Tampa is ready to welcome a new high-end steakhouse experience with the arrival of The H. The Tampa version of Orlando’s popular steakhouse is planned for 1504 S Howard Ave., in the parcel of land that most recently housed seafood restaurant CopperFish. Earlier this month, the steakhouse’s parent company, H And H Food Services, submitted renderings and development plans to the city.
The plans depict the demolition of CopperFish’s previous building as part of The H’s development, but the original parking lot and a small house adjacent to the restaurant will remain. According to documents submitted to the City of Tampa’s permitting website, Tampa’s newest steakhouse will open out of a 7,961 square-foot space, and also plans for a 1,053 square-foot outdoor patio with an 185 person occupancy.
Since The H has only recently filed its construction and design plans, it’s unsure when the high-end restaurant will open its doors in Hyde Park. However, diners can expect an exquisite culinary experience once it does open. The steakhouse’s flagship restaurant in Orlando is known for its variety of meats–from dry-aged ribeye, NY strips and racks of lamb to kebabs, Japanese wagyu and filet mignon—in addition to a spread of seafood-based dishes, pastas and caviar service. Appetizers include small plates like baked bone marrow, octopus carpaccio, burrata with confit tomatoes, grilled calamari and a variety of salads.
The opening date for The H Steakhouse in Hyde Park may still be up in the air; however Tampa residents can look forward to this exciting new dining experience coming soon!
“In order to deliver the best experience to you in our upscale, sophisticated environment, appropriate dress is required after 4pm,” The H states on its website. “We reserve the right to refuse entry and service at The H, including but not limited to guests who do not adhere to our dress-code guidelines.”
