Malio Iavarone was the consummate restaurateur and showman, his restaurant, Malio's, an iconic dining destination. It closed in 2005. And now it's back, kind of. Owned by Malio's son, Derek and his wife, Jennifer, and with plenty of parental involvement, the new Malio's (in downtown Tampa's 31-story Rivergate Tower) fills a void in a restaurant-impoverished area, especially at lunchtime when it's thick with downtown business folk wheeling and dealing as they indulge in fat steaks and chops.
