Mardi Gras is 2/17 this year. Ash Wednesday is 2/18. Your dates are wrong.
Thank you for this post!! It's amazing how many charge some high prices on corkage fees. For $5-$10 sounds fair but some are $15 and up, I don't see that as an opportunity to try a new restaurant. I'm glad to see there are some Italian restaurants that don't charge a corkage fee. Those will probably be my first choice as I am Italian myself.
Wholly Smokes on North Armenia is worth a mention. as well as Ice Cream's turkey legs on north 22nd I believe.
who sells maize ice cream?
Here are some places that have a NO CORKAGE CHARGE policy:
Ocean Prime; Kona Grill; Trattoria Pasquale Italian, & Brio Italian
Here are some others with their charge. Call to verify.
Flemings- $20.00 ; Roys- $20.00 ; Michael's 717 South- $16.00 ;Malio's - $25.00
Capital Grille - $25.00 ; Charley's Steak $15.00 ; Texas de Brazil- $20.00 ; Oyster Catchers - $20.00 ; Chart House $20.00; Seasons 52 - $15.00; Jacksons - $10.00;
Our favorite is Flemings for Steaks, but reservations suggested, especially in March (Spring Training, etc.)
Missing Links has a typo...........
Great article! Thank you!
Agree, Saigon Deli, the real one, not the other one across the street.
I love Saigon Deli on Dale Mabry next to La Quinta! It's awesome.
saigon deli is the best one!
Hey SydWillis, Beirut Cafe is in St. Petersburg and I highly recommend it. As for not including more places, we tried to focus on areas you may not consider for BYOB. If you hear of any good St. Petersburg BYOB, please let me know. I often update dining guides with additional locations since we are limited on space.
nothing in stpete wow that's lame as hell
I read that my favorite restaurant, Vintage on Fifth in Crystal River, is serving BBQ Corned Beef. Think I am going there tonight!
Saigon Deli, Tan Phat, Little Saigon, Ddrinkz... Banh Mi powerhouses in Tampa. CL has a St. Pete slant sometimes...
Thanks for the info Justin! Adding that to the list now! Can you recommend a dish or two?
Just curious how you left the best Viet restaurant in the bay area off this list...Saigon Deli. The rest of these places pale in comparison.
My indoctrination to Vietnamese food came at the FIRST spot to house Ben Thanh in the KMart shopping center on the corner of 30th Ave N and 34th St. I was so happy to learn that they had reopened on 62nd Ave N a few years later.
Pop n Sons, thats where its at, right off 275 (N Dale Mabry) easily accesible from all the strip clubs and dance venues. Everything on the menu is southern comfort. Chicken and Waffles with Bacon!!! Oh MYYYYYY!!!!!
What about Patch's Place on Bay to bay and Bayshore?!? Such a delicious dive (though Pinkys will always have my heart)....
drive in movie theatres
various soho dives
