Daily Eats is a cool little diner that just needs a counter to sit at and a bunch of old hairy waitresses to be like something out of a roadtrip movie.
New York, New York Pizza brings quasi-New York style pizza to the Hyde Park area, with a wall of beautiful douche bags and crust worth killing for.
Perhaps the most unique Chinese food I've ever eaten came from Wok 'N Roll. Truly a standout in a sea of mediocre New York style Chinese take Out wannabees.
TC Choy's Asian Bistro provides Hyde Park with high quality Asian cuisine. A classy atmosphere. Diverse menu. Excellent sushi. And bento boxes for the kids.
Renzo's Gourmet Argentine Steakhouse is a halfway decent deli and an INCREDIBLE bakery. Not really a "gourmet steakhouse", per se... but a solid restaurant.
Ribit's BBQ serves late night barbecue, burnt to dry and charred imperfection, and is flanked by some of the douchebaggiest places in Tampa Bay.
