Well - I just arrived for my convention starting tomorrow. And I realize (or so it seems) that there are NO restaurants within walking distance except for the ones in the surrounding hotels. Is this so? Of the restaurants I'm stuck with - what are you recommendations? I know there's the trolley to Channelside and Ybor city, but that's tough to do when you only have an hour for lunch.
Although on the subject of dinner - what are people's favorites in Channelside and Ybor? We're a bunch of foodies and love good (but not necessarily expensive) food. Also, the folks I'm with are real wine lovers if that makes a difference.
