Tampa, FL 33602
The place to see and be seen in Tampa. This is where the movers and shakers come to hang out. One of my favorite memories actually took place here. I was working in the cavetnous, beautiful central area on a weekday afternoon, when a friendly voice pulled me away from my laptop, “Excuse me, but your tie is askew.” It was the mayor, Bob Buckhorn!
Anyway, it’s a beautiful space, housing 5 or 6 different upscale services specializing in their respective crafts: Buddy Brew Coffee, a tea shop, a home goods store, a book store, an eyeglass shop and the eponymous restaurant.
I love coming here to work or hang out with friends or just to see what’s going on.
