Psomi Will Bring Tampa The Stuff of Greek Food

October 26, 2019

On Nov. 8, the North Hyde Park neighborhood of Tampa will have a lot of bread, in the form of Psomi, the Greek word for that but in the form of a restaurant by the same name, at  701 N. Howard Ave., right down the street from Cass Street Deli.

There will be bread, of course, as Psomi, said Creative Loafing will offer artisan breads and pastries (as well as tzatziki) made fresh in-house said the review, which added that it will be an upscale, fast-casual joint reminiscent of St. Pete’s Baba with a blue and white decor — Psomi has a few less evil eyes though.

Inside, Psomi will have table and booth seating, with large photos of Greece decorating the walls. The patio has table and couch seating with large stone fixtures complete with a fireplace so Greeks and Hellenophiles and the hungry will feel right at home.

Psomi recently hosted its friends and family dinner, and photos of the coming menu were shared on Instagram featured dishes like grilled octopus, fried calamari, loukoumades (Greek doughnuts) and grape leaves stuffed with beef and rice among other dishes.


LONDON - Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis had a meeting with Greeks of the diaspora while in London on Wednesday, during which he highlighted the options that Greeks living abroad now have to vote in Greek elections from their place of residence, as well as his government's emphasis on reforms.
