Columbia Restaurant Review

: This cousin of the landmark Columbia restaurant in Tampa's Ybor City is located strategically on St. Armands Circle where trendy and upscale shops beckon tourists and residents alike. It's actually a little surprising to find a respite of old-world cuisine just feet from the latest Scandinavian designed furniture or the newest fashions. Still, the food is what you'd expect from a Columbia restaurant---choices of seafood and steak with the chicken and yellow rice a signature favorite. The 1905 Salad (so named in honor of the inaugural year) is still prepared tableside.
