Best Place to Eat at the Bar

Restaurant BT

The bar in this oasis of chic serenity offers the same precise food, same delicious (if faintly medicinal) martinis, even the same elegant service as the dining room — watch, for instance, the graceful way the barkeep rolls out the bamboo place mats — but the atmosphere is still casual enough for a light meal and a drink. And while you’re sitting there you can make a study of the photos behind the bar — portraits of BT friends and staffers captured in mid-sip by co-owner/ photographer Norman Batley, who’s just as good at shooting people as he is at serving them. 1633 W. Snow Ave. Tampa, 813-831-9254.
