe-to-toe with the best in SoHo. Its chef Fred Quinones is what has enabled it to stay a beacon downtown nearly as sparkly and inviting as the Tampa Theatre marquee down the street.

The bar scene: The rooftop bar is smallish, but offers a great view of the Tampa skyline. The beer selection is outstanding, with choices ranging from Delirium Tremens to Lost Coast Great White to Titan India Pale Ale. Just be mindful if you have a couple that those steps back downstairs are waiting. The deck is also available for private parties.
