Great Christmas Dinner in Downtown Tampa?

I would try Malio's first b/c its right next to your hotel. I would stay away from pretty much anything in Channelside...except Gallaghers...which is a nice steakhouse and may be open for Christmas.

Need recommendation in Tampa

Malio's Prime Steakhouse is good and its litterally right across the street from your hotel. It can get a bit loud inside but they have outside dining and with the weather being so much cooler I bet it would be lovely this time of year.

Again, I love BTs in Hyde Park. I think its hugely underrated.

I'm also a big fan of the new Taps Wine and Beer bar down the street. Its one of those places where you can buy a "card" and taste test wine by the sip, half glass or full glass. They have some nice appetizers to go as well.

Just moved to Tampa-- recommend some restaurants

I am still a big fan of BTs in Hyde of those little tampa places we almost forget we have sometimes. They make a fablous martini, the food is always great and I love the clear tea cups where the tea "blossoms" for you ,

I also love Mi Pueblo off of Spruce. and MacDill..the most amazing cubans and breakfast sandwhichs for around 3 or 4 bucks.

The Pinlk Flamingo on Davis Island is my favorite for breakfast.
