Not quite in the geographic area you wanted but not far. All of these are in west Tampa near Raymond James stadium. You can't go wrong with any of them

Good prepared meals in Tampa?

My elderly mother still has a fairly discriminating palate. She recently moved in with us and does not want to cook all the time. Our family eats on a different schedule so she does her own meals a lot of the time. She had lived alone in Delray Beach. If anyone is familiar with that area, she used to love the prepared meals at The Boys on Military Trail. We have tried Dinner Done type places, Land & Sea and Fresh Market. She finds a very limited selection or just doesn't care for the food.

Is there anything else out there? Preferably in North Tampa area but will go further if needed

Can you go to the desert room w/o having dinner? Someone told me you can't so we've never asked .

Best Onion Rings?

Tony Roma's onion ring loaf has been a guilty pleasure of mine for years. Bobby Rubino's are pretty much identical, or used to be. I have not been to Rubinos in a long time.

Good Cuban Food in Miami?

I'll second Versailles in Little Havana from the earlier link posted. It may not be the absolute best in Miami but it is good and the atmosphere is authentic. Go on a Friday or Saturday around 9-10pm for the real experience. Try the Garlic soup.

Anniversary Dinner In Tampa

Also located at the Hyatt is Oyster Catchers. Great bay views and good seafood. I have not been there since they did a high dollar remodel Roy's is another good anniversary location. Yes, they are a chain, but a good one. One of their signature dishes is Macademia nut encrusted Mahi. mmmm'
