Happy New Year!
Even if you're not going with the "New Year, New Me" tradition as everyone else is -- you should venture out and explore the amazing city we live in! From Hernando County down to Sarasota - Tampa host a multitude of fancy and hole in the wall restaurants you should check out for 2019!
Here's my personal list... simple, but SO DELICIOUS!
First on the list is my PERSONAL FAV - and I'm so happy they finally opened up their Westshore location (across the street from International Plaza!). I'm talking about the Lucky Dill Deli!
Their menu is outrageously HUGE, from Breakfast, Soups and Salads, NY Deli subs/wraps, to ITALIAN food... They legit have it all. Oh --did I mention it's all fresh?! I recently took my girlfriend to this place for her first time, and she had the Knuckle Sandwich (pictured)... she says "It was the best sandwich I've ever had" ... so - definitely a great date night place!
DATZ is one of Tampa's most beloved places to eat. It's wide-ranged menu caters to tastebuds of all ages and ranges, you'll be sure to find something you enjoy! I mean.. DO YOU SEE THAT BURGER ABOVE?! Datz has been the most reviewed place on Yelp in all of Tampa Bay,
Wright's Gourmet Cafe is another place you need to check out in Tampa for 2019! This deli/cafe has been a staple in Tampa for decades! If you're starving - this is the place to go, because your personal portion will most likely serve as two meals.
The original Columbia Restaurant, located in the historic Ybor City neighborhood in Tampa, Florida, is the oldest continuously operated restaurant in Florida. Make sure to make a reservation ahead of time. The menu, service, and food are all fantastic!
No, the above photo is NOT photoshopped... it's just from one of Tampa's BEST Pizza places ever! If you've been to downtown Tampa - then you've probably passed by Eddie & Sam's NY PIzza! Buy it by a slice, a whole pizza... or get a GIANT pizza... no matter what your appetite is craving - they will meet your needs and then some! I personally LOVE their buffalo chicken pizza.
