Tampa’s food scene is on fire, according to That’s So Tampa and the fine folks over at WalletHub. Two of the top restaurants in Tampa are Counter Culture, situated just off of Bayshore Boulevard, and Willa’s. Both restaurants now offer weekday brunch, and we couldn’t be happier.
Counter Culture is an award-winning restaurant located at 2909 W Bay to Bay Blvd Suite 100. The restaurant is Chef Pierola’s modern homage to classic counter dining and its barstool kinship between diners and the kitchen. Counter Culture offers elevated kitchen bar dining, an open air mixologist bar, a dreamy Florida patio, and Bay views.
