Best Of 2008


If a restaurant doesn’t have a chardonnay on a wine list in this town, they’re just pleadin’ for a beatin’, but manly Acropolis doesn’t care: We’re Greek, dammit, so we’re pouring Greek wines. And only Greek wines. Conveniently labeled from sweet to dry, the foreign grapes are embarrassingly difficult to pronounce but the staff can help you drink your way through this tongue-twisting territory. Bonus: On a Friday or Saturday night, plant yourself at the bar, order a glass of tasty makedonikos and gawk at the gyrating belly dancers. 1833 Seventh Ave., Ybor City,, 813-242-4545;14947 Bruce B Downs Blvd., Tampa, FL 33613, 813-971-1787,
