Top 50 Restaurants of Tampa Bay for 2018 | Food

A prediction: The next time Zagat or Food & Wine publishes a list of the country’s best food destinations, Tampa Bay will be there. Charleston, S.C.; Seattle; Denver; and Richmond, Va., have had their day in the sun, and for good reason, but the stars have aligned for us and we are ready for our closeup.

What makes a great food city or region? It’s food at every price point that is fearless and fresh ‘ street food, mom-and-pop ethnic spots, fine dining and at every level in between; it’s dishes that reveal a new, even defiant take, without ever losing sight of the national dialogue about what’s current. It’s a place that showcases its indigenous dishes and culinary history, celebrates its farms and seasonal ingredients, and yet is not mired in ‘this is the way we do it because this is the way it has always been done.’ It’s food that honors tradition but values creativity more. It’s food that comforts but also has the freedom to surprise.

Ray Sorensen Jr. shows off part of his extensive Lionel layout with seven trains, buildings and other time-honored equipment.

A Pinellas Park toy train dealer who also refurbishes vintage equipment warned that some toy trains sold on and off the Internet this holiday season are fraudulent knockoffs or built from counterfeit parts.

Some early Lionel sets purported to be 60 or 70 years old are in fact modern equipment with electronic circuitry rather than mechanical components.

Ray Sorensen Jr., one of few toy train repair experts in the United States, said the Internet has spawned a cottage industry of fraudulent engines, train cars and accessories.
