TAMPA — Chef-owner Eric Cornwell is back on West Shore Boulevard, returning to the restaurant he sold in 2011, now rebranded as Westshore Sandwich & Salad. The 12-seat spot sits between Bay to Bay and El Prado boulevards.
"It's a long story," said Cornwell, who took back the small place he ran as Real Dill Deli from 2008 until selling it in 2011.
Back by popular demand: roast turkey and chicken salad sandwiches, says the University of Tampa Class of 2000 grad. Roast beef and corned beef sandwiches are other favorites.
Or create your own. "Made to order any way you like," Cornwell said.
"We're casual . . . healthy . . . maybe a bit indulgent," he said, noting soups, meats and desserts are prepared in-house. Breakfast is served all day. Catering and delivery are available.
Westshore Sandwich & Salad, 3343 S West Shore Blvd., is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday; visit westshoresands.com or (813) 443-2128.
