Four Green Fields Wins Bid for Curtis Hixon Park Restaurant Space


After much anticipation and speculation, Four Green Fields has been announced as the winning bid for restaurant space in Curtis Hixon Park. The request for proposals was sent out in May of 2017. Tampa council members narrowed the field down to seven potential contenders soon after.

Four Green Fields bested proposals from Columbia Restaurant Group, Polycreative, and Burton Holdings, among others.

 “For over 25 years, Four Green Fields has been a tried and true staple in Tampa and their vision for the park seamlessly integrates with our busy event schedule while providing a much needed additional food options.

– Mayor Bob Buckhorn

Authentic Irish recipes on the waterfront 

The restaurant plans to make expert use of the 2,600 SF waterfront space that faces the great lawn of Curtis Hixon Park. Renderings show ample shaded outdoor seating, along with a full walkup raw bar.

The one-of-a-kind Irish Pub has a menu that’s become legendary in South Tampa — 205 West Platt Street, to be exact. If you’ve never been, we recommend you visit soon and savor their Reuben Rolls — a gearu goile featuring two egg rolls stuffed with freshly sliced corned beef, sauerkraut and cabbage; served with spicy thousand island sauce.

Pub spuds and savory roast beef 

Pile on some pub spuds to pair with your craft brew — fresh-cut potato chips piled high, dusted with a special seasoning blend and served with spicy ranch sauce. If you want a sandwich that would make Dagwood’s jaw drop, sink your teeth into the Roast Beef sandwich. The simple mix of medium rare roast beef, creamy horse radish sauce and onion straws offers the kind of hearty flavor punch that will leave your tastebuds roaring for days.

An official opening timeline has yet to be set. Follow Four Green Fields on their website and Facebook page for updates.
