The food porn Instagram account and restaurant Main Course Tampa, has now launched a Brandon location.

Now called Main Course Brandon, the joint is located at 1608 E. FL-60 in Valrico. The Tampa location is currently closed, but Main Course Brandon is carrying the torch when it comes to flavors with finesse courtesy of chef-owner Ashley Dalrymple, better known as Chef Ai.

The veteran-owned concept hosts a rotating menu with fat plates ranging from fat seafood plates (shrimp, lobster, snow crab) to pasta dishes stacked with shrimp or chicken (or both for a $3 upcharge). Diners can follow the frequently updated social media account or just show up to see what the daily specials entail. Expect them to sell out, as that seems to be a running theme being that Main Course has a cult following. 

The former Main Course Tampa location's Instagram boasts over 34K followers, with the Main Course Brandon account quickly growing with 11.5K followers after only being live for a single day. The restaurant attracts celebrities, artists and public figures like comedian Vena E., Jess Moore (Jess Hilarious), and City Girls' Yung Miami to name a few. 

Hours for the Brandon are 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-midnight Friday-Sunday. Go see what the hype is about.
