Restaurants

Restaurants

Peter Welchers - Real Estate Broker

If you live in Tampa, one thing you will never complain about is the lack of dining options. The diversity of restaurants here is vast, and the quality is superb. For a juicy steak, Bern’s Steak House, Fleming’s, or Iavarone’s can’t be beat. For raw fish, you can’t go wrong with Sushi Alive or Soho Sushi, and for cooked, Oystercatchers. Whether you like Cuban sandwich shops, such as Brocato’s, or French-Vietnamese fusion, Restaurant BT, you will be satisfied with the restaurants here in Tampa.
