Terence Terenzi and partner Tom Schelldorf did the same very smart thing they did with their flagship restaurant of the same name in Carrollwood: They hired Angel del Monte of Alfonso Architects to do the design. It is drop-dead hip, super Miami-glammy. It is chock-full of white leather and sleek lighting (but dark as a crypt, with lighted menus because so few people read Braille these days). Tampa's professional athletes and the beautiful people that flit around them haven't found the new Grille One Sixteen yet. And despite the setting, dishes aren't edgy or high-concept. Bryan Gallagher, brought from the original location where he was co-chef, oversees a menu that seems mostly familiar: a few steaks, a fancy burger, glazed wild salmon, diver sea scallops.
