This Ultimate Burger Will Make Your Mouth Water

Engine No9 started as a little bar on the corner of 1st Ave North & 9th St North in Sept 2012.  

From the beginning we have strived to produce an excellent product and within less than one year Jason Esposito had brought Engine No. 9 up from a little unknown stop, to the Engine that could. Engine has over 65 different kinds of beer in a bottle and some on tap. Engine also has a good variety of wines from Diabolo to Cakebread. 

Our motto is pretty much “Prime Burgers.”and that’s what you get. Engine is a sports bar with TVs at every table and probably the premier destination in Tampa Bay Area to watch hockey. (Owners father and uncle are Tony & Phil Esposito who are both in the hockey hall of fame & founders of the Tampa Bay Lightning .)

Owner Jason Esposito is a certified Executive Chef and has worked at some of the best hotels & resorts in the South and the menu lends towards his Cajun/Creole  style of cooking. 

In December 2014, Jason opened a sister restaurant, Engine Rose, on the corner of 29th Street and Central Avenue at the west end of the now booming Grand Central District.

 

We do not take reservations. All seating is first come, first serve. 
Each of our tables in the dining area can seat up to 5 guests. 
Unfortunately parties larger than 5 will have to split up between 2 tables(depending on availability). 
Due to limited space we can not push tables together or move them at all.
While we are more than happy to welcome anyone as a guest, 
be aware that we do not have a kids menu or high chairs.
Must be 21 to sit in bar area, including high tops.
Being a sports bar it can get loud, especially during hockey games.

The Tiny Town In Florida That’s The Next Pizza Capital Of The World

There are plenty of awesome things a town can be famous for, like its landmarks, attractions or natural wonders, but sometimes all a city has to do is make a certain food really well. You’ve probably heard big cities like New York or Chicago referred to as pizza capitals of the country (or even the world), but there’s a tiny town in Florida that might just give them a run for their money.

Chick-fil-A Expands Breakfast Menu With Hash Brown Scramble Bowl, Burrito

Chick-fil-A lovers have long been able to order their favorite chicken sandwich in breakfast form via a biscuit. Now they can get it in bowl form, complete with hash browns. 

The fast food chicken joint announced today the launch of its first breakfast bowl, the Hash Brown Scramble.

The new meal is made with Chick-fil-A’s tot hash browns, scrambled eggs, cheese, jalapeño salsa, and choice of chicken nuggets or sausage.

The fast food chain explains that it wants to give its customers more options and saw an opportunity to reach people looking for breakfast bowls, an increasingly popular option for those tired of breakfast sandwiches.

In addition to the new bowl, Chick-fil-A says it will replace also offer a Hash Brown Scramble burrito, which will replace the current breakfast burrito.

The breakfast offerings are just the latest new offerings at Chick-fil-A. The company began testing a $30 family style meal back in July. A month before that, the chain debuted a gluten-free bun.

Crabby Bill’s on Clearwater Beach Sports Fresh New Look

After serving 17 years as a popular local restaurant, it became apparent to the owners of Crabby’s Dockside (or Crabby Bill’s) and the City of Clearwater that the restaurant needed a fresh new look. Crabby’s provided the winning architectural proposal in a competition to the City of Clearwater to build a new restaurant and renew a 30-year lease.3 The old building, a converted gas station dating back to the 1970s, was demolished to make room for a new building and plaza designed by Klar and Klar Architects.2 Klar and Klar Architects and interior designers worked together with Crabby’s team to create a modern design which includes three stories providing three separate and unique dining experiences. On March 31, 2017, Crabby’s reopened with a unique open, colorful, and airy look.

Klar and Klar Architects’ award-winning coastal designs complement the upbeat beach environment. “We wanted to create a piece of architecture that was exemplary of the current trends happening on Clearwater Beach,” says Steve Klar, principal architect and co-founder of Klar and Klar Architects. “Crabby’s custom architecture creates a seamless experience for the beach crowd where they can fully enjoy all the beauty and tranquility the beach environment has to offer.”

The new Crabby Bill’s includes a third-floor protected rooftop deck with some of the most spectacular panoramic views of Clearwater Beach.3 An outside bar area and sidewalk seating on the first floor were designed to accommodate more casual beachgoers.2 For Clearwater’s hot summer days, the second story offers air conditioning dining with floor-to-ceiling windows installed to offer gorgeous views while beating the heat.2

Since the design has been completed, Crabby Bill’s has been immensely busy as both locals and tourists clamor for fresh seafood in a beautiful setting. “We’re glad we could artistically contribute to the development of the local coastal aesthetic and allow the new architecture to bring people to this tried and true family spot,” Klar added. “As the new Crabby’s is the first building you see when approaching the roundabout on Clearwater Beach, it was important to highlight both the modern nature of redesigned Clearwater Beach and the natural beauty of the gulf coast.”

Klar and Klar Architects is dedicated to providing unique, contemporary, organic architectural design to the Tampa Bay Area in order to inject life and improve the culture of the bay communities. Their buildings are designed to sustain the test of time and improve the visually built environment and culture of the area.

