St. Pete's The Mill scored the Golden Spoon Awards' Robert W. Tolf honor.


Twenty local restaurants, whose cuisines range from gastropub fare to modern Italian, snagged honors from Florida Trend's annual Golden Spoon Awards. Recognizing dining spots throughout the state, the magazine's Tampa Bay Hall of Fame winners remained the same as last year, while the other two categories — Golden Spoons and Best New — experienced some change.

Best New mentions went to South Tampa's Haven, Dulcet in New Port Richey and St. Petersburg's Noble Crust and The Mill. The Mill and chef Ted Dorsey's New Southern eats also secured the Robert W. Tolf Award for Best New Restaurant, which commemorates the magazine's former restaurant editor.

As Pearl in the Grove of Dade City and Tampa's Pelagia Trattoria, Pane Rustica Bakery & Café and Edison: Food + Drink Lab rounded out this year's Golden Spoons for Pasco and Hillsborough counties, Pinellas saw wins through downtown St. Pete's Z Grille and Parkshore Grill. Plus, Clearwater Beach's Caretta on the Gulf, Indian Shores' Salt Rock Grill and Rusty's Bistro in Clearwater.
