Fodor's Review

Opened in 1925, this wonderful restaurant in the posh Renaissance Vinoy Resort has frescoed ceilings and a spectacular view of Tampa Bay. Upscale and special-occasion diners are drawn to Marchand's dynamic menu, which changes often and embraces a farm-to-table approach. You'll always see salmon and a multitude of other seafood options on the menu amid items like wild boar ribs and farm-fresh vegetable potpie. There are also gluten-free and veggie options, such as a squash-and-corn taco. For early birds, the 1925 menu (named for the year the hotel originally opened) offers a four-course meal for just—as you may have guessed—$19.25. Sushi is available Tuesday through Saturday. The wine list is extensive, including a number of by-the-glass selections.
