Tasty Grub to Satisfy Your Late-Night Cravings

Feb 18th 2011 8:02AM / by Nanette Wiser

You've been partying, and a Wendy's bacon cheeseburger, Village Inn pie, or a Grand Slam at Denny's isn't going to satiate your inner tiger. If you must be fed after 10pm, check out these grazing gardens for comfort food and tapas, and maybe a little last-minute flirt action.

Ceviche: At Ceviche, wash down your late night hot and cold tapas with white or red sangria pitchers. There's grilled shrimp, asparagus, olives, manchego cheese, garlic potatoes and so much more.
1502 S. Howard Ave.; 813-250-0203
10 Beach Drive, downtown St. Petersburg; 727-209-2302
2930 Gulf to Bay Blvd., Clearwater; 727-799-3082

The Deck Pizza and Pub: Open till 3am on Fridays and Saturdays, you can soak up the spirits with garlic-ey cheese bread, chicken Jack cheese quesadillas, Philly cheesesteak or meatball subs at The Deck Pizza and Pub. There's also calzones, stromboli, and some of the best pizza in Tampa Bay by the slice or pie, especially the white pizza or barbecue chicken.
2202 W. Platt St.; 813-250-1525

Walter's Press Box Sports Emporium: Walter's Press Box Sports Emporium offers five big screens (23 total TVs) and a great celebrity spotting local bar. This "real guys don't eat quiche" eatery serves appetizers, burgers, hoagies, sandwiches wraps and wings after 11pm, and steak and pizzas until then. Share the love, especially the starters (nachos supreme, homemade fried potato chips slathered in melted cheese, mozzarella cheese sticks, hearty chili, stuffed poppers, blackened shrimp).
222 S. Dale Mabry Hwy.; 813-3528

Samurai Blue: You can sup till midnight (Wednesday and Thursday) or 1am (Friday and Saturday) while sipping chilled sake martinis at Samurai Blue. Hot starters include blue crab Rangoon, hamachi-kama, deep fried calamari with ponzu, dim sum shumai, or grilled chicken yakitori. Cool your palate with cubed tuna sashimi, with spicy sesame and chiles, marinated squid salad or seafood ceviche. Or dive right into the entrees, a luscious mix of surf (steamed ginger salmon) and turf (samurai ribeye steak with a shiitake demi-glaze). The sushi, sashimi and rolls are among the best in town, especially the Love or Emperor rolls.
1600 E. 8th Ave., Ybor City; 813-242-6688
