A lot has changed in the Bay area over the summer, including new restaurants in the Tampa Bay. So we made a list of what opened this summer. Our friends at Creative Loafing made a handy list of the 20 new restaurants that opened over the summer, but we condensed it to the top 13 places you MUST try!

In Tampa Bay, there’s so many iconic food spots to visit, but over the summer we witnessed a bunch of new restaurants open in Tampa and St. Pete. This makes deciding where to go out in Tampa a little more difficult. What do you try first? Smash burgers from King of the Coop owner Joe Dodd, or spend some relaxing time in Tampa’s first kitten cafe?
