My sisters and I are meeting in Tampa next week (from CA, IL and Wisc.). The purpose of the trip is to surprise my parents in Beverly Hills for their 50th anniversary, but the day we arrive is my sister's birthday. It's been a rough year for her battling breast cancer, but now it's over and we want to celebrate.
Any recommendations on where we should eat? We tend to shy away from chains, really like good food, probably fairly Floridian in flavor. A little fun atmosphere would be good, but we're old (well, my sisters are, not me!) and we have to hit the road early in the morning, so nothing crazy. The sisters from the Midwest would probably love a tropical atmosphere/view.
We are staying just where the C Campbell Causeway and the Bayside Bridge meet. We're not adverse to a little travel for dinner, but not too much as I'll have a long day's travel to get to Tampa.
