Tampa / St Pete Beach recommendations?

Hi Joan, Thanks for the reply! I have been searching the boards and I found that thread useful. For the Tampa portion of the trip I have narrowed down my top choices to: the Columbian in Ybor City, Mise en place, Laughing Cat, and Berns. We will be in Tampa for 2 nights so I will have to narrow this down further although It would seem from what I have been reading that the Columbian is a must! I like you suggestion of the Maritana Grill at the Don. I just need a few more recommendation for St Pete Beach as well as Breakfast recommendations for both Tampa and St. Pete Beach. As mentioned above I am looking for Southern style breakfast. Thanks again for your reply

Tampa / St Pete Beach recommendations?

Coming from Toronto to Tampa the end of the month to catch a 7 day cruise with my wife and 4 y/o son.

We plan to spend 2 nights in Tampa before departure and 2 nights in St Pete Beach on our return.

I would very much appreciate Dinner and Breakfast recommendations for BOTH cities.

DINNER: Cuisine (in order of preference): Local Specialty, Seafood, American, Steak

BREAKFAST: I am looking for an authentic Southern-style Breakfast !

NEIGHBORHOODS:

TAMPA:
We will be staying at the Marriott Waterside so I was thinking places in Ybor City would be nice or anyplace in between that is accessible on the TECO line (or a short cab ride)

ST PETE BEACH
We will be staying at the Don Cesar so anything close by along the Beach.

recommendations needed for MURRAY HILL and surrounding area.

I will be visiting NYC at Thanksgiving and would very much appreciate recommendations from NYC Chow-hounds for each of the following type of restaurant in Murray Hill or adjoining neighborhoods. I will be staying at the Kitano 66 Park Avenue, At 38th Street.

FRENCH BISTRO
ITALIAN
FUSION

My wife and I will be bringing our 3 1/2 y/o son (who is very well behaved) so restaurants must be family friendly. We are looking for fine dining experiences without the stuffiness.

For French restaurants I was trying to compare the Artisanal Bistro with Les Halles and would be curious to know which of the two are considered better by the local foodies.
