Celebrate Cuban Cuisine

(NAPSA) - Tampa's cuisine reflects its location and heritage with local specialties like fresh seafood and Cuban fare. But the king of all Tampa eats is the Cuban sandwich, which the Columbia Restaurant has been serving since its days as a lunch spot for Ybor City's cigar factory workers. This year, the restaurant celebrates 100 years of fine Spanish/Cuban cuisine.
