Favorite place for a power lunch:
Fresh Kitchen. Their delicious, guilt-free bowls (smothered in their Holy Kale sauce, of course) fuel me for the rest of the day.
Favorite place for a special family occasion:
Bern’s Steak House. The atmosphere alone makes any occasion special. I love their dessert room!
Best place to watch a Buccaneers game with friends:
Brick House Tavern + Tap. Super fans know that away games are best spent at Brick House. Great food, super fan-friendly and close by to the excitement!
Favorite local boutique:
Print Farm Paper Company. They have the coolest, wittiest hand-lettered cards.
Favorite waterfront restaurant:
Hula Bay Club. They easily have the best view, sushi and live reggae bands in the Bay.
Favorite place for authentic Cuban food:
Arco-Iris. Their entire menu gives me life, but the Chinese Cuban Fried Rice is out of this world.
Favorite weekend brunch spot:
Datz. I always change it up here, so pretty much anything you order is a win. My favorite item is their Coffee & Donuts cocktail.
Hidden gem restaurant:
Sunday’s Deli. I don’t know anyone who has finished an entire Sunday’s sub in one sitting. My favorite is their Singapore Street Vendor sandwich.
Favorite place to sit with my coffee drink of choice:
The Bunker. I love to people watch with a latte with tons of cinnamon.
Favorite dive bar:
The Mermaid Tavern. They have the best lineup of local and craft beers. Don’t leave without grabbing a plate of their truffle fries.
Epic Boxing and Fitness. They have awesome trainers and a killer cycling-boxing hybrid workout.
The Dalí Museum in St. Pete. You could spend a whole day experiencing their permanent collection and their featured exhibits.
Favorite local attraction:
Busch Gardens. There’s nothing like a good adrenaline rush – it’s basically my yoga.
Favorite beach restaurant:
Frenchy’s Rockaway Grill. I love that you can walk up from the beach just as you are.
Favorite Bay-area beach:
Redington Beach. You’ll see half of Tampa there in early July. It’s definitely a local favorite, and it’s only 45 minutes from home.
