Some friends and I are having a reunion weekend in Tampa next weekend...We are five women in our early thirties and coming from Boston and New York. We're on a bit of a budget (don't want to pay big city prices) but are also not interested in chain-style dining. Meaning: No Cheesecake Factory. No Spaghetti Warehouse. Just good, authentic food and decent prices.
No real dining restrictions except one of us doesn't eat fish...so if there was a good seafood place with other menu items, that would work. I think price range would be anywhere from $15-$25 per person (excluding booze).
