Last night for my wife's birthday dinner I took her to Sidebern's and we had an unbelievably great experience with the tasting menu and I wanted to share. We really don't eat out much in Tampa because frankly, we're underwhelmed with the mediocrity of the food. And about four years ago I had a NY Times reporter take me to Sidebern's and we had a dissapointing meal that was mentioned in the paper, so I was a bit apprehensive about last night's dinner. It blew us away.
Seriously, every course was done perfect and the wine pairings were great. The service was decent, but since our waitress didn't eat half the things on the menu, she wasn't great at explaining them. However, we kept the menus next to us and it worked out well. The amuse bouche was pretty mediocre but the rest of the meal was great.
Anyway, it is rare that I get on here to rave about a meal, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to talk about the best meal I've had in Tampa this year. In fact, it is on my top 5 of the year. Check it out!
