Moving to Tampa was the best out of the million moves I've made in my life. Set me down in front of a Star Trek movie and I'm content.

The Duck Foie Gras was undoubtedly the best that I have ever been served.

French food is often considered the best in the world, so when you find a restaurant that does it right, you go there as often as your wallet allows. Jon Rector of The Piglet Parade has found a pretty good French place in Chez Colette, a bistro that has changed names several times, but remains a staple of the area. While they stumbled across a few forgetful dishes, the majority of the meal was as delicious as its French origin would suggest it was. Check out Jon’s review and maybe you’ll make the trip to Chez Colette yourself.

The interior is sunny and colorful, if a bit slipshod in the decoration department.

Justin Grant checks out another locals bar, this time in Clearwater. 2 Palms seems like a nice, friendly place, perfect for regulars and visitors alike.  While it may seem a little slapped-together, the people are welcoming and the outdoor vibe is always warm thanks to some outdoor heaters. Check it out next time you’re in Clearwater, and until then, check out Justin’s review. I’m sure it’ll pique your interest.

The Beer Shed started out in the 1940s as a bait shop known for supplying fishermen with free beer. It morphed into a full-time bar in 1960.

If you’re looking for an authentic dive bar you need not look much further than the Alafia River. Well, that is, you’ll probably have to keep looking once you’ve found the Alafia River just because this one is really difficult to find if you don’t know where you’re going. Check out what Justin Grant has to say about this authentic Florida swamp bar with a thriving local patronage. You don’t get much more local than this.

It’s smaller than its next-door counterpart, but the focus is wider, making Wine & Brew a good choice for groups who can’t decide what to drink.

When you’re strollin’ around Dunedin, there are plenty of places to go to grab a drink, but not many that offer tea and coffee. Justin Grant mentions that if Wine and Brew weren’t only open after 7 pm you might think it was a coffee shop.  The bulk of the orders, however, are in the wine category, and, according to Justin. Nestled up right next to House of Beer, Wine and Brew could easily be your next stop on your squad’s night of bar hopping.

Along with fantastic sushi, the menu includes something for everything – Asian noodle soups, dim sum and traditional Asian dishes with a twist.

When you’re at the Hard Rock, sushi might not be what comes to mind, but after you visit Rock n Raw, that’ll change. Megan checked out this place and loved every bite. Check out all the delicious pictures she took and read what she has to say and I’m sure you’ll get a craving for a tuna roll or some salt and pepper shrimp!

So close, but yet so far…

Laura Reiley made a few visits to Pericos in St. Petersburg and she liked a few of the elements of it, but, for the most part, it doesn’t stack up. According to her review in the Tampa Bay Times, there were just a few things wrong that could be fixable, but it doesn’t sound like it’s a place she would recommend for now. If you’re really into Mexican food, maybe you’ll enjoy the food while listening to the mariachi band. Otherwise, it might not be worth the visit. Check out what Laura has to say for yourself.

I felt at ease and comfortable … like being transported back to some of our favorite dining spots in Mexico

It’s easy to get Mexican right. Not so easy to get it perfect. When you get Mexican that’s great, but not too pretentious about it, you hit the sweet spot. When Jon Rector and his bride visited Los Mexicanos, that’s exactly what they found. Delicious food knows no pride. It just is what it is. It doesn’t need your validation. Next time you’re around Gulf Boulevard, check them out. I’m sure you won’t e disappointed.

…the New Banana Boat is almost close enough to be my neighborhood bar; I couldn’t leave it a mystery any longer.

As far as dive bars go, there’s not much better one could say about them than their prices are low. As Justin Grant says about The New Banana Boat, there’s not much to say about them because that, in itself, is their value. The New Banana Boat lives up to the dive bar charm exactly as one might expect. Cheap beer, local charm, and a few regulars to befriend. Check out what Justin has to say about them in his review in the Tampa Bay Times.
