Best sushi in Tampa?

I'm new to Tampa and am trying to find a great go-to sushi place. So far the only place I've been to is Samuari Blue. While it wasn't terrible, I have kind of gotten tired of it and to be honest I would prefer they invest less energy in the presentation and pretty flourishes on the plate, and put more effort into the food. Also, the last time I ate there my rolls were disappointing--the rice was very chewy, maybe undercooked?

Regardless--I'm looking for a new place with great, fresh sushi. Doesn't have to be fancy. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Suggestions for restaurants in/near Westchase?

Thanks for the response! I have tried 3 out of the above places. I really did not like Stone Chase at all but maybe it was just the item I got on that day. I got a calzone type thing. Not impressed. Today I tried Chico's and liked it a lot. I'm bummed that Catch 23 isn't open for lunch.....I stopped by there a few weeks ago for lunch and was disappointed that it was closed. Any other suggestions?

Suggestions for restaurants in/near Westchase?

Just moved to the area in July and am trying to get a good idea of what the great places are around here. I'm trying to do my research in advance after a disastrous lunch at an Italian restaurant in Westchase. I know there are dozens of good places, but for now, what are the good places in or near Westchase? I'm especially looking for good lunch places. I'm not looking for any type of cuisine in particular--just trying to get a lay of the land.

Thanks in advance!

Delivery in Stamford? Need ideas....I'm hungry!

I want to order in tonight and am looking for a new place to try. I'm thinking Greek or Italian but am open to other ideas. Any suggestions? Looking for someplace with decent prices and great food.

New Asian in Stamford - Bedford St. Malyasian,

Actually, they do deliver. I haven't tried them yet though, am thinking about trying tonight.

GREAT pizza in Stamford?

Thank you, but John the Baker doesn't deliver. I'm looking for a delivery place.

GREAT pizza in Stamford?

Thanks Amanda! I'll give it a shot. I do live downtown.

GREAT pizza in Stamford?

I have been to Remo's.....but they do not deliver and delivery is part of my "requirements". The margherita pizza I had there was really not great.

GREAT pizza in Stamford?

As I said earlier, it's because the term "hot oil pizza" freaks me out. I keep envisioning that there is a pool of oil on top of the pizza and that just doesn't appeal to me. I guess I will check it out due to the repeated recommendations.

GREAT pizza in Stamford?

I've only been living in Stamford for about six months but during that time I have tried no fewer than eight pizza places. I'm still wondering if I'm missing something great. So I'd love to hear from you veteran Stamford Pizza people if there is any fantastic place that I MUST try. Only requirement is that they deliver. I prefer plain cheese pizza but I love good Margherita pizza as well.

These are the ones I've tried, with my response:

Planet Pizza--reliable, open all the time, you can order online, fast delivery, good pizza
Luigi's--ordered from them by mistake. Quite possibly the worst pizza I've had in my life. It arrived COLD and burned. Awful.
Villa Italia--very yummy but thicker crust than I'd like
Athens Pizza--forgettable. Not bad but not great either.
Pellicci's--good, but whatever

So far, I hate to admit it but Planet Pizza is the most reliable for good, hot, on time pizza.

Any gems I'm missing? I've heard RAVES about Colony Pizza but I keep reading about their "hot oil" pizza and the word "oil" is freaking me out.

Best Thai in Stamford, CT?

I've tried Kit's Thai Kitchen, Galangal, and one other place I can't remember the name of. None of them were really great. I was especially disappointed by Kit's Thai Kitchen. Overpriced and totally bland.

Is there any place I'm missing here that has great Thai food?

Thanks in advance.

Great date place in downtown Stamford?

Update: I chose Ocean 211 and I was extremely disappointed. The crab cakes were NOT good--I didn't even finish mine. My ahi tuna was....eh. Wish I'd tried Duo....oh well, there's always next time! Thanks, Jess

Great date place in downtown Stamford?

I'm pretty new to the area and a few of the places that have been recommended are Market and Ocean 211. It's a first date so I'd like a place that is pretty nice. Not worried about cost, just great food, nice atmosphere and not too quiet in case we run out of stuff to talk about! :)

Need good breakfast/brunch place near Stamford

Hi everyone. I did a search for breakfast places in Stamford and didn't come up with many results. I'm looking for a place that is relaxing, not a diner, preferably with lots of healthy options and decent omelets. Any suggestions? Mackenzie's in Greenwich sounds interesting. I'd prefer something right in Stamford but will travel for the right place!
