    Editor's pick

    South Tampa : 4424 W Kennedy Blvd. # B, Tampa, 33609

    Harold Seltzer, co-founder and former president of the Sam Seltzer's Steakhouse chain, saw a gem called the Floridian. It is a Treasure Island old-timer founded by the Dilar family, distinguished by its long record of winning the title of best Cuban sandwich in the area. He licensed t...

  2. 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...

  3. Thai Island

    Davis Islands : 210 E Davis Blvd., Tampa, 33606

    Thai Island has the sweet charm of a beloved neighborhood place. It's not fancy, the decor is simple and homespun, the service is as personal as it gets (if it's not Clay McElmurray, it's his wife, co-owner Penn Karach making suggestions and zipping over a tray — Karach's ...

  4. Ozona Blue Grilling Co.

    Palm Harbor : 125 Orange St N, Palm Harbor, 34683

    Ozona Blue, in the crook of Smith Bayou at Home Port Marina, just adjacent to the Pinellas Trail, also has a swimming pool and hot tub to entertain diners tired of watching boats bob in the marina. There is also live music and a wide, tented terrace that seems to get s...

  7. Stone Soup Co.

    Ybor City : 1517 Seventh Ave., Tampa, 33605

    Each day, Ben Goldberg serves a half-dozen soups from his rotating roster that he makes from scratch, each with his own take on a classic. A favorite is the French onion, a bowlful of sweet caramelized onions in a rich broth. Sandwiches and salads get the same freshly-put-together treatment. Lu...

  8. Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.

    North Pinellas beaches : 185 Boardwalk Place W, Madeira Beach, 33708

    While the shrimp are tasty and Gump-obilia decor fun, the biggest draw is the boisterous, whoop-it-up shenanigans of the staff. It's a multi-page menu, but many items recur in different combinations. Firm white mahi mahi gets a batter-dipping and just the right amount of time in the fryer b...

  9. Grille One Sixteen (South Tampa)

    612 N Dale Mabry Highway, Tampa, 33609

    Terence Terenzi and partner Tom Schelldorf did the same very smart thing they did with their flagship restaurant of the same name in Carrollwood: They hired Angel del Monte of Alfonso Architects to do the design. It is drop-dead hip, super Miami-glammy. It is chock-full of white leather and sle...

  12. Ricky P's Orleans Bistro

    1113 Central Ave., St. Petersburg, 33705

    One foot in front of the other, that's how Rick Parsons has built his business. He started with a stall at the Saturday Morning Market in St. Petersburg — jambalaya and other NoLa lovelies — then leased a small space vacated by In Your Belly Deli on Fourth Street N. The menu exp...
