The FishHawk area has become well known for its rare combination of valuable real estate, natural beauty, modern amenities and small town charm. It’s a lifestyle that many area residents have grown to love and along with a growing number of residents, comes a growing number of appetites.

That potential has caught the eye of several local restaurants that will be calling FishHawk home in the coming months with new locations. While the community already boasts several dining choices, the new options should be a welcomed addition for anyone living in or traveling to FishHawk for breakfast, lunch, dinner or a drink.

Catch Twenty Three is a Tampa-based seafood restaurant that will be setting up business in Park Square, taking over the location that was previously the Park Square Cellar. Featuring indoor and outdoor dining, Catch Twenty Three will bring its Latin and Caribbean influences to FishHawk diners in a casual, upscale setting.

Visitors to Catch Twenty Three can expect premium quality food, a simplistic preparation approach and appealing presentations for the restaurant’s menu of acclaimed options.

With a current location in the heart of Westchase, Catch Twenty Three is ready to provide its well-received mix of pecan wood-grilled entrees, lounge area with happy hour specials, island music, and cool breezes to FishHawk for any resident to enjoy.

A few doors down, also in Park Square, FishHawk residents and guests hungry for burgers, wings, salads, and more can stop into the soon-to-be-open Cherry’s Bar and Grill.

Located in the former Bonzai Sushi restaurant location, overlooking the fun-filled Park Square splash area, this location has previously been home to several other neighborhood-loved businesses.

Cherry’s Bar and Grill is a Brandon favorite, known throughout the area since 1994 for a relaxed atmosphere, great food, cold draft beer, and plenty of televisions for any big game. With a company tagline like, “Eat, drink, and be Cherry,” it’ll be hard for residents to find much not to like about this local mainstay.

For those rise-and-shiners who are looking for a hot meal and a cup of coffee to kickstart their day, FishHawk will soon be home to a local breakfast, brunch, and lunch restaurant, The Scrambled Egg. Located at 15282 FishHawk Blvd., The Scrambled Egg is bringing a brand new look and feel to a location many residents already know as a breakfast spot.

Featuring a menu filled with traditional breakfast favorites, health-conscious items, unique brunch options, and sandwiches and more for lunch, The Scrambled Egg is sure to provide FishHawk residents and guests with memorable early morning or midday experience. Plus, the restaurant promises to go above and beyond to ensure each customer is happy with every meal.

“The concept is for us to be able to provide ‘breakfast your way,’” said The Scrambled Egg’s Jennifer Adamo. “We want customers to be able to get just what they want, so we will be happy to accommodate any substitutions. Ultimately, we want you to be able to create the place you want.”
