Best Dinner and a Movie: Tampa Theatre & Bizou

Best Dinner and a Movie

Tampa’s always had a great downtown movie palace — the incomparable Tampa Theatre — but for a long time we didn’t have anyplace close by to argue about the movie afterwards over late-night dinner and cocktails. Lately, that’s begun to change with places like past BOTB winner Anise. But the best option is a new one: the bar at Bizou Brasserie in Le Meridien Hotel. Just around the block from the theater, Bizou has the quiet chic and late hours of a classic hotel bar, plus the food and the cocktails are terrific — the perfect backdrop for a debate over the relative merits of Wes Anderson vs. Wes Craven.
