New spot in South Tampa- "Wimauma" is up and running

Former Knife & Co Chef Gary Moran and his wife have opened Wimauma on South Macdill in the space formerly occupied by Delizie (just south of Mad Dogs & Englishmen). Contemporary Florida Seafood is the theme, the menu is solid, and the prices are pretty excellent. Went with a group of friends a couple nights ago, tried probably 2/3rds of the menu, everything ranged from good to great. 7 people splitting dishes with beers (and wine for the lady) - just over $100.

I should note that it's ladies night every night until NYE, so ladies get free wine or draft beer each night until then! They're oak-smoking a number of their own meats and veggies, and they've got an adjacent plot of land out back where they're growing some herbs and such. Also they're using an awesome but well hidden farm in South Tampa (near Interbay and 2nd) for local free range eggs, honey, mustard greens, etc.

Our table's favorites were the Disco Fries, the Oyster Bacon Pan Stew, and the Fried Oysters with Guacamole, Cilantro, and Smoked Tomato Jam. Menu pic attached.
