CARROLLWOOD’S NEIGHBORHOOD TAVERN

With its open kitchen, communal tables in the bar, flat-screen plasma TVs and Chicago-style brick walls, Marlow’s Tavern is the contemporary version of the classic neighborhood tavern. The restaurant opened earlier this year in Carrollwood’s Village Center. Try the Black and Blue Burger with gorgonzola cheese and apple wood-smoked bacon.

AUTHENTIC GERMAN RESTAURANT

Downtown St. Petersburg is now home to an authentic German restaurant, beer hall and biergarten designed after the legendary Hofbräuhaus in Munich. Look for classic Bavarian sausage dishes, as well as specialties such as Schweinebraten, a pot roast made with dark beer sauce, potato and breaded dumpling. Hofbräuhaus’ beer is imported directly from Munich and crafted using original recipes handed down over the past 400 years.
