Where Tampa Bay - - Where Now -

To the south along the coast from Clear­wa­ter to St. Peters­burg, seafood once again takes cen­ter stage at Mid­dle Grounds Grill (mid­dle­grounds­grill.com) in Trea­sure Is­land, and what a trea­sure it is. Don’t let the ca­sual vibe fool you, though—the food is fresh and de­li­cious.

The din­ing scene in down­town St. Pete is vi­brant, and one of the top spots to en­joy is Park­shore Grill (park­shore­grill.com) with its con­tem­po­rary Amer­i­can menu. Nearby, 400 Beach Seafood & Tap House (400beach­seafood.com) fea­tures “re­laxed coastal cui­sine” for lunch and din­ner, not to men­tion a sump­tu­ous Su­per Sun­day Break­fast Buf­fet and 24 beers on tap.

You may not ex­pect to find a steak house in a 1920s-era man­sion, but that’s just what you’ll find at Ro­coco Steak (ro­co­costeak.com), also in down­town St. Pete. Come hun­gry and leave happy, or make your way back to Beach Drive and have a glass of wine for a night­cap at An­nata Wine Bar (an­nataw­ine.com).

Across the penin­sula on St. Pete Beach, Mar­i­tana Grill (loew­sho­tels.com/ don-ce­sar/din­ing) serves up de­lec­ta­ble seafood dishes, while Ho­tel Zamora’s Castile (castil­erestau­rant.com) of­fers up­scale din­ing in a beau­ti­ful set­ting.
