Popular food magazine Food & Wine put Tampa, Florida on its list of top food destinations to visit in 2019 at number 11 out of 33 in a major win for the Lightning capital. Tampa beat out San Diego, Las Vegas, Memphis, and Portland in the list…to name a few.
The excitement over our new food halls at Armature Works and Sparkman Wharf seems to have much to do with all the press as well as Rooster and The Till. One interesting inclusion on the listing is King State Coffee which has yet to open its doors (although many local shops sell their coffee).
Check out my list of coffee shops to visit in Tampa.
Hopefully this attention on Tampa means that people will take a deep-dive into the local food scene we have here as well. Time to get writing.
