Metro Diner, having already established several locations across Florida, including St. Petersburg, now brings its large portion-sized comfort food options across the bay.
The local diner is slated to open Tuesday (May 29) at 4011 W Kennedy Blvd and will feature everyone’s favorite diner classics made from scratch but with a twist.
Ever since founder and Chef Mark Davoli started the eatery in Jacksonville in 1992, it’s grown into a favorite, and earned the attention of Food Network.
"Guests feel at home when they come to Metro Diner because we welcome them as if they are coming to our own house," Davoli said.
"South Tampa is a tight knit community and we look forward to instilling that same sense of familiarity when our diner opens its doors in the heart of the city."
Another reason guests love it is for its creativity with food.
Traditional dishes like the Chicken and Waffles are served with homemade strawberry butter and a signature sweet and spicy sauce.
Its pork chops come with a spice apple chutney, and its Charleston shrimp and grits is not like your normal shrimp and grits. It has two fried grit cakes infused with cheese, roasted red peppers and Andouille sausage, and topped with shrimp, sausage, onions and bacon.
Most of its dishes are priced under $15 and the diner serves breakfast, lunch and dinner all day from 7 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
On Saturday (May 26) and Sunday (May 27), Metro Diner will host a pre-opening charity event where all proceeds will benefit the Spring of Tampa Bay and National Pediatric Cancer Foundation.
