Top 10 Fun Restaurants in Florida
Dining out in Florida can be a truly fun and entertaining experience, so we thought you shouldn't miss out on these great restaurants that offer some unique and relaxing experiences. Start with a complete culinary experience at Roy's Tampa, were you get to visit a lively exhibition kitchen and partake in the culinary vision of acclaimed chef Roy. Keep those hip standards up and visit the sexy Sushi Samba Dromo, where they have given the concept of aphrodisiacs a whole new twist.
Are you more of an artsy type? There's a place for you, too, on the Florida restaurant map - actually, there's more, but the best are Dexter's of Thornton Park (where you can purchase all the art you see) and the Blue Heaven Restaurant, with delightful Caribbean flavours. However, no visit to Florida is complete without some fresh seafood satisfaction, so make sure you don't miss the Duo Restaurant & Bar and the 15th Street Fisheries. read more about Top 10 Fun Restaurants in Florida...
