Tampa, FL

Bayshore view towards Downtown Tampa

We recently enjoyed visiting Tampa, FL for the week.  Although it rained varying degrees from light sprinkles to raging downpours with thunder and lightening there was also tornado warnings, heavy wind, flooded streets and power outages.

We still managed to go out and enjoy a few restaurants at night and catch up on our visiting.  These photo's are from this visit and previous ones when the weather was beautiful.

One evening we had a fabulous time at Bin 27 Bistro in Hyde Park.  It's a beautiful modern restaurant with wonderful service.  We chose to order from the Tasting Tuesday menu which included a wine pairing with every course that was perfectly matched to complement each dish.  The Lemongrass-Chili Butternut Squash Soup was amazing as was the Chocolate Expresso Tres Leche Cake and the Citrus Beignets with Orange Sherbert.  The Blackened Tilefish was too blackened for our taste so the next time I'd order lightly blackened but the overall dining experience was very special and so was the company. Cheers!
