  1. CopperFish Seafood Grill & Oyster Bar

    South Tampa : 1502 S Howard Ave., Tampa, 33606

    Gordon Davis and SoHo Hospitality partner Kevin Enderle brought on partners Chas and Kyle Bruck to put together a new concept: craft cocktails like sister restaurant Ciro's, farm-to-table fare like Boca, with a focus on super-fresh, largely local fish grilled simply over hardwood. There'...

  2. Haven

    South Tampa : 2208 W Morrison Ave., Tampa, 33606

    Hours: 5-10 p.m. Mon.-Wed., until 11 p.m. Thur.-Sat., closed Sun.

    A 2015 newcomer set in the old SideBern's location, this Bern's sibling less old-school fancy than Bern's, and less expensive than SideBern's, but no less ambitious than either. It has without a doubt the...

  4. Cafe Dufrain

    Editor's pick

    707 Harbour Post Drive, Tampa, 33602

    Boasting one of Tampa's best views, this Harbour Island bistro is one of downtown's best getaways. Get smart eating from lemongrass soups to diver scallops, risotto, short ribs and salmon with frizzled leeks. Flavors come from the Pacific and the Americas, but the style is Tampa lofty. ...

  5. Mad Dogs & Englishmen

    Editor's pick

    South Tampa : 4115 S MacDill Ave., Tampa, 33611

    Mad Dogs and Englishmen has a sense of humor. Perhaps that explains its longevity. Its new menu sports the old joke: "Two cannibals eating a clown. One says to the other, 'Does this taste funny to you?' " Talking about things tasting funny on a menu? Is this a good idea? Co-ow...

  6. Marchand's Bar & Grill

    Editor's pick

    Downtown St. Petersburg : 501 Fifth Ave. NE, St. Petersburg, 33701

    The Vinoy has undergone a major makeover that includes retooling of Marchand's, showing off the central Vinoy Bar. A small wine cellar room provides an enviably intimate dining space for four. But perhaps the biggest change is the dining concept: One side used to be Marchand's, with a M...

  7. Queens Head

    Editor's pick

    Grand Central District : 2501 Central Ave., St. Petersburg, 33713

    The work of Darren Conner and Paul Smith, Queens Head is an adorable, cheeky and emphatically stylish addition to St. Petersburg's Grand Central district. The small bar-restaurant is a delightful addition, a British pub with a little South Beach glamor and New York club smarts (it's har...

  8. Cigar City Brewpub

    15491 N Dale Mabry Highway, Tampa, 33618

    In what was once a T.G.I. Friday's, Joey Redner has launched his first Cigar City Brewpub, the work of a brilliant team in fine fettle. Superbly designed, it's whimsical and lively with a short, affordable menu that feels like a breath of fresh air. It's gastropub fare with a spin, ...

  9. Castile Restaurant and Rooftop at Hotel Zamora

    3701 Gulf Blvd., St. Pete Beach, 33706

    Right out of the gate, Hotel Zamora, a stylish 50-room boutique, seems to be doing things its own way. It's not on the beach side of Gulf Boulevard, but uses its bayou-side setting to best effect with a ravishing waterside pool and patio (and it's constructing a full rooftop bar and res...

  10. Le Petit Bistro

    Editor's pick

    796 Indian Rocks Road N, Belleair Bluffs, 33770

    Lodge Restaurant & Bar

    Editor's pick

    South Tampa : 516 S Howard Ave., Tampa, 33606

    A ton of failed restaurants have called this address home in the past. But at the Lodge, the fun doesn't seem to be stopping - especially on the menu. Tater tots! Beans 'n' franks! A Twinkie-tiramisu hybrid called the Twinkimisu! A Key Lime Pie martini that smokes like a volcano! Th...

  11. Tapas Garden and Wine Bar

    North Pinellas beaches : 321 Gulf Blvd., Indian Rocks Beach, 33785

    Start off by ordering a pan of the paella, because that’s the star of the menu and you won’t want to leave without trying it. It will be enough to feed a couple of people, but the made-to-order nature of it means it will take a half-hour. No problem, because a couple of choices of t...

  12. The Yard

    4300 Sixth St. S, St. Petersburg, 33705

    At its heart, the Yard is a sports bar, but one with food better than you might expect at a neighborhood place where you can catch the game. If you are expecting ubiquity in ordering fried mozzarella, you’ll be surprised to find a layer of pancetta and a plate dressed with balsamic reduct...

  13. Tap Room at the Hollander Hotel

    Downtown St. Petersburg : 421 Fourth Ave. N, St. Petersburg, 33701

    A thirst in St. Petersburg can be quenched at dozens of purveyors of craft beer. One of the newer ones is the Tap House at the reincarnated Hollander Hotel, a hip boutique hotel, complete with a full-service spa, coffee shop and tap room. With it is a short menu on which everything is under $10...

  14. Fly Bar & Restaurant

    Editor's pick

    Downtown Tampa : 1202 N Franklin St., Tampa, 33602

    The brainchild of Tampa native Leslie Shirah, this bastion of hip has 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 wor...

  15. Grille 54

    Editor's pick

    West Pasco : 10900 State Road 54, Suite #105, New Port Richey, 34655

    It's not Tampa's MacDinton's/South Howard level of mayhem, but it's no small feat to get so many folks in southwest Pasco out on a Saturday night. And what's the draw? Sushi. Oh, and steaks. And Italian food. There's also seafood, raw bar items and a lot of dishes from t...

  16. Slyce Pizza Bar

    North Pinellas beaches : 311 Gulf Blvd., Indian Rocks Beach, 33785

    "Hip" is the word that comes first to mind at Slyce, the down side being that it can be noisy and a little frenetic. As per the pizza, there are some shock-value pies: A Coney Island topped with chili and sliced Sabrett dogs; the super-spicy Sunburn with chilies and hot sausage and a ...

  17. Cooper's Hawk Winery & Restaurant

    International Plaza District : 4110 W Boy Scout Blvd., Tampa, 33607

    Chicago-based Cooper's Hawk Winery and Restaurant opened its first Florida location in Tampa early in 2013. It found the right spot along Boy Scout Boulevard expense-account way. As at many of the restaurants along this stretch, Cooper's Hawk has seared ahi, it has pork belly (in 2013, ...

  18. Urban Brew and BBQ

    Grand Central District : 1939 Central Ave., St. Petersburg, 33701

    Andy Salyards is doing a handful of things in the smoker — brisket, baby-back ribs, pulled pork, chicken — offering them as full plates, with a side and a roll, or as excellent and well-priced sliders. It’s easy to be smitten by a moist, flavorful pile of brisket sliced onto a...

  19. Three Birds Tavern

    Fourth Street Garden District : 1492 Fourth St. N, St. Petersburg, 33704

    In the space that used to be Limey’s, owners Robin and Jack King have created a comfortable, good-times gathering place that even diehard Limey's fans can embrace. The Kings repainted, cleaned up the bar, added a south and north patio (the latter with a cozy fire pit), but the bigger ...
