Strawberry restaurant week

Florida Strawberry Growers Association Partners

with Select Tampa Bay Restaurants to Showcase Tasty Ways to Savor Strawberries

Strawberry restaurant weekFans of Florida’s juicy strawberries are encouraged to enjoy this delicious fruit while dining at some of their favorite Tampa Bay restaurants that will be serving menu selections featuring the bright red berries but only for a limited time.

Local restaurants participating in this two week-long promotion will highlight a variety of dishes and drinks made with fresh-from-the-fields strawberries. The strawberry-centric courses can include beverages, appetizers, entrées, side dishes or desserts and will only be available from Jan. 21 – Feb. 3.

Guests dining at select restaurants during Florida Strawberry Restaurant Week can compete for special prizes by taking selfies with the featured dish or beverage, posting their photos on Facebook and Instagram, as well as other social media accounts, and tagging images with #FLStrawberrySelfie2019.

Each post earns points that can add up to some “berry” nice prizes. The diner with the most points wins the following: A VIP weekend for two at the TradeWinds Island Grand Resort ( on St. Pete Beach plus more.

The winner will be notified and presented with awards in February.

“Chefs love to be creative and find new ways to include fresh Florida strawberries into their menus. We are excited to work with these great restaurants to promote our locally grown, seasonally fresh strawberries during Florida Strawberry Restaurant Week,” said Sue Harrell, director of marketing, Florida Strawberry Growers Association (FSGA). Hillsborough County is recognized as the Winter Strawberry Capital of the World and the home of some of the sweetest, reddest and juiciest strawberries around, according to FSGA.

Among the items featured are the following: a Skinny Florida Strawberry cocktail at Splitsville; Charred Tuna with Whipped Potatoes, Spinach and Florida Strawberry Ancho Salsa at Rumfish Grill; New York-style cheesecake with a house-made Florida Strawberry topping as well as a Florida Strawberry Lime Caipiroska cocktail at Terra Gaucha Brazilian Steakhouse; Florida Strawberry Shortcake at Noble Crust and a Strawberry Roasted Almond Vietnamese Salad at Bamboozle Café.
