This is the second part of my friend Stan Garfield’s restaurant log for Tampa Florida with recommendations. Stan is a frequent contributor to the food picks on this blog. Stan has a cool job. He is the Communities Evangelist for Deloitte Global Consulting Knowledge Management. Stan also organized the SIKM Leaders Community that recently obtained its 300th member.
Stan provided his meal and his code works like this for those that are rated: * - recommended, ! - highly recommended, % - avoid like the plague. There are a lot of reasons to go to Tampa here. I like his menu selections as there are a lot of Southern and Latin dishes. Yesterday I posted part One covering August and most of September.