Since 2001, Crabby Bill’s in Clearwater Beach has been serving quality seafood at its 37 Causeway Boulevard location. Crabby Bill’s in Clearwater Beach is currently managed by Prime Cost Management Group.2 The company manages three Crabby’s locations, including Crabby Bill’s Clearwater Beach, Crabby’s Bar & Grill and Crabby Bill’s St. Cloud.2

Restaurant Jobs Are the New Factory Jobs

Donald Trump’s ideal economy is defined by brawn. He praises steelworkers, speaks wistfully of coal mining, and tweets boastfully about new manufacturing factories. But 200 days into his presidency, the most promising sector of the U.S. labor market isn’t steel-plating. It’s dinner-plating.

Restaurant jobs are on fire in 2017, growing faster than health care, construction, or manufacturing. The Bureau of Labor Statistics calls this subsector “food services and drinking places,” and the jobs are mostly at sit-down restaurants, which make up 50 percent of the category. Fast-food joints are the next-largest employer in the category, with 37 percent. Bars—wonderful, plentiful, but leanly staffed—account for just 3 percent. So, I’m just going to keep saying “restaurants” for short.

In some metros, restaurants are powering the entire economy. More than a third of Cleveland’s new jobs since 2015 are in restaurants, according to EMSI data. The same is true for New Orleans, but since 2010.

Unlike mining or manufacturing, which tends to cluster in a handful of regions, the restaurant boom is spread across the country. New fine-dining restaurants, which tend to require more waitstaff, are blooming in all the predictable places—San Francisco, Nashville, and Austin (the Texas capital leads the country in percent-growth of restaurant jobs). But restaurants are dominating local economies in a diverse range of places, from poor metros like Little Rock, to rich places like Washington, D.C., and military hubs like Virginia Beach.

How did this happen? As Justin Fox points out, the trend didn’t appear overnight. For the past three decades, restaurants have steadily grown, as part of the most fundamental shift in American work—from making things to serving people. Between 1990 and 2008, 98 percent of new jobs came from so-called “nontradable” industries that aren’t sensitive to international trade, according to the economist Michael Spence.

In 1990, manufacturing was almost three times larger than the food-service industry. But restaurants have gradually closed the gap. At current rates of growth, more people will work at restaurants than in manufacturing in 2020. This mirrors the shift in consumer spending. Restaurants’ share of America’s food budget has doubled from 25 percent in the 1950s to 50 percent today.

The phenomenon is speeding up. Four of the five best years for restaurant growth on record have happened since 2011. Restaurant jobs have grown faster than the overall economy every month since August 2010. (That’s more than 200 consecutive months!) It’s not just a redundant artifact of the service-sector economy, either. Almost every month between 1996 and 2000—years when job creation soared in a booming economy—restaurant jobs grew slower than the rest of the labor market.

The trend is speeding up, but it’s not clear that we should cheer it—or whether it’s sustainable. Jobs are jobs, but these ones don’t pay very well. The typical private-sector job pays about $22 an hour. The typical restaurant job pays about $12.50. That’s one reason why the Fight for 15 movement to raise the minimum wage has targeted the restaurant industry. What’s more, although it might feel like a golden age of restaurants in America, the truth is that the United States might have too many restaurants, particularly “family-casual” chains like Applebee’s, which have struggled to keep up with rising labor costs.

But the most important feature of the restaurant-jobs boom is not what it may say about the future, but rather the fact that it is happening in the first place. Trump and other politicians often say they want to help the common worker. But then they talk about the economy as if it were cryogenically frozen sometime around 1957. The U.S. still makes stuff, but mostly it serves stuff. To help American workers, it helps to begin with an honest accounting of what Americans actually do.

Krispy Kreme Celebrates Solar Eclipse by Debuting Chocolate Glazed Donut

Donut fans, this one is for you. Krispy Kreme is set to debut a limited run of donuts that coincides with the solar eclipse. The donut chain will offer a chocolate rendition of the classic Original Glazed on August 21, the same day as the natural event. There is a catch though, customers are only allowed to purchase the limited donut before its debut during the Hot Light hours on August 19, 20 and all day on Monday the 21.

In a statement by Jackie Woodward, the CMO of Krispy Kreme states:

“The solar eclipse is a rare occasion providing a total sensory experience for viewers across the continental U.S. Chocolate will have the same effect as we introduce a first-time chocolate glazing of our iconic Original Glazed Doughnut. The Chocolate Glazed Doughnut is a delicious way to experience the solar eclipse — no matter where you are — and we can’t wait for fans to try it.”

Will you be picking up the treats?

Krispy Kreme & Reese’s Debut Mouthwatering Peanut Butter Doughnuts

If you’re a big fan of Krispy Kreme doughnuts and Reese’s peanut butter, then you don’t want to miss their newest offering — Krispy Kreme Reese’s Peanut Butter Doughnut.

Combining two classic flavors, the delicious donut is filled with a Reese’s Peanut Butter Kreme filling, dipped in chocolate icing and topped with a chocolate and peanut butter drizzle, as well as Reese’s mini peanut butter chips and peanuts.

“Similar to our hot, fresh doughnuts, the matchmaking of chocolate and peanut butter is a delicious combination that consumers have enjoyed for generations,” said Jackie Woodward, Chief Marketing Officer of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. “In partnering with The Hershey Company, we’re satisfying an intense desire that Krispy Kreme and Reese’s fans never knew they had.”

The new Reese’s Peanut Butter Doughnut will be available in participating U.S. Krispy Kreme shops for a limited time starting this Friday, August 4, 2017.
