  1. Iavarone's Steak House & Grill

    Editor's pick

    3617 W Humphrey St., Tampa, 33614

    What makes Iavarone’s endure is its palpable sense of history. Carmine and Frances Iavarone chucked their grocery business and started Carmine Restaurant in Tampa in 1948. Their kids carried on, opening Malio’s Restaurant and Lounge at S Dale Mabry and Azeele in 1969, Carmine’...

  2. 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. ...

  3. 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...

  4. Marchand's Bar & Grill

    Editor's pick

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

    The central Vinoy Bar shows off a small wine cellar room that provides an enviably intimate dining space for four, with a seafood focus, and dishes that reflect a stylish and loosely Mediterranean sensibility with saucing and garniture.

    The bar scene: It feels like som...

  5. Peg's Cantina & Brew Pub

    Editor's pick

    Gulfport : 3038 Beach Blvd. S, Gulfport, 33707

    Notice first the crazy-fabulous beer list: an array of Belgian ales and lambics, as well as all those American microbrews with the adolescent names (Butthead bock, anyone?). During the week, the menu is healthy, homey Mexican; on the weekend, they crank up the pizza oven and turn out unfussy, s...

  6. 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. The Living Room

    Editor's pick

    Dunedin : 487 Main St., Dunedin, 34698

    Sarah Johnson wants people to hang out in the Living Room, and Dunedin residents have responded favorably. The affordable small-plate menu has been embraced for its novelty and vegetarian friendliness. A plate of snappy haricots verts is perfectly paired with almonds and shallots in a classic b...

  9. Aqua Bar & Grille

    Editor's pick

    Rocky Point : 7627 W Courtney Campbell Parkway, Tampa, 33607

    What was Aquaknox at the Westin Tampa Bay was rechristened Aqua Bar & Grille in recently when parent company E-Brands was sold to Tavistock. Chef Matt Mangone unveiled a new menu with dishes like yellowfin tuna tartare, a lovely plate with daikon and pickled chiles and a swoosh of avocado m...

  10. BellaBrava

    Editor's pick

    Downtown St. Petersburg : 204 Beach Drive NE, St. Petersburg, 33701

    With its location along Beach Drive, it offers a hip yet affordable contemporary Italian menu that leans heavily on wood-fired pizzas (note especially the one with the fried egg on top) and boldly flavored and rustic pastas. Sidewalk seating expands the seating options, and a lively bar keep it...

  11. Mekenita Mexican Grille

    Editor's pick

    Lutz : 17623 N Dale Mabry Highway, Lutz, 33548

    Rand Packer, the celebrated former chef at Roy's in Tampa, chucked the fancy world of Hawaiian-style misoyaki butterfish for something new and different, aiming to fill a gap in the culinary landscape near his home in Lutz. It's a funky and affordable outpost of regional Mexican cuisine...

  12. Bern's Steak House

    Editor's pick

    South Tampa : 1208 S Howard Ave., Tampa, 33606

    Naysayers can grouse, but there's no denying the fine meat and one of the world's best and cheapest wine lists. You can drink back through 20 years in Spanish, Italians, Rhones and zins for $75 or less. Lighten up and relax; just exploring the menu's new additions takes time. Desser...

  13. 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...

  14. Grille 54

    Editor's pick

    West Pasco : 10900 State Road 54, 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...

  15. Chez Colette's French Bistro

    Editor's pick

    796 Indian Rocks Road N, Belleair Bluffs, 33770

    Formerly Le Petit Bistro, the same owners owners kept their same menu and chef, but changed the name at the beginning of 2015.

  16. 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...

  17. J. Alexander's Restaurant

    Editor's pick

    South Tampa : 913 N Dale Mabry Highway, Tampa, 33609

    A great spot for a business lunch or a totally reliable date-night destination, J. Alexander's is part of a collection of restaurants (started in Nashville) offering upscale dining in a relaxed atmosphere. Think of it as a little like a Bonefish, but with less fish and more steaks and chick...

  18. Neptune Lounge

    Editor's pick

    Tarpon Springs : 13 S Safford Ave., Tarpon Springs, 34689

    Beloved by young Pinellas punks for its all-ages shows, Neptune combines live music with bicycling, thanks to its bike shop next door. But after hours, it's the top place for the youths of Tarpon to chill out, shoot pool, crash in the lounge and thrash in the pit. Beer only, but considering...

  19. Abbey Road

    Editor's pick

    Tyrone : 974 58th St. N, St. Petersburg, 33710

    There is feisty energy and rock 'n' roll all around you: the memorabilia and personal touches are everywhere. Beatles pictures, Howling Wolf and Janis Joplin concert posters are everywhere, and a wall dedicated to boxing champions. Full liquor bar and clean taps; Bollocks, Guinness, Boddington's,...

  20. Osceola Tavern

    Editor's pick

    East Pasco : 13941 Seventh St., Dade City, 33525

    The Osceola Tavern has only been around since 1999, but the building it's in has been a Dade City fixture since the 1890s, and was a saloon at least as far back as 1910. Classic rock jukeboxes, live music on weekends and a whole mess of folks who don't feel like heading to Hillsborough for a good ti...
