THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Big City Tavern Restaurant Review

: Big City Tavern is actually located in a small city---Tampa's Latin Quarter. The tavern occupies the former ballroom of the historic Centro Espanol, once a center of social life in old Ybor City. The well-worn but preserved parquet floors have been enhanced by glass lamps and a huge bar hung with mirrors. The limited menu offers a variety of options, from tapas to sandwiches---and some creativity. One of the local favorites is the sweet chili crab stuffed with salmon, topped with wasabi mustard and served with jasmine rice and ginger brown butter. Grilled rib-eye is accompanied by Yukon Gold potatoes, mixed vegetables and a bordelaise sauce. Also look for a selection of wines by the glass and daily specials. This establishment is ideally located for folks touring Ybor City and looking at the quarter's history.
