With 2 small children, its not often that we get to go out to dinner anymore. Before kids some of our favorites were Mise en Place for the food and romanticity, Jacksons for the atmosphere, Berns for very, very special occassions and with the kids, we will hit up places like Bonefish, Flamestone in Oldsmar, Z-Grille in St. Pete, and Casa Tina in Dunedin.
We live in Clearwater, and will probably see a movie as well so we can eat anywhere in the Clearwater, St. Pete, Oldmsar, or South or West tampa. The only thing I'd like to stay away from is Cuban/Spanish because we just had that last night for dinner :)
We love steak, wine, and seafood, especially Chilean Sea Bass and it would be nice to have somwhere with a little atmosphere and the ability to have a cocktail before/and/or after dinner.
C'mon BAY AREA FOODIES- HOOK ME UP!
