Popular Tampa dining spots Ulele and Oxford Exchange were named among OpenTable’s latest "100 Best Restaurants in America for a Big Night Out” list.
Curators sifted through more than 12 million verified diner reviews of over 30,000 U.S. restaurants collected between March 1, 2018 and February 28, 2019 to see who made the cut. The list, released Tuesday, considers the menu and bar items, atmosphere and location of each restaurant that make each choice uniquely suited to the perfect night out.
"Whether your ideal night out is at a bustling bar or a hot spot to see and be seen, you can count on any of these restaurants for a night of fun," said Chief Dining Officer at OpenTable Caroline Potter.
Coincidentally, both restaurants also landed on OpenTable’s previous ranking of “Best Brunch Restaurants in America.”
Ulele’s Native American-inspired cuisine has earned the Tampa riverwalk locale 4.7 out of five stars, while Oxford Exchange’s simple presentation of seasonal, locally sourced and organic ingredients resulted in a 4.8 star rating among reviewers at OpenTable.
