My sister is a waitress and just moved to St. Pete. She is looking for a restaurant to work in, preferably upscale, although she not above working in casual dining - mostly she just wants to earn a decent living at a high quality place!
Below I have listed the restaurants I scoured from the boards that seem to be upscale or popular below. Feel free to post comments (or email me comments) on the quality of these restaurants, either from a server's point-of-view or a chowhound's point-of-view. And feel free to suggest something that is not listed below! =)
Most frequently mentioned:
-La Teresita (not upscale)
Listed more than once:
-Island Way Grill
-Front Porch Grill
-Valencia Garden (upscale Cuban or Spanish?)
-Mise En Place
-Samba Room in old Hyde Park is well worth the trip for upscale dining.
-Cafe Creole (in Ybor City)
