2 ethnic restaurants now offer beer, wine

SOUTH TAMPA -- Two ethnic restaurants are adding beer and wine to their menus.

The Bamboo Flute and Cafe Cohiba got the go-ahead from the City Council on Dec. 19 to sell the beverages with their meals.

The Bamboo Flute, at 2307 S Dale Mabry Highway across from Plant High School, serves Vietnamese cuisine in a modern, upscale setting.

Cafe Cohiba sells Cuban dishes at 3801 S Manhattan Ave. near Euclid Avenue.

Recipes requested for community cookbook

TAMPA -- Have a favorite recipe you want to share with neighbors?

Submit it to the city of Tampa. The neighborhood liaison's office is soliciting recipes to feature in a community cookbook.

Organizers hope to include tastes from across the city, from rice and beans in Ybor City to fish in Port Tampa.

Proceeds from the cookbooks, which will cost about $10 each, will help send community representatives to the annual Florida Neighborhoods Conference held next year in Sarasota.

The city is seeking corporate donations to cover the printing costs of the cookbooks, due out some time this spring.

Send recipes to Liana Lopez, c/o Neighborhood Liaison's Office, 306 E Jackson St., Unit 145-D, Tampa, Fl 33602, or fax them to (813) 274-8959.
