We're sorry to hear that the Kapok Tree restaurant has closed. As Ron says, it was a sight to see and a one of the kind experience.

As we said in our post, it probably seated about 1000 during the time we were living in Tampa and had extensive gardens with fountains and statues plus 30 foot ceilings in all the public spaces. It kind of reminded us of the Ringling museum center court in Sarasota for any of you that have seen that.

We looked it up on the internet and it is now a music store. <img src='style_emoticons//ph34r.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ph34r.gif’ /> All we can say is it must be a heck of a music store. <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />

One thing Florida doesn't lack is good restaurants, though. Some of our favorite places to eat were the Cuban delis, sandwich shops and restaurants in Ebor city (in Tampa). Seemed like there was a family owned deli or bakery on every corner. Don especially love the baked potatoes stuffed with crab meat. <img src='style_emoticons//tongue.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’tongue.gif’ /> (and the cuban sandwiches from the Silver Grill in Ebor City).
