OK, all you Tampa hounds -- I'm hoping for a little advice.
I will be in Tampa for about 6 hours between flights in a couple of Saturdays from now. I will not have a car, but I'd like to take a taxi somewhere for lunch and then (ideally) either a walk or lounge around the neighborhood. I am wide open in terms of types of cuisine, but (coming from NYC) the food has to be really excellent -- whether it's the best banh mi or bbq or dim sum or Cuban diner or whatever.
A place right next a beach/park/marina/cool downtown neighborhood would be of special interest, as I will be on foot - but if there is a "must-try" suggestion that is a little more remote, I'll take it.
I've looked through the Tampa suggestions on this board already, but since I don't have a sense of what the neighborhoods are like, it is hard to make a choice.
Thanks in advance for any recommendations for a fun afternoon in Tampa!
