Are you having a hard time keeping up with all of the new bars and restaurants opening in Tampa? So were we! We kept hearing about all of the things coming to Tampa in 2023 but was hard to keep track of each grand opening. We’ve rounded up the 7 most anticipated restaurants that opened in Tampa in 2023. From fancy dining to grab-and-go options, there are so many new things to try in Tampa Bay. We can’t wait to see what else opens up this year.

Because each of these places are new to the area, it’s very likely that they’ll be slammed when you go to visit. That’s why we always recommend making a reservation. If you’ve been to one or all of these places already, you’re ahead of the game! Let us know your favorite or what you’re most excited to try on social media!

There’s still so many things in the works for Tampa. We’re still excited for Predalina’s grand opening this summer along with a new karaoke bar in Tampa. Hopefully the new Yard House will be finished before the next hockey season. We’ve been dying for a replacement for the old Ferg’s and we think Yard House will be the perfect place to pregame before any Lightning game. We got our inspiration for this list from Creative Loafing. They have a list of 20 new restaurants that opened in Tampa this year, we just added a few of our own favorites. Check out their list here.

Here are 7 new restaurants that opened in Tampa this year

  • Boulon Brasserie

    The most obvious addition to Tampa is Boulon Brasserie. This new high-dining French concept restaurant is the new go-to date night spot. It’s the perfect place to celebrate an anniversary or huge milestone.

  • Melting Pot Social

    Melting Pot Social, or MeltSO is one of the newest additions to Downtown Tampa. This location opened up in the heart of the Tampa Riverwalk. Think exactly like the Melting Pot concept, but more laid back. Their menu will consist of customizable cheese and chocolate fondue, flatbreads, and even burgers. They’ll have weekday brunch starting Tuesday, May 23, and weekend brunch starting Saturday, May 27.

  • Cane & Barrel

    Cane & Barrel is the newest rooftop bar that opened across the bridge in St. Pete. This Cuban-inspired cocktail and tapas menu will keep having you come back for more! They also just started a new boozy brunch available every Saturday and Sunday!

    The newest healthy option in Tampa! Make your own bowls or try one of their specialty creations! They also have smoothies and acai bowls.
