The Rialto Theatre Open House

Recently we celebrated the opening of the Rialto Theatre, a great new venue that has opened up in the Tampa Heights area near Downtown Tampa. They have an industrial, historic vibe with a perfect mix of old and new details.


When putting together the menu for the event, we wanted to give a nod to the history of the building and Tampa. We chose to pull from Tampa's Spanish-Sicilian-Southern heritage with re-invented classic dishes to match up with the renovation of the theatre.
