A few months ago, I received an invitation to come check out the changes made at Kurdis Grill in Downtown Tampa. We finally got around to check it out last week and I will be the first to say, this meal blew us away. There were multiple times during dinner that we both sat speechless and wide-eyed and at one point, my husband stated "I think this is what it must feel like to be a judge on Top Chef". Yes, it was that good.
Kurdis is a small restaurant located on the bottom floor of Skypoint who offers a unique fusion of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine. Their bar offers a nice wine and craft beer. Since the location is so small, everything is fresh and brought in daily. They try to source as much local product as possible. Chef Fred came out to say hi and brought us a few small plates to start off our meal. The first was Sauteed shrimp basted in butter and thyme with asiago polenta and marinated tomato broth. The flavors in this bite went on and on. I cannot explain it, other than perfection.
Valentines Day dinner there. Kurdis is offering a 5 course meal for $75 a person. After our dining experience and seeing the menu, there was no question. Plus, I know others have had equal experiences to ours - my friends at Never Have I Ever Tampa had an incredible dining expereince which you can read about here.
