need Tampa advice for best food

We will be in Tampa on business from NYC for 3 nights and after looking at many of your posts are trying to decide which to choose. We will be staying at the Hyatt - not the one with Armani's and will have some access to a car but don't want to drive too far..

We like places that use high quality locally sourced ingredients creatively and preferably some local flavor (FLORIDA not Asian or French) Good food is the key - doesn't have to be formal service.

Here are the places that I've gleaned from the posts. Please give your advice.

Thanks

Armanis (We have great Italian in NY so is this really top notch?)
Oystercatchers
Middle Grounds on Treasure Island - is it far?
Starfish
Ocean Prime
The Refinery ?
Bailey's on Davis Islands
Pane Rustica (We have great Italian in NY so is this really top notch?)
Walt's Seasonal Cuisine
Sideberns (sounds like more of a scene than for food)
Guppys on the beach
