Ten Rooms (1536 E 7th Ave) is primed to be the newest must-visit food and entertainment destinations in Tampa Bay. The dynamic team steering the ship on this exciting project features Ro Patel, a seasoned Tampa Bay food and beverage connoisseur celebrated for his ventures like Ciro’s Speakeasy and Anise Global Gastro Bar, and Zach Pace, a restaurant operator and sommelier with a track record that speaks volumes.

Pace’s journey includes contributions to two acclaimed San Francisco eateries: Lazy Bear, a prestigious two-Michelin star gem, and Aphotic, where his expertise helped secure a Michelin star and the elusive Green Star—a remarkable feat achieved just three months after its opening.
