need Tampa advice for best food

nyperr | Apr 15, 2011 02:17 PM

We will be in Tampa on business from NYC for 3 nights and after looking at many of your posts are trying to decide which to choose. We will be staying at the Hyatt - not the one with Armani's and will have some access to a car but don't want to drive too far..

We like places that use high quality locally sourced ingredients creatively and preferably some local flavor (FLORIDA not Asian or French) Good food is the key - doesn't have to be formal service.

Here are the places that I've gleaned from the posts. Please give your advice.


Armanis (We have great Italian in NY so is this really top notch?)
Middle Grounds on Treasure Island - is it far?
Ocean Prime
The Refinery ?
Bailey's on Davis Islands
Pane Rustica (We have great Italian in NY so is this really top notch?)
Walt's Seasonal Cuisine
Sideberns (sounds like more of a scene than for food)
Guppys on the beach

Ocean Prime
7339 W Sand Lake Rd # 400, Orlando, FL

Walt's Seasonal Cuisine
1140 Main St, Dunedin, FL 34698

2208 W Morrison Ave, Tampa, FL 33606
