Just when I thought Tampa couldn’t squeeze in another new restaurant opening before the end of 2019, a chef-driven concept makes a major splash. Counter Culture, from renowned local chef Jeannie Pierola who also runs Edison Food + Drink Lab, just recently announced its official opening.
Immaculate design and sensational food
Counter Culture is located at 2909 W Bay to Bay #100, Bayshore Plaza, in the prime Bayshore area of Tampa, Florida. The 3,700-square-foot restaurant was designed by Sandra Chancey of Chancey Design to set the stage for Chef Pierola’s food.
Stop the presses, there’s a freaking wood-fired grill here, too! The open kitchen features a 14’ wood-fired grill and stainless hood, and is lined by comfortable kitchen counter dining. Please deliver us some Neapolitan pizza.
Ample outdoor seating for guests
Counter Culture also features a mixologist bar with garage doors that open onto the Florida patio to create an indoor-outdoor bar that will also serve the full kitchen menu.
It’s beautiful and backed by an impressive history in the industry. Could this be the next great food hub in Tampa?
