Portofino Mediterranean Grill, Clearwater, FL

My husband and I went there, as well. We ordered friend zucchini chips, which actually came out soggy and not crispy. He wouldn't eat more than one bite of them(we took them home and broiled them to give them the crispiness they were missing.) The restaurant was beautifully decorated, but there were hardly any customers in there. It felt like we were on display to the wait staff because they were all staring at us, but when we needed service there was no one around. The chicken marsala came on the largest plate, but when you really looked at it the portion size was average. It came with a potatoes and veggie side, but when those came it was the most bizarre creation of veggies thrown on a plate with a baked potato! Weird. The worst part for us was also the soda refills.... I was charged 3 times for my one soda!!! Absolutely ridiculous when they don't mention it on the menu or the server. The sad thing is that this place is right by our condo and STILL we have no plans to go back.

Looking for a Kentucky Hot Brown in Clearwater/Tampa Bay Area

No, unfortunately they don't have them either. Wow.... I am trying hard to find this, but it doesn't exist here. I'm frustrated someone who had them on special yesterday can't make one today, not on special.

I will check it out... I live in Clearwater, so it sounds worth the try! Thanks for the advice.

Looking for a Kentucky Hot Brown in Clearwater/Tampa Bay Area

Ok, so here is the problem. A local restaurant sent me an email about having a Kentucky Hot Brown special. I called to confirm and found it they would only do it during the week.... it's Saturday. I told my husband who is from Kentucky that I was going to take him to get a hot brown and I have never seen his face light up so much about going out to eat. Now, I do not have a place to take him.

Does anyone know of a spot in the Tampa area that makes a good Kentucky hot brown? I need help! :)
