BEST SURPRISINGLY GOOD GROUPER SANDWICH: The Undertow

The beach bar doesn’t have to serve a humungous grouper sandwich. People would flock to the place anyway — for the sunsets, the two open-air bars, the pool tables and the sexy bartenders. But the fact is, chef Joel Kaplan does serve a humungous, made-to-order grouper sandwich — a 10-ouncer with spicy homemade tartar sauce on your choice of bread (we recommend the kaiser roll) for just six bucks. At that price, you’ll still have enough left for a second mango daiquiri. 3850 Gulf Blvd., St. Pete Beach, 727-368-9000.
