It looks like restaurateur Richard Gonzmart's anticipated new Tampa restaurant Ulele has a firm opening date: Aug. 26.

On Friday afternoon, the restaurant tweeted from @Uleletampa: "The highly anticipated public opening of Ulele will be on Tuesday, Aug. 26, at 5 p.m.! Initially, we will be open only for dinner."

Gonzmart, of the Columbia in Ybor City, has teamed up with Keith Sedita to rehab the Tampa Heights steam-powered pump house that dates to 1902 where Ulele will reside.

The restaurant neighbors the new Water Works Park at 1710 N Highland Ave., near the historic Tampa Armature Works warehouse.

Ulele's cuisine is inspired by early Florida Indians, but also that of later Florida pioneers.
