Where

If you have time make reservations at the Ybor location and enjoy some of the best spanish food in all of Tampa and a show of amazing dancers in the main room. Well known for their Sangria and even more well known for their food… The 1905 Salad is a must – tossed and prepared tableside its a perfect mix. Main course you have lots of options from tapas to full entrees, but pick a Paella. It will take a bit longer to get to your table but worth the wait and honestly not a bad carbload pre-race. If you don’t have time for a full sit down experience stop by the Tampa History Center located right near Channelside. Get the Cuban Sandwich and sit outside on the channel and watch ships come in and out of port. Tampa is well known for Cuban Sandwiches and the Columbia Cafe makes a great one.
