For decades, Tampa's downtown has lagged behind St. Petersburg's in vibrancy. The good news: that is about to change. Given recent investments and commitments made by visionary investors, Tampa's downtown scene is growing in prestige and prominence -with fresh hospitality concepts such as Armature Works, Franklin Manor, The Hall, Ulele, and the newly opened Osteria, helmed by celebrity chef Fabio Viviani and the Nocturnal Hospitality Group. Having said that, this growth is only scratching the surface of Tampa's potential. So the NHG, along with like-minded restaurateurs, is attempting to up the ante even further with plans to open two more bar-centric restaurants on Franklin Street within a year's time.
