Best "foldable" NYC Pizza?

Heading to the city for the weekend, looking for thin crust pizza that's doughy enough to easily fold - nothing crispy. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Pach's Place for eggs benedict near the water. For something really elaborate on a Sunday, Oystercatcher's in Tampa for brunch.

Creative Vegan / Vegetarian in Tampa?

Consciouness Blossoms in Palm Harbor is amazing! Also, Ella's American Folk Art Cafe in Seminole Heights in Tampa has wonderful atmosphere, food and service and caters to vegetarian & meat eaters. Bern's offers great options for a vegetarian: Hello truffle mac & cheese and goat cheese ravioli!

Gourmet Coffee in Orlando?

Perhaps either of the two Whole Foods in Orlando. They probably don't carry these two specialty brands, but may carry other coffees that are fair trade and gourmet.

JJ Gandy's pies are awesome. Their Pumpkin Chiffinon pie and Key Lime pie are great holiday pies.

Where are the good bagels in Tampa?

Clearwater Bagels is the best. Their hours are limited and they often run out of things quickly. A salt bagel with their chive cream cheese is delish.

Korean in Tampa Bay

Soul of Korea is near USF, I think, but I've yet to try it. When I went to Sari One, some time ago, I thought it was wonderful!

Thanksgiving Pies in Tampa

JJ Gandy's Pies is in Palm Harbor, which isn't so convenient but their pies are wonderful! Their Pumpkin Chiffon pie is great for Thanksgiving. www.jjgandys.com/

And last year's holiday pie offerings @ Pane Rustica sounded fantastic.

Organic Green Tea Ice Cream (just happens to be vegan and gluten free)

Looks wonderful! Could I use rice milk in place of soy and stevia in place of agave?

Saturday Lunch Tampa area - Help!

Restaurant BT is wonderful. I had a great lunch experience there recently. Pane Rustica on Macdill is also fantastic for artisanal flatbread pizza and gourmet sandwiches and I think they are open Saturdays for lunch. Byblos, also on Macdill may be open for lunch then as well. I haven't been there but they have a web site with a menu listing and serve Middle Eastern fare.

The demise of ice cream in S. Tampa

There is also Bo's ice cream in Tampa. It was good but not worth going out of the way for it. My fave is SunniBunni Frozen yogurt.

(Strachan's in Dunedin & Palm Harbor are great too as far as the Tampa Bay area )

Looking for local foods in Miami

Robert is Here and Knaus Berry Farm in Homestead are great produce/food spots in Homestead.

Lunch Palm Harbor/Safety Harbor?

Hi Everyone,

Looking for a spot for lunch for a girls' day out. Somewhat near Woodlands.

Any thoughts on 105 North in the Safety Harbor Spa? Or Heather's Place in Safety Harbor? (Tried Green Springs/Lincoln Heights already)

Amarit Thai in Palm Harbor? Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Bern's in tampa

Bern's is an incredible value IMHO. The same caliber of food, service and reputation would cost several times as much in a bigger city, and be stuffier, and have a stricter dress code. Enjoy your meal there!

Frozen yogurt in Tampa?

Sunni Bunni Yogurt is outstanding! Not too tart.

Thanks to you both for your feedback! We'll try it eventually, but not with high expectations.

Ybor City recs

Roma Pizza in Ybor for great New York style pizza! Don't go for the service or ambiance, but for the pies. Also, dining at Columbia during lunch makes it a more affordable choice than dinner.

L'Eden - Tampa

Hey Chowhounders!

Wondering what you all thought of the food and atmosphere during lunchtime at L'Eden in downtown Tampa. Is it the type of place you can get the gals together for lunch like you can at Pane Rustica?

Thanks so much!

Tampa Birthday Lunch

Hi Chowhounders!

Been reading your great posts. Looking for a place for the girls to take a friend to lunch this week in Tampa. Looking the in the SoHo / downtown / Hyde Park / Bayshore Blvd. Area. A Non-chain with a little ambiance. Pane Rustica & Mise en Place are fabulous but we want to try something new. Maybe some Tapas?

Would love to try L'Eden in downtown Tampa - it is nice enough inside to take someone there for their birthday?

thank so much!

Where are the bagels in Tampa Bay!

Clearwater Bagels is the absoulute best! Their cream cheeses are excellent and come in many flavors and the bagels are unsurpassed. They have limited hours (I( think they close somewhere between noon and 2), so call before making a trek there.

Spartaco Trattoria Tampa

I think we're going to go there for Valentine's day and have never been before. What do you recommend on the menu? We're thinking about their pasta.

Also, how dressy is it? To compare with another retaurant, is it as casual as Cafe Alfresco in Dunedin, dressy casual such as Casa Ludavico in Palm Harbor or even dressier?

Thanks!
